I just spent four days in Benicassim, Spain at the Festival Internacional de Benicassim, a huge music festival by the beach.
The conditions weren't too savage-like; cold showers and portable toilets were right next to our tent.
As for the music, Calvin Harris and The Prodigy were by far the most fun.
I thought it would be a good idea to be right at the front of the Prodigy show, but little did I know how freaking intense it would be. I was surrounded by large shirtless English guys who wanted to get as rowdy as possible. I was up for that.
After 40 minutes of throbbing bass and nonstop jumping (I felt like an aerobics instructor), I had to get outta there. I ended up getting a hard elbow to the nose, the scab on my elbow ripped off and groped several times. I still had fun though.
Other great performances were Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend and Ray Davies.
I don't have any pictures to share because I locked up my camera to prevent it from getting stolen. My wallet, however, did get stolen. $200 in the red. Ouch. And Ged lost his camera at the Prodigy show.
Pretty tired because I've been staying up until 4 a.m. the last few days. I need to find my hostel and crash for a few hours.
