Fellow indie rockers Foals as headliners join the Canadians at Spain’s Bilbao BBK Festival. The Bilbao festival, taking place from July 7th-9th, will also play host to acts including Pixies, M83, New Order, Hot Chip, Years & Years and Wolf Alice.
They will also be playing at Lisbon’s NOS Alive on the same weekend, alongside Radiohead for the festival’s 10th anniversary.
Arcade Fire will be headlining the Sunday night after M83 and Jose Gonzalez take to the stage. The rest of the weekend will see The Chemical Brothers, The 1975 and Hot Chip take to the stage also.
As of last September the group have been recording for a new album, which is reportedly “30 percent complete”. These will be the only two European festivals Arcade Fire will play this summer.
