Fontaines D.C., Bicep and Blood Orange have joined headliners Kendrick Lamar, The Killers and Pet Shop Boys on the bill for this year’s Bilbao BBK Live.

Also helping to complete the line-up are the likes of Meute, Moses Sumney, Orville Peck, The Black Madonna and Eris Drew, all due in Bilbao between July 9th-11th.

Fontaines D.C.’s diary is taking shape with the release of their second studio album expected at some point this year, the follow-up to Dogrel – Live4ever’s #1 of 2019. “Are they punks? Are they indie? Are they crafty sons of a city being erased before them? Yes to all,” our review reads.

“Opener Big is anti-ambition, Chatten growling, “My childhood was small/But I’m gonna be big” like that was a pair of boots waiting to be filled. Effortlessly they transition into the playground, the knockabout strut of Sha Sha Sha taking on all comers while on Roy’s Tune, Chatten is almost singing and the melody is almost pretty, the way people sometimes hear something different to the person next to them, but this time the blanket covers everyone, like a mass hypnosis of good.”
