Bilbao BBK Live adds Phoenix, Fever Ray, Jamie xx, Duki, M83, Röyksopp and IDLES to the 2023 lineup
HAAi, Amaia, Dry Cleaning, Anz, Sherelle, GAZZI, and more artists also join this second round of festival confirmations
The sixteenth edition of the festival will be held on July 6, 7, and 8, 2023 at Kobetamendi
In this second batch of confirmations, the visual identity of the festival continues to star the snapshots of Supereuskadi, the photographic essay of the artist Vicente Paredes, this time with the legend of Tximistarri as the protagonist
Tximistarri; basque word composed of Tximista=Bold and Harri=Stone
The legend continues. The artists of the next edition of Bilbao BBK Live 2023, to be held next July 6, 7, and 8 in Kobetamendi continue to be revealed. And in the same way, the images that will accompany the graphic image of this sixteenth edition of the festival are being unveiled. As artists of the stature of Arctic Monkeys, Florence + The Machine, The Chemical Brothers, and The Blaze already head the lineup, a new batch of artists are arriving in early-Christmas-gift form to complete the already formidable 2023 list.
The emblematic French pop of Phoenix; the eclecticism of the former half of The Knife with his solo project Fever Ray; the big brother of Argentine trap Duki; the instrumental and electronic M83; the ethical and political punk rock of IDLES; the brilliant Nordic electronica of Röyksopp; and the digger and member of The xx Jamie xx headline this second round of artists. Two bastions of post-punk in its place of origin join the line-up: Dry Cleaning from London and Ireland’s The Murder Capital. The national talent is represented by the multifaceted and angelic voice of Amaia; the Montgrí guitars of Cala Vento; and the wildest punk energy of La Élite. While the electronic cast of Basoa expands with the addition of names like Anz, Avalon Emerson, HAAi, Sherelle, GAZZI, and John Talabot.
At Bilbao BBK Live art in all its forms is as fundamental as its poster—and we are coming from an image as powerful as that of los harrijasotzailes. Now the poster stars the legend of Tximistarri, this being the fourth image that reveals the festival as part of the art-music alliance between artist Vicente Paredes and Bilbao BBK Live, with the common goal of showing the identity and idiosyncrasy of Euskadi.
The Organization of the festival, always committed to the care of natural areas, will allocate €3 from each pass sold to the reforestation of the area affected by the fires in the town of Balmaseda, in Enkarterri, the lungs of Bizkaia.
