More great names are packing their instruments, decks and sunglasses and heading for Benicàssim in July. Echo & The Bunnymen The legendary Echo & The Bunnymen come to FIB with a set dripping in hits like “The Killing Moon” and “The Cutter”. One of the most influential bands of the 80s when they released a string of amazing albums including debut “Crocodiles” and of course, “Ocean Rain” – a record their shy, retiring frontman Ian McCulloch described as “the greatest album ever made… when I sing “The Killing Moon” I know there isn’t a band in the world who’s got a song anywhere near that”. Band of Skulls Band Of Skulls fourth album, “By Default”, is the sound of a group on the sharpest form of their career, more engaged and focused than they’ve ever been. An album that electrifies with rock’ n’ roll cut back to its most vivid elements, expertly – sculpted three-minute bursts so unashamedly anthemic and accessible they’ll soundtrack the Festival! Dorian A huge welcome for Dorian, one of the key Spanish bands you really shouldn’t miss at FIB. A mix of new wave, electronica and indie rock, Dorian are widely and rightly considered to be one of the foremost Spanish acts at home and abroad. Find out why they’ve accumulated more than 50 million views on youtube. Breakbot Crafty ideas whipped-up in a vintage outfit with techno vibes and futuristic accelerations creating a perfectly current soundtrack. Tomorrow’s retro that they present at FIB this July. Intricate and bouncy tracks with Stevie Wonder and the Motown crowd in the background, spouts of funk and disco on a well-trodden dancefloor. Check this out… Two very different acts make their way from California to Castellón this summer. The eerie and immersive world soundtracked by The Soft Moon will pull you in with bass that reeks of chorus, unrelenting mechanized beats, wailing synthesizers and angular guitar lines that worm into your ears and never leave. Meanwhile, Tijuana Panthers will wow you with their witty, danceable fusion of surf, garage rock and punk making their Benicàssim debut. We’re also thrilled to announce that Pacosan (think lo-fi psychedelia and electronica), John Grvy (think Frank Ocean or James Blake) and DJ Maadraassoo will all be joining us for the greatest weekend of the summer!

Jess Glynne, Rosario, All Saints, KT Tunstall, Los Secretos, Foxes and 99 Souls are the first to join the family festival’s fifth birthday line-up. The Gibraltar Music Festival announces the first round of artists for its fifth birthday edition. Stereophonics will top the bill, joined by Jess Glynne, Rosario, All Saints, KT Tunstall, Foxes, Los Secretos, 99 Souls, Concept and The Second Sons. The festival has a history of bringing the biggest and best live acts from around the globe to perform in Victoria Stadium and 2016 sees two new stages added to the programme. Providing one of the most varied and high calibre festival experiences across the summer season, it’s perfect for the whole family. Taking place 3rd & 4th of September, the event ends the summer on a high. Tickets start at £79, with free tickets for children under 12, and are available from 8am, 6th May. Having previously played host to Duran Duran, Kings of Leon and Paloma Faith, Gibraltar Music Festival’s fifth birthday year promises to impress even further with the first act announced as seminal welsh rockers Stereophonics. Emerging as a bright new noise in the UK alternative rock scene in the1990’s, Stereophonics have firmly established themselves as the greatest Welsh band of their generation. The four piece continue to prove their musical prowess with a new number one album, Keep The Village Alive, and will no doubt treat the crowds to new and old Stereophonic classics. Jess Glynne is on the rise as one of the UKs most treasured urban artists. With vocal cords to beat any, Glynne has blasted onto the commercial music scene over the past year, gaining a UK number one album with I Cry When I Laugh which served up a mighty four top ten singles. 2016 marks the return of All Saints who originally rose to fame in the 1990’s releasing nine top ten singles in the UK, including ‘Never Ever’ and ‘Bootie Call’. Following a sold out London show, All Saints have released a brand new album titled ‘Red Flag’ and will be playing on the main stage at this year’s Gibraltar Music Festival. BRIT Award winner and Grammy nominee KT Tunstall broke into the public eye in 2004 with her songs “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree”. Since her last album Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon released in 2013, Tunstall has been working on a sixth album to be released this year, so ticket holders can expect to hear brand new material this September. Louisa Rose Allan aka Foxes joins the bill for the Gibraltar Music Festival’s fifth birthday. The English singer songwriter has risen to fame since her vocals featured on Zedd’s 2012 single Clarity, and rose to number eight in the Billboard 100. Since then Foxes has released a critically acclaimed first album and a punchy second at the end of 2015 titled All I Need. The two time Latin Grammy winning Rosario will bring a unrivalled performance to the festival on the rock. Daughter of Spain’s musical dynasty, Rosario Flores has released nine stunning albums into the world, providing countless musical classics. Rosario is one of Spain’s musical heroes and is sure to impress at the Gibraltar Music Festival. Spanish rockers Los Secretos (‘The Secrets’) will be serving up some classics to the 14,000 strong audience this summer. Having made their mark in the 80’s and 90’s, the five piece continues to draw the crowds today. 99 Souls join this year’s Gibraltar Music Festival, having just hit UK and USA television and radio stations with single The Girl Is Mine, the single reached the top five in the UK singles chart in January 2016. Fresh up and coming UK and local talent will share a stage with the international artists. Hailing from London, Rock and Roll quintet The Second Sons and five piece band Concept are set to join the fifth birthday celebrations at the Gibraltar Music Festival with more to be announced. The first of the local acts confirmed for 2016 are Frontiers, Hollie April, Metro Motel and Dead City Radio. With more big names to be announced in the coming weeks including the full dance stage line up and details of the brand new comedy offerings, 2016 is shaping up to be Gibraltar Music Festival’s biggest year yet.

The election of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader has galvanised a new generation of activists and this year atLeft Field we aim to give them a platform to discuss issues around social justice, the economy, gender and the possibilities for genuine change under a Corbyn government. With the results of the referendum on our membership of the European Union due to be declared during the festival, we’ll be trying to make sense of what the outcome means for Britain and its people. Whether we vote to leave or remain, the issue of how we respond to those who come to our continent seeking asylum will not go away and we’ll be addressing the issue of our responsibilities to those who come seeking our help. And for the first time, Left Field will be hosting a panel of young speakers from the Green Kids Field who will be coming down to tell us about the things that are important to them. We’ve got great live music from bands with something to say, comedians who pull no punches and our ever popular Radical Round Up, which draws in singer-songwriters who want to change the world. So come down and spend an hour or two under our big top tent and recharge your activism. Read more at
