In its quest to promote and encourage culture in Bizkaia, BBK opened the doors of the Sala BBK in 2010. The Sala BBK, located in Bilbao, is a space open to the dissemination of culture and all kinds of social and solidarity events that aim to supplement the cultural programme that the city offers.
Sala BBK programme

The Sala BBK programme in Bilbao has a wide-ranging, varied offer that includes the BBK seasons of Fado, Flamenco, Jazz, Music Legends and Musiketan, among others. Each year the hall also hosts film festivals, dance, activities intended for families, music and theatre.

New features in the Sala BBK programme

Since 2010 the Sala BBK in Bilbao has managed to consolidate regular top-quality shows in the cultural programme in Vizcaya. In this sense, in 2019 new seasons have been created to continue to encourage and promote culture with top-quality proposals that are accessible to all:

  • “Emakumeok!”: a musical season featuring international female artists that aims to encourage top-quality music in various styles and formats, while raising awareness and boosting equal opportunities between men and women. In the first series of performances we were able to enjoy concerts by: Sarah McKenzie, Jacqui McShee’s Pentangle, Rosana, Luz Casal and Lizz Wright
  • “Classic Express”: express 30-minute concerts that offer essential pieces of classical music at a reduced price. A glass of vermouth or a beer comes with the ticket with the aim of encouraging access for people who enjoy shopping or going out for a drink in the city
  • “Kandelen Artean”: in this series of concerts, the Sala BBK turns into a live music club where by candlelight with a drink you can enjoy songs by Basque bands that are well-known to the public with an intimate accessible feel.
