Last year's festival 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.
Tickets to the festival are priced at the impressively bargain price of £70 for a weekend including camping (early bird offer available until December 11). Budget airlines Easyjet and Vueling both serve Bilbao airport from London.
