Bilbao BBK Live is a three day festival that takes place in the outskirts of Bilbao. The festival site, located on top of a hill and surrounded by mountains, offers breathtaking views over the city of Bilbao.

This fuss free festival, with an uncomplicated layout and easy access from the city and the airport, 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!
While in the festival, take the opportunity to visit the city, just 10 minutes bus ride from the festival site. Bilbao is a modern city famous for its architecture, museums and gastronomy, and it’s just a stone’s throw away from the beach.
