It's a great start. Strokes, Idles, Shame, Hot Chip and Suede are 5 of my favourite bands.

The rest...not so much.

its pretty good, tempting me more than any other festival so far, but again not wowing me.

 

Plus as I am doing Download with my mates, I need a lineup that will tempt my GF...this wont do it.

 

Will wait for Lowlands and Pukkelpop now before making the final decision

With five albums to their name and a meteoric career, The Strokes will set foot on Bilbao BBK Live for the first time for an exclusive performance in the Iberian Peninsula, where they will run through the songs that have earned them recognition as one of the major 21st century bands.

Shame AND Slaves AND Idles AND Sleaford Mods is good if you like that type of thing hey.

Sadly, I don't.

Aside from that, some good stuff on there though, with more to come. I'm happy.

Looking to go Bilbao anyone know what getting the pre-pitched tents are like? Is it worthwhile? or is it better staying in a hostel or something

It was in the Strokes bio on BBK’s website, but they removed the ‘exclusive’ bit. So you can count on at least one other show in Spain or Portugal.

Perhaps the fact they didn’t update it to ‘Spanish exclusive’ indicates there’s at least one more in Spain?

Hehe, that was my exact reaction as well.

Ticket prices go up at the rather unusual time of 9pm on Jan 7th, which is midday Compton time ;) #damn.

If not Kendrick, could be linked to an artist announcement, otherwise why 9pm?

There's a good BA flight from London but it lands at 19.40 on the first day

Can anyone advise how long it would take to get from the airport to being inside watching bands? Seems like a schlep. Thanks.

20 min bus to city centre but may have to wait 10 mins to catch it. 15 min bus to festival site from near where the airport bus would drop you. Last year queues for this bus were mad on the first day, at least an hour, but they sorted it by day 2 so maybe won't happen again. Realistically an hour is possible if things go your way.

Very helpful! Sounds like there’s no queue to get wristbands on day 1 which makes a nice change.
