BBK Live hosts this year its 14th edition with a line-up as thrilling as varied.
BBK Music Legends Festival is synonymous with nostalgia, with music “legends”. The Legends is therefore an excellent excuse to dust off your favorite t-shirt, the one of the myths and classics, of the eternal youth.
The fifth edition comes up with a thrilling line-up and guaranteeing an unforgettable event.
BBK Music Legends Festival will begin on Friday, June 5 with Eric Burdon & The Animals. The founder and singer of the group will play some of the classics such as “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”, “The House of The Rising Sun” or “Good Times”. The artist from the UK will give way to the awarded Lucinda Williams, that will be playing from Louisiana the best rock, folk and country music. Another highlight of the day will be The Jayhawks. The band from the USA, very often compared to artists such as Neil Young or Gram Parsons, will let us enjoy the best country and roots music with their best songs. There are still some artists to be confirmed.
On Saturday 6 we will be able to dance with Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson, main songwriter and singer of the band. In addition, we will be able to enjoy the unique blue thanks to the performance of the American guitar player, Joanna Connor. Mikel Rentería and The Walk On Project Band will be representing the local scene while introducing their fourth album. The band has just released the last album, named “Vida”. This group from Bilbao has been 10 years playing and they came up due to the personal story of Mikel and his fight against neurodegenerative diseases. We will enjoy with them not only the 9 songs of the new album but songs that will let us recall artists like Tom Petty or Lou Reed. There are still some artists to be confirmed for the second day of the festival as well.
