After a bumper 217 edition that featured the likes of Phoenix, The Killers, Two Door Cinema Club, Daphni and loads more, Bilbao BBK have announced a couple of big-hitters for their 2018 event.
After a storming festival season of their own, The xx will head to the Spanish festival next July with their latest album ‘I See You’ and more.
Meanwhile, Noodle, 2-D, Murdoc and Russel – better known as animated rabble Gorillaz – will head to the event with recent LP ‘Humanz’ and their wealth of feel good (inc) hits.
Bilbao BBK gets underway between 12-14th July 2018. Tickets are on sale now.

Celebratory and instinctively inclusive, no band could have done it better.
All in, it’s classic Gorillaz: a mixed bag mostly stuffed with delights, that fares extremely favourably on the banger to clanger ratio.
‘Song Machine’ might have been born from a playful spirit, but it’s also an album that finds Gorillaz holding a mirror to the modern world’s divisions, and offering up a far more utopian alternative.
The LP fizzles with a self-made, impromptu energy.
