Benicassim Preview: The Stone Roses, Bob Dylan And New Order

The Stone Roses, Bob Dylan, Florence + The Machine and New Order are set to headline the Mediterranean all-night party that is Festival Internacional de Benicàssim 2012 in Spain.

For The Stone Roses, it will be one of their biggest performances since they announced, in October last year, that they were reuniting.

John Squire, Ian Brown, Mani and Reni will play at the famous Spanish festival on Saturday 14 July.

Located just a mile or so from the beach, Benicàssim, as it's better known, is far from your typical British music festival offering - forget your wellies, this event is all about flip-flops.

To compensate for the Spanish daytime heat (it's expected to be around 34 degrees) all of the action takes place at night, with headliners arriving on stage at 1am and the normal pre-headliner finishing off the night at 3am. For hardcore festival-goers, DJs take you through to sunrise at 6am.

Over 100 acts will perform over 4 days and over 4 stages. Joining music legends such as Bob Dylan and New Order will be contemporary big name UK artists like Ed Sheeran, Jessie J, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and The Vaccines - plus French house music DJ David Guetta.

Take a look at some of the biggest acts performing at this year's Benicàssim Festival below...
