A European Giant
Date: 11-13 July 2019
Arguably the newest festival to be considered among Europe’s absolute elite, Mad Cool is a huge rock, indie and electronic music festival that takes place in the Spanish capital. Now preparing for only its fourth edition, the three day festival has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, attracting crowds of 80,000 fans per day.
Mad Cool’s biggest draw is without doubt the huge lineup that they offer each year, featuring giants from across the globe. But combine that with the festival’s investment in sound quality, the almost guaranteed summer sun, and the opportunity to explore Madrid afforded by the late start to the music each day, and there’s even more going for it than the acts on the bill.
The National are the first act confirmed for 2019. Pearl Jam, Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Jack White, Depeche Mode, Tame Impala and more played the last edition.
