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.

You'll miss a few acts, but headliners come on around 11/12 so you should be fine, and then all the dancey stuff goes on until 6/7am https://clashfinder.com/s/bbklive2018

Ta muchly :)

It's not getting the attention it deserves but it seems like a cracking lineup to me this year. And I love the look of the site and  just the right size in terms of audience numbers.

The festival is a beaut. The location is unique and the crowd have been pretty great both times I've been.

Tickets sorted! Bit of a hassle getting there since there are only 2 departures per week to Bilbao from Sweden and theyre really expensive, guess its train or domestic flights from Barcelona or Madrid.

I got a return bus ticket from Madrid -> Bilbao from the BBK website in 2018, worked out fine (though left a little late). But yeah there's trains & planes too. Did you look at flying to London/another Euro city and then Bilbao? Might work out cheaper/easier.

Thanks for the advice! 70 gbp both ways is possible from London, might be an alternative. Either way it will be 10h+ hours to get there instead of 3,5 hours with flight directly to Bilbao from Stockholm..

BBK is a scummy ticket touting festival

Yeah I saw you mention this before. Have they sold out which would allow touts to resell at high prices in recent years. 

 

How does BBKs tout model operate? Thanks

I paid €6 fees for a €125 ticket. Scum they may be, but not many other ticket sites offering fees that low (aside from Dice I guess)...

It's a reference to their use of Seatwave as a ticketing partner who are not price gouging at Bilbao BBK but are more generally a complicit part of the ticket touting problem.

If what I've been told is true, indieheads are gonna be very happy with this lineup. The front men of your fav bands will be there in some form.

The Good, the Bad & the Queens + The Voidz? :D

Ya. Damon, Julian & Thom  Maybe a 4th too. 

Nothing announced last night anyway. They told me on facebook "new names soon". I guess Basoa (the dance stage) will come next.

I was told the reason the announcement in Dec was delayed a few days was because they were trying to sign X, but X didn't appear on the poster so I'm not sure if X will come or not. Not the 2 you mentioned, can't think of a clue that's not obvious but there's not many other options left ;) 

Raconteurs could show up (there seems to be at least 1 headliner missing hey), but haven't heard anything about them.
