With a line up that boasts Green Day, Depeche Mode, Kings of Leon and Fatboy Slim as well as running at the same time as San Fermin, the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain's Bilbao BBK Live is set to be a highlight of the summer 2013.

TNT is proud to be official media partner for the festival. Last year's BBK in the Spanish sunshine saw record attendance numbers and sets from Radiohead and The Cure. This year punk rockers Green Day, notorious for their raucous spectacular and lengthy sets with crowd participation will headline.

The most successful band in electronic music history, Depeche Mode, will return for their second appearance at Bilbao BBK.

Deloretos, Delorean, We Are Standard and L.A. will also play the weekend, which takes place over 3 days from July 11-13.

Promising to perform material from their new album "Opposites", Glaswegians Biffy Clyro join Swedish garage rock band The Hives and festival crowd pleaser Fatboy Slim, amongst others.

Depeche Mode are set to thrill audiences at Bilabo BBK 2013 

Bilbao BBK Live keeps growing and attracting the biggest names in music today. Previous editions of the event have included headliners such as Coldplay, Pearl Jam, Black Crowes, Jane’s Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Suede.

Three Day Early Bird tickets to Bilbao BBK Live, including camping, are now on sale until the 22nd of January, for just £77 on See Tickets and Ticketweb. Budget airlines Easyjet and Vueling both serve Bilbao airport from London.

Fatboy Slim will rock the crowds with his unique brand of Big Beat festival favourites  

More acts will be announced very soon, so stay tuned to our website, Twitter and Facebook page.

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 site, its proximity to the city and beach and a late start of bands, allow festivalgoers to make the most of this event and unique 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.
