WhoMadeWho gained further popularity when they headlined the Benicàssim festival in 2007 after a delay caused scheduled headliners, Klaxons, to arrive too late to play their set.
On 21 February 2014, they played with Arisa the song Cuccurucucu, a tribute to Franco Battiato, at Festival of Sanremo 2014, Italy.
