Bilbao BBK live

Stoke Travel Promo

Bilbao, Spain

6th - 10th July

Every year for 3 days, the BBK Bank in the Basque region of Spain becomes everyone’s BFF. This is because it sponsors the world’s ‘Best Medium-Sized Music Festival’, which brings around 60 acts from all over the world to a little park in Bilbao for one weekend of incredible artists.

Conveniently, there is also another festival happening nearby at around the same time that we’re kinda fond of. You may have heard of it – it’s called San Fermin, or more commonly it’s called Running of the Bulls. If there’s something we like here at Stoke Travel, it’s massive festivals! This year we’ll be giving you the chance to get creative and conjure a compound adventure from scratch. You choose what you want, when you want it and how…

So here’s the deal: We’ve got a nice little package with all the inclusions you need.

You can get your BBK ticket from us and to that you can add on private coach transport to and from the festival and camping gear (tent, mattress and sleeping bag) so you’re all sorted for your trip.

Want a little music & surfing… or even chasing some bulls?

If you want to add on some surfing before or after, we have our surf camp in San Sebastian area running at the same time and if you want to continue the madness, you can come to our Bulls camp afterwards for running from some stampeding bulls. At our campsite, you can you choose your add-ons : do you want to drink without limits for 10€ a day? Would you like a tent all to yourself just in case you happen to find love at the music festival or in the waves or under the hoofs of a bull? Et voila! You have a tailor-made adventure full of fun and just seeping with culture.

PRICE: 300€/425AU$/£225/335US$ FOR 5 NIGHTS

  • Bilbao, Spain

    Pais Vasco, Pays Basque, the Basque Country. The elbow of the French and Spanish Atlantic coastline is an area filled with culture and natural beauty. Home to Europe’s oldest language, it’s most sturdy people, and some of the most incredible vistas your eyes have ever had the pleasure of taking in.

    Bilbao is the capital of the Basque Country and has loads of cool, arsty, cultural places like the Gugenheim Museum. The BBK Live is held on Kobetamendi which means Mount Cobeta and is the city’s largest park.

Our Exclusive area is complete with kitchen, chill out area, hammocks, DJ booth & stage and Stoke’s infamous entertainment and Crew. Within the campsite grounds there’s also a swimming pool, wifi, laundry and other facilities.

    Zarautz Beach Camp

    If you would like a little surf and turf, head to our Beach Camp at Zarautz – an hour away from Pamplona and 20 mins from the famous San Sebastian. We have a beautiful setup there on a hill overlooking the bay of Zarautz and we are offering transfers to the camp for 15€. So if you want to fit in some surfing before or after the bulls, let us know and we’ll book you in!

  • Hola! Chuck your thoughts and questions in the Ask a Question Tab and we’ll put up a helpful answer here…

    Are the shuttles to and from the Bulls included in the price?
    The camp is only 10 minutes from town, so the campsite is providing shuttles into the bull run for 5€ return. This is not included in the price, but we will send guides in with you to make sure get the best spot in the run or the stadium. The buses will be running frequently all day.

    Do you provide transport to Zarautz for the beach camp?
    Yes, we are doing buses to the beach camp if you would like to stay there for a few days. The cost is 15€ one way for the transfer. You can add this to your booking or book it at the Guru tent.

    What is the breakfast like?
    Brekkie varies according to our chefs’ whims. It usually involves egg and bacon in some form. Pancakes, french toast, poached, fried, scrambled…..Yum!

    It says on the website that it is a twin tent. Can it fit two people?
    Yes, the twin tents are two-person tents. We have two-person tents and 8 person teepees. If you are a group of three, one of you will be tented with a new friend of the same sex. You get allocated your tent on arrival so you can make tent requests then. We also have an option to have a private tent for a small additional fee – just in case you don’t want to share…. or if you want leave space for the hottie you’re going to meet at our campsite….. just saying…

    And what amenities are offered at the camp site?
    The campsite is awesome! It is right near Pamplona but still in nature, there is a cafe/restaurant, a little shop, hot showers, laundry area, parking, drinkable water, wifi, a swimming pool and our own Stoke chill zone.

    Are there lockers where we can put our passports or other important items?
    The campsite has lockers, and we also have a giant container which gets locked every night and we can put small valuables in there during the festival and when we’re away from the campsite.

    2 of us are vegans, do you cater for this?
    We cater for vegetarians, so we can always just remove the animal-products and stuff you to the brim with fruits and veggies and starches…..whatever we do, we’ll make a plan for you.
