The event was consolidated very fast in the European musical agenda thanks to a very open mentality in terms of styles and themes, accommodating practically all existing musical genres. Not surprisingly, very few festivals have been able to bring together in a single edition such heterogeneous artists as Leonard Cohen, Enrique Morente or Morrissey (as happened in 2008).
The FIB 2017 will take place, as always, in the Castellón town of Benicàssim. In fact, one of the great demands of the festival has always been the proximity of the sea, which allows to combine the musical plane with other celebrated entertainment options, especially among young people. Since 2005, the celebration of the event takes place during the third weekend of July, changing the original location of the first week of August to prevent overcrowding.
