Bilbao BBK Live has expanded its bill, with James Murphy, The View and more taking part.

Set in the historic Basque city, Bilbao BBK Live mixes a sense of tradition with a love of breaking talent. Returning this summer, organisers are working day and night to finish off an already striking bill.

The next wave of announcements have been made, with Bilbao BBK Live welcoming James Murphy. The one time LCD Soundsystem lynch-pin is now relishing life on his own, mixing a new-found flair for acting with his usual excellence behind the decks.

Returning to Europe, James Murphy will perform at Bilbao BBK Live this summer. The DFA mainstay will be joined by frequent collaborator Pat Mahoney, who has also been named on the line up.

Elsewhere, Scottish tykes The View are due to take part. The band will return to Spain after recently sealing off their new album 'Cheeky For A Reason'. Another dollop of loveable indie, the Dundee act have also confirmed a lengthy British tour before flying out to the Basque region for this one off show.

The announcements continue with appearances from Keane, We Are Augustines, Awolnation and The Black Belles.

Tickets are on sale now.

Bilbao BBK Live runs between July 12th - 14th.
