Madrid's new megastar

Mad Cool Festival is a huge rock, pop and alternative music festival in Madrid. Despite only hosting the first edition in 2016, the festival is already a major player in Europe's vibrant scene.

In that time, the festival has already brought bona fide rock megastars to the Spanish capital across two stellar years, from The Who and Neil Young at the first edition to Foo Fighters, Green Day and Kings of Leon last time out. And in 2018, Queens of the Stone Age and Depeche Mode are among those adding their names to that list.

Taking place this year in a brand new location after two incredible years in the Caja Magica, the three day party runs from the early evening until the early hours with something on the lineup for all manner of music fans.
