About
2016 marks the 10th anniversary of this Basque Country music festival. It continues Bilbao's transformation from grimy northern industrial city to sexy 21st century metropolis. The parallels with the UK's Manchester are obvious.more

First the good things. The festival was amazing and everything worked well in the festival area. Good line-up, various food and enough toilets. The festival area itself was well organised, but the camping area was horrible. We took the ”glamping”-tent package for four people. The...More

There's a lot of hype about this festival now and this was my first BBK experience which was good but I was expecting better. The music was great, not the best line-up this year, but that varies. The site was okay but it did get...More

Situated in the hills of Bilbao, this festival offers great music, a view to die for and amazing athmosphere. Clean toilets, and everything worked perfectly, even the moneyfree wristbands.

Awesome festival but we are forced to use "cashless wristbands" to make purchases. We load money on this wristband to buy food, beer, etc and whatever isn't used we are told to request a refund during 2 specific wks within July. I did so and...More
