Pixies, first headline of the Bilbao BBK Live 2016

Pixies, one of the most influential American and European indie rock bands , is the first confirmed headline for the XI edition of the Bilbao BBK Live Festival 2016, to be held on July 7, 8 and 9 in Kobetamendi. The performance will be the only that this historic Boston band will offer in the state next year.

The foursome are now back on stage with a new album (Indie City, 2014), since the release of their previous one in 1991. Furthermore, it’s been 24 years the American band don’t play in the Basque Country either (last time they played Donosti’s Anoeta stadium in the same year).

Following a brief split in 1993, Pixies reapperead ten years afterwards and now play with Argentinian bassist Paz Lenchantin.

The band, whose albums are among the 500s Most Influential Works of all times (according to Rolling Stone magazine), is also responsible for creating most of the indie music from the 90s and inspiring bands such as Nirvana, Radiohead or The Strokes.

Tickets for next years’ festival edition are now on sale. Get them here:
