Bilbao BBK Live is a wicked music festival that, as the name suggests, is set in the Basque city of Bilboao and attracts music lovers around the globe keen for a sense of tradition mixed with some serious rock n roll. The 2012 gig will be headlined by The Cure and Radiohead (really doesn’t get much better for rock lovers) and will also feature popular bands such as; Garbage, Mumford & Sons, Snow Patrol, The Kooks, The Maccabees, Bloc Party, Enter Shikari, Young Guns, Pure Love, Ben Howard and The Jon Spencer Blues Band Explosion.
Bilbao BBK Live is now in its seventh year and this year festival goers can enjoy three days of non-stop music from July 12th – 14th. Tickets are priced at just £88 so with Glastonbury not happening this year and the cost of other European festivals on the up, it is the perfect option for genuine music lovers.
