    CamperContact lists only a couple of aires close to the centre, one tiny and one quite big. It may just be possible to reserve a spot at the latter but they don't seem to have a website but the tourist office might be able to help: http://www.bilbaoturismo.net/BilbaoTurismo/en/autocaravaning

    But July, music festival? It could be busy but worth contacting the festival as there might be a temporary site opened somewhere.

    Alternatively I guess you could base yourself further out and use the narrow gauge RENFE train which runs along the north coast. How's your Spanish? http://www.renfe.com :)

    Here are details of a spot we stayed at three years ago:

    We had details of an aire just outside the city but they wanted 16 euros a night. It was next to a big free public car park so we decided to wild it for a couple of days in the car park along with a few other vans (mostly German).
    The day we left it looked like they were closing the aire - office boarded up, gates padlocked. I'm not surprised at the price they were charging.
    The Police came by a couple of times but didn't seem bothered.
    There are no facilities so make sure you arrive with a full water tank and empty toilet cassette!
    The car park is actually in a great place on top of a hill overlooking the city. The No58 bus passes by which will take you into the city - you want the bus stop on the opposite side of the road to the car park ie travelling to right to left as you look at the city. It's about 30 minutes to the nearest point to the Guggenheim. Basically you get off the bus when you cross the river and walk about a mile along the river bank to the museum. It's a pleasant walk.
