bilbao BBk Live Reveals New Names For Their 2023 ANNUAL LINE-UP FEATURING FRIDAYS NEW HEADLINER, PAVEMENT
BBK Bilbao Live will be coming back for its annual summer festival with a lot of heat packed! The festival will take place from the 6th to the 8th of July this very 2023 in Northern Spain. The three-day event is filled with big headliners including the soulful Florence + The Machine on the first day with her bright voice and eerie style. The recently resurfaced cult indie heroes Pavement tackle the second, while Arctic Monkeys lead the third.
Alongside the Headliners, some of the follow-up artists are Arca, Perfume Genius, Art School Girlfriend, Dalila, María Escarmiento and so many more. All the performances named so far provide a huge variety with indie, house, pop, rock amongst others, ensuring that there is something for the festival-goers to recognise and explore.
BBK takes place in the Basque region of Spain. The festival itself sits on-top of the natural space of Mountains of Kobetamendi (Mount Cobetas in Basque) and Arazzi which allows for a gorgeous view from the festival, overlooking the city of Bilbao.
The live acts begin at 5pm each day and end as late as 5am. Art and the importance of natural environment are a fundamental part of the festival’s creative assets and the artwork will be featuring the legend of ‘Tximistarri’, a Basque word meaning ‘light stone’, made by the artist Vicente Paredes. As the morning sun shines, there are also free yoga classes to join, and you can even take the coach to explore the city of Bilbao. Bilbao is a gorgeous city packed with a lot of sight-seeing opportunities, surrounded by mountains and a vibrant-coloured riverside.
BBK strives to emphasise the importance of raising awareness around climate change. Alongside making changes to the festival that are environmentally friendly, they will continue to use €3 from every purchase of a ticket to go towards reforestation of the area burned in Balmaseda, Enkarterri, to help rebuild the affected area that was burnt away.
