Bilbao BBK Live 2017 add Royal Blood, Brian Wilson, Explosions in The Sky and more to line-up
Bilbao BBK Live have expanded its line-up for 2017 with event by adding Royal Blood, Brian Wilson presents Pet Sounds, Explosions in The Sky, Joe Goddard live and more.
The latest additions join the lineup alongside the likes of Depeche Mode, The Killers, Phoenix and Justice who will play atop the Kobetamendi Hill in the the heart of the Basque Country.
Brighton rock Royal Blood are renowned for their riff heavy live shows, so much so that they had the privilege of hitting the road with Foo Fighters have taken them on the road – make of that what you will, what that means for the band i’m not sure.
A true master of his craft; as the primary songwriter for 60s legends The Beach Boys, Brian Wilson is responsible for some of the most memorable pop songs of all time not least on the band’s seminal album Pet Sounds and will play the same set that had the good people of Barcelona falling week at the knees during Primavera last summer.Explosions In The Sky’s epic post-rock has seen them soundtrack emotional on screen roller coasters like Friday Night Lights and last year’s blockbuster movie Deepwater Horizon. Their set is sure to be one of the most atmospheric of the festival and where better to see it than on the picturesque Kobetamendi Hill. Hailing from Bristol, post-punk quintet IDLES have gained a reputation for their noisy punk sounds and their sweaty, incendiary live shows. With a driving rhythmic basis and lyrics that are both poetic and funny, they are one of the bands to watch out for in 2017 and with debut album ‘Brutalism’ on the way.
Whether on his own or as one half of acclaimed DJ duo The 2 Bears, Joe Goddard has graced the booth of practically every sought-after club night in the UK. Best known as a member of Hot Chip, he’s responsible for some of the most instantly recognizable synth pop of all time and is sure to offer one of the standout sets of the weekend.
Elsewhere Columbian rockers Aterciopelados, Madrid-based indie pop sextet Los Punsetes and Spanish six-piece Zazkel also join the lineup.
