We are proud to announce that The Kooks, Glasvegas and Warpaint have all been added to the line-up of Bilbao BBK Live festival. The Kooks and Warpaint are scheduled to play on Friday the 13th July, the day Radiohead will be headlining. Glasvegas, on the other hand, will perform on Saturday the 14th.
The Kooks, a British four piece formed in Brighton in 2004, released their fourth album “Junk on the Heart” in September 2011. Their debut album from 2006 “Inside In/Inside Out” has sold over 2 million copies to date and has generated six Top 40 singles in the UK.
Hailing from Scotland, Glasvegas came together nine years ago in Glasgow and released their homonymous debut album in September 2008; surprisingly two months later they released their second album, a Christmas mini-album named “A Snowflake Fell (And It Felt Like a Kiss)”. Last year they released their third album “Euphoric///Heartbreak”.
Lastly, the all girl quartet from Los Angeles Warpaint released their first LP “The Fool” in 2010. Having previously released and EP (‘Exquisite Corpse’, 2008), mixed and mastered by John Frusciante (ex-member of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers), their music has been described as experimental alt-rock.
Sadly our second announcement is that Klaxons has cancelled all their summer commitments, including Bilbao BBK Live festival, to concentrate in the recording of their new album. We wish them all the best and hope to see them soon in Bilbao!
But announcements don’t end here: This year Bilbao BBK Live will be launching a third major stage adding 20 more international bands to the line-up of the event.
Finally, our last bit of news for now is that Day Tickets for Thursday and Friday will go on sale on Friday the 10th Feb at £46 + booking fee each day. Day tickets for Saturday will be available soon after the announcement of the third headliner.
