null Discoveries and reunions at Bilbao BBK Live 2022

Established for several years as one of the best festivals both nationally and internationally, BBK Live will allow you to enjoy the latest musical trends for three days with the best atmosphere.

The festival has been held since 2006 at the Kobetamendi venue, on the slopes of Mount Cobetas, and international artists such as Andrés Calamaro, Coldplay, Green Day, Iron Maiden, Lenny Kravitz, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Police have performed on its stages. However, there is also room for Basque groups and artists such as Fermín Muguruza, Fito y Fitipaldis and Berri Txarrak. In 2022, the fifteenth edition will be held with a line-up as explosive as it is varied.

During the festival, Kobetamendi becomes an indie village for 3 days, bringing together the present and future of the best international music. Every year, the BBK Live festival attracts thousands of music fans from all corners of the world. With a capacity of 15,000 people, the Kobetamendi area, in addition to the stages, also offers the possibility of camping, among other services.

The fifteenth edition of Bilbao BBK Live will be held on the 7, 8 and 9 July 2022.  After two years in which the pandemic has postponed the event, Bilbao BBK Live reconfirms the attendance of international bands such as The Killers, the American band known for songs like Human or Mr.Brightside. Pet Shop Boys, with more than 40 singles in the UK top 30. Finally, the alternative rock band, Placebo. The Brits have been in the music industry for more than 25 years and have released 8 studio albums.

Other big names that Bilbao BBK Live has confirmed for the next edition are Caribou, BICEP live, Supergrass and Slowthai. But that's not all, the organisers are still negotiating with the bands and, after the summer, they will announce the full line-up with new and important additions.

Do you have tickets for 2020 or 2021? Don't worry because 2020/2021 tickets are valid for 2022!

At the end of the summer, once the full line-up for the 2022 edition has been announced, we will open the return period for tickets that were purchased for the 2020 and 2021 editions. Until then, if you have any questions, you can write to us at


Get ready for three thrilling days of concerts, dancing and excitement. The festival is held on Mount Kobetas, so we recommend you wear comfortable clothes and shoes. On the other hand, your backpack should be packed with sunglasses, sun cream and a mackintosh in case it rains at some point. Remember to wear your festival wristband at all times. BBK Live is for all ages but children under 16 can only enter accompanied by an adult. Likewise, children under the age of 10 get in free

How to reach us

La organización del festival ofrece dos líneas de autobuses gratuitos, que circulan ininterrumpidamente desde las 12:00 horas de mañana, jueves 9 de julio, y hasta las 12:00 horas del domingo, día 12, con frecuencias de servicio variables, según la demanda y las necesidades previstas. Estos autobuses saldrán desde el centro de Bilbao, cerca de la estación de metro de San Mamés y de la Intermodal y también desde el BEC en Barakaldo (cerca de la parada de metro de Ansio). Todos los días del festival, a partir de aproximadamente las 16:00, pararán en las inmediaciones de la antigua fábrica de Beyena, y desde allí el público deberá recorrer los escasos 800 metros que les separan del recinto del festival.

Estos autobuses subirán hasta la puerta del festival hasta las 16:00. De ahí en adelante, dada la cantidad de gente, se hará la parada en la ex fábrica Beyena. Por lo tanto, el resto de viaje se tendrá que hacer a pie. Para bajar de Kobetamendi, los autobuses saldrán también desde la antigua fábrica de Beyena con destino a San Mamés y al BEC.


Where to eat

The gastronomic offer of the BBK Live festival is based on the 'food truck' philosophy, with vans selling food. You have at your disposal tasty dishes to recover your strength between concerts: from hot dogs, homemade pizzas, sandwiches, hamburgers (also vegan), chips, kebabs, sandwiches made with gourmet and artisanal bread...

On the other hand, if you fancy a sweet treat, you can choose from refreshing ice creams or delicious crêpes. By the way, if you are vegetarian or celiac you won't have any problem either, as you can choose from different options and even gluten-free beer. Enjoy!


Where to sleep

Just three kilometres away from the festival site, the BBK Live camping area is a large green area surrounded by trees, with a capacity for around 12,000 people and a surface area of approximately 120,000 square metres.

There is also the option of sleeping in 'glamping', a 'deluxe' campsite offering a hotel service (single or double bed, with bed linen, electricity and even a breakfast buffet). All this under the stars of Kobetamendi.

If you prefer the comfort of a closed room, you can book accommodation in Bilbao. From Kobetamendi you can take the public bus down to the city centre where a wide range of hotels, hostels ... awaits you to rest.
