The xx bring Night + Day to Bilbao BBK Live 2018

One of this year’s headline acts, The xx will bring their Night + Day concept to Bilbao during the festival, curating a week of music and cultural activities.

Plus there’s a host of free music events popping up at some of the city’s many cultural hotspots. With over 50 acts set to perform, it’s yet another reason to visit Bilbao BBK Live this summer.


Having announced My Bloody Valentine, Gorillaz, The xx, Florence & The Machine and Childish Gambino to name just a few, Bilbao BBK Live descends from the green pastures of Kobetamendi to bring over 50 bands and cultural activities to the city streets.

Curated by The xx, Night + Day is a festival within a festival that celebrates the band’s favourite places around the world, through unique collaborations with local artists and communities. From 6 to 11 July, the city will be host to a performance by Jamie xx & more, a magical evening featuring big figures from the world of electronica on two stages outside the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. The full Night + Day programme will be revealed soon.

As in earlier years Bilbao BBK Live Bereziak brings the festival to the heart of the city. This year, it has added two new urban stages, one at Torres Isozaki, and outside the San Mamés stadium. The entire city will be able enjoy live music on 12, 13 and 14 July, with free performances by D’Valentina, Gengahr, Grises, Joe Crepúsculo, Meute, Neuman, Parquet Courts, Polock, Rural Zombies, Triángulo De Amor Bizarro, Venturi, Yawnes and more.
