Spanish festival Bilbao BBK Live has announced more acts who will be joining its already stellar lineup on July 6 through July 8 next year.
The event, situated in the grounds of Basque Country, has added Fever Ray, Jamie xx, HAAi, M83, SHERELLE, Idles and Phoenix to an already stacked programme including a variety of non-electronic and electronic acts.
Florence + The Machine, Arctic Monkeys, The Chemical Brothers, Ben UFO, Call Super and Avalon Emerson have already been revealed for the festival earlier this year amongst others, with “many more still to be announced”.

Attendees can expect a melting-pot of sounds from high-energy, pumping beats to synth-pop to post-punk, with something on offer to suit even the most selective of listeners.
Bilbao BBK also aims to spotlight broad creative endeavours, holding a longstanding art-music alliance with artist Vicente Paredes showcasing the identity and idiosyncrasy of Euskadi, a community within the festival’s situation. And away from creative-orientated focuses, the festival is attempting to place more emphasis on its surrounding natural environment and its importance by raising awareness and allocating €3 of every ticket sold to reforesting and restoring a local burned-down area.
