This year you don't have to go far from the festival to enjoy three days of top-notch music. He Mad Cool from Madrid It has an ambitious goal: to become the music festival No. 1 and for this he has assembled a very complete ideal poster with bands of success of yesterday and today. These are the reasons why you should not miss the best festival of the moment.
1) Your awesome poster
It is the peninsula festival with the widest, most powerful and most eclectic poster in 2018 (by win), from great classics like Pearl Jam, Depeche Mode to artists that break everything today, like Dua Lipa.
2) Because it satisfies all tastes
Even those of your friend who only listens mainstream.
- Contemporary / grunge rock: poster led by Pearl Jam, in one of his only 2 concerts in Spain (2 days before, they play in BCN). Well accompanied by cult bands like Alice in Chains or Queens of the Stonage, and other contemporaries such as the Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand or Jet.
Phycodelic / Alternative Pop with references like Tame Impala, Kasabian, Snow Patrol, MGMT, Eels,…
One man bands with Jack Johnson, Ben Howard, Iván Ferreiro, ...
New wave: Future Islands, Kaleo, Massive Attack, Dua Lipa, ...
Electro / Dance / Disco: Justice, Bloody Beetroots, Richie Hawtin, Underworld, Wolf Alice, Paul Kalkbrenner ...
3) The location
It is carried out in IFEMA, ample space with part of the outdoor enclosure, and part under roof to avoid summer showers. Very close to Madrid and with access via metro via line 8 (The City Council also assured that it would strengthen the line with views of the MadCool), or taxi / bus (without pawning the gold teeth), nothing to do with other festivals located in middle of nowhere and with very poor access by public transport.
4) It is the place to be
It is the reference event in the capital in July, and (BBK Live through) on the peninsula at the musical level. 100,000 people will come and the resale is already burning (there are no bonuses left for 3 days, and there are already few tickets for some dates)
5) Because we really want to see Dua Lipa in concert
The new pop queen not only makes some wonderfully cools videos, but is a bomb on stage, as she demonstrated acting in the Champions League Final.
6) Because its enclosure aims to leave images as iconic as those of Coachella
Do you sound the noria? Well, that. It is essential to take a picture with her. Sure we'll see too the latest fashion trends like facial glasses, lots of fringes, crop tops, hats, and all the usual fashion look of music festivals.
7) For your support of other artistic disciplines
In its third edition, the Mad Cool Festival He intends to be crowned as the king of the peninsula festivals, and a reference throughout Europe. But not only is there room for music, but they want to support emerging talent with photography and illustration contests, through the Mad Cool Gallery.
