Mad Cool Festival is one of Europe’s biggest rock music festivals, held each summer across three days in the Spanish capital.

Every year, Mad Cool Festival assembles a lineup that brings international superstars from an array of genres to Madrid, rock giants at the top of the bill, indie and pop favourites elsewhere and a selection of underground electronic music’s hottest acts among them.

Having consistently grown in scale, be it the performers, crowds, or production, Mad Cool Festival has quickly found its place among the continent’s elite, despite only hosting the first edition in 2016, offering well over 100,000 music fans the chance to soak up the Spanish sun and witness their musical heroes doing, what they do best.

Mad Cool Festival 2020 was postponed to 2021, due to the coronavirus outbreak. Tickets remain valid for the 2021 edition. You can read the festival’s statement here
