Muse, The Chemical Brothers, Massive Attack, Disclosure (Live), The 1975 and The Vaccines will be among the bands headlining this summer’s International Benicàssim Festival (FIB), organizers have revealed.

Scheduled to take place between July 14 and 17, the Castellón festival recently announced that Kendrick Lamar, Major Lazer, Jamie XX and The Maccabees, among others, would also be figuring in this year’s lineup.

British rock band Muse are certain to prove a major lure as this will be their only appearance in Spain this summer. Known for their stunning live performances and stage designs, the group will be presenting a new show exclusively for the FIB date.

Also on the bill are The 1975, The Vaccines, and the UK’s current “most exciting” guitar band, Catfish and the Bottlemen

Also from the UK, The Chemical Brothers will be offering a “multi-sensorial” live show. Over the past 20 years, band members Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons have redefined the rules of live electronic music performance with their surprising sound and light spectaculars.

Disclosure duo Guy and Howard Lawrence’s dance anthems have placed them at the vanguard of the new British dance explosion and will be performing tracks from new album Caracal.

Also joining them on the bill are veteran Bristol trip-hoppers Massive Attack, alternative rockers The 1975, the high octane The Vaccines, and the UK's current “most exciting” guitar band, Catfish and the Bottlemen.

Among the Spanish acts performing are Madrid band Hinds – whose debut disc was British music magazine the NME’s album of the month – Valencian act Ramírez Exposure, Soledad Vélez, Kero Kero Bonito and Perlita.

“Many more names” are yet to be incorporated in this year’s lineup, according to festival organizers.
