As those already familiar with the Bilbao BBK Live festival would know, it's not unusual to see bands of the calibre of RADIOHEAD headlining an event that is increasingly well known for its strong line-ups. Previous editions of the event have included headliners such as Coldplay, Pearl Jam, Depeche Mode, Jane’s Addiction, RHCP and Suede.
Three Day Early Bird tickets to the festival, which include camping, will be available for just £73 from the 14th December and until the 24th of January on See Tickets, Ticketweb and Lastminute.com.
Bilbao BBK Live is a three day event that takes place on top of a hill surrounded by mountains offering spectacular views over the city of Bilbao. The privileged location of the festival site, its proximity to the city and beach and a late start of bands, allow festival goers to make the most of this unique event and setting. Bilbao is a modern city famous for its architecture, museums and gastronomy, and it’s just a stone’s throw away from some of the best waves in Europe.
Bilbao BBK Live is above all, a fuss free festival; with an uncomplicated layout, easy access from the city and airport, it has proven to be a huge success with national and international festival goers. The two main stages and the schedule, guarantees that acts never overlap, so you get everything you have paid for and much more!
