The highlight of a summer vacation in Bilbao has to be the Bilbao Live Festival. Since 2006 Bilbao has been hosting a hefty line-up of rock and pop music names every summer, such as Metallica, Iron Maiden, Red Hot Chili Peppers, My Chemical Romance, New York Dolls, and many more. If you are into music or just enjoy a good festival consider planning your Bilbao vacation around the first and second week of July to catch this fantastic festival.
Visit during the Month of August and you can enjoy the city's biggest fiesta. Beginning the first Saturday after August 15th and lasting for nine days, Semana Granda is a city-wide party filled with music, street theatre, firework displays, and lots of fun events for the whole family. Get around to the best parties during Semana Grande in your Bilbao rental car.
If you don't happen to catch the Bilbao Live Festival, there are plenty of open air concerts held throughout the summer at Bilbao's Kiosko del Arenal. Located across from Plaza Arriaga, this is the perfect place to enjoy some time outside when the weather is nice.
