The confirmed acts for Bilbao BBK Live include Crack Magazine cover stars IDLES, along with Brockhampton, Rosalía, Nils Frahm, Modeselektor, Vince Staples, Yaeji, Princess Nokia and Kero Kero Bonito.

Alongside Rosalía, the festival will spotlight some of the leading Spanish-language artists of the moment. Reggaetonera Ms Nina, trap duo Mueveloreina and soul singer Nathy Peluso will make an appearance and represent the Spanish music scene to an international audience.

These acts and more will perform over three days atop the Kobetamendi Mountain. The festival’s location on the green slopes of Kobetamendi provides a unique and picturesque concert space. The mountain is located to the south west of the Basque city of Bilbao, which has been heralded as an art and design capital.

Three-day passes are currently valued at €125, and are available via Bilbao BBK Live’s website. Read Crack’s Issue 95 cover story with IDLES.
