Depeche Mode first headliners for Bilbao BBK Live

The eighth edition of Bilbao BBK Live takes place from 11-13 July 2013, and New Wave trio Depeche Mode have been unveiled as the festival’s first headliner.

Depeche Mode to headline Bilbao BBK Live

Confirming the news at a press conference in Paris, the band announced their appearance in Bilbao will be the only Spanish festival on their 34 date European tour.

Formed in the early 80s, Depeche Mode are one of the most influential bands of their generation, blazing a trail for electronic rock and influencing artists across the musical spectrum, from Linkin Park and the Killers to Ricardo Villalobos and Derrick May. Q Magazine called the band “the most popular electronic band the world has ever known”, and included them in their list of 50 Bands That Changed The World in 2012.

The New Wave giants, who are responsible for landmark anthems such as Personal Jesus and Just Can’t Get Enough, are currently working on their as-yet-unnamed 13th studio album - their first since 2009’s Sounds of the Universe – which will be released in April 2013.

Tickets for Bilbao BBK Live, which last year featured acts such as Radiohead and The Cure, go on sale on 6 November. Earlybird prices start at €85 plus booking fee for a three-day festival ticket including camping (subject to availability).
