It's All Indie's FIB 2018 recommendations

FIB (Festival Internacional de Benicàssim) 2018 is only a month away! The full line-up has been announced and we can honestly say that it does not disappoint. Combining a mixture of some our favourite established indie artists (The Killers, Liam Gallagher) as well as the exciting new acts (Bodega, Pale Waves, Our Girl), FIB certainly caters for every indie fan out there. Stage splits have been confirmed. With four stages showcasing an array of bands it is always difficult to choose which acts to see on each of the festival's four days. The festival site is relatively small which it makes very easy to see all your favourite acts, the biggest distance is between the Las Palmas Stage and the South Beach Dance Stage which take about five minutes to get to from each other. The others are only a few minutes away which is great.

Considering it is difficult to select which bands to see throughout the festival, us at It's All Indie have decided to compile a list of recommendations to catch on each day as a guideline for all of you attending FIB this year. Check it out below!


The two piece band who describe themselves as an 'International supersonic spectral wave Liverpool band' will certainly bring the energy to the first night of the festival. Catch them on the South Beach Dance Stage.

The Magic Gang:
Our Brighton favourites are unmissable at any festival. With music that is a mix between The Beach Boys, 50s rock n roll and modern day indie, the 'feel good vibe' will most definitely be brought to The Visa Stage.

Pale Waves:
Dirty Hit 'Sounds of 2018' Pale Waves will be headlining the intimate Radio 3 FIB Club Stage on Thursday night. Bringing their catchy indie pop hits such as 'There's a Honey' and 'Heavenly', the tent is going to be a party for sure. Don't miss them!

A festival will not be complete without a set from Irish indie rockers Two Door Cinema Club.

New York alternative punk rockers Bodega will be making their FIB début this year. Having caused a exciting stir on the indie music scene, Bodega are a band that have a big future ahead of them. With catchy tunes such as 'Can't Knock the Hustle' and 'How Did This Happen!?', the band's set on the Radio 3 FIB Club Stage will be one to remember.
