The line up for FIB Benicassim has expanded once again, with Bob Dylan set to headline.

It might be fifty years since he put out his first record but Bob Dylan can still light up the news feeds. Fresh from the announcement that he is to headline Hop Farm, the legendary rock songwriter has also confirmed his involvement with FIB Benicassim.

Bob Dylan will headline the Spanish festival, with rumours continuing that he is back in the studio. Fresh from a tour with Mark Knopfler, the songwriter will take his acclaimed band to Benicassim.

The line up already contains some stellar attractions. Reformed Manchester icons The Stone Roses will appear at FIB Benicassim, while New Order, Florence & The Machine and more have been named on the bill.

Seminal Afro clad post-hardcore nut-jobs At The Drive-In will stop by, while other names on the line up include Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, De La Soul, Dizzee Rascal, The Horrors, The Maccabees, Bombay Bicycle Club and The Vaccines.

The latest batch of additions stretches from electro-pop producers to psychedelic outlaws. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs will appear at FIB Benicassim, with the Oxford producer set to make a sizeable dent in the mainstream during 2012.

Pop princess Jessie J will appear, while former Soft Boy and all round genius Robyn Hitchcock will also perform. Backed by the Venus 3, Hitchcock will breeze through his back catalogue and no doubt throw in a few unexpected treats.

Now, isn't that a pleasant way to spent a sun-baked Spanish afternoon?

Tickets are on sale now.
