Madrid’s premium music festival, Mad Cool, put their tickets on sale this weekend, with potentially the best line-up for 2020.
Words by Jack Squibb
For the past month, Mad Cool have been revealing day-by-day, who’ll be heading to the Spanish capital in July. Organisers so far have confirmed that The Killers, Foals, Wolf Alice, Kings of Leon and Faith No More are all set to play at the fifth instalment.
Along with those heavyweight names, there’s also Billie Eilish, Anderson Paak, Alt-J, Twenty One Pilots and so many more stellar acts. The festival is covering all grounds, with something for everyone booked, having nailed down Four Tet, Khalid, Rüfüs Du Sol, Taylor Swift and Sigrid to name a few from a range of genres.
While it’s early days with a lot of other festivals waiting to reveal their first wave of acts, Mad Cool are making a strong claim for best line-up of 2020.
Earlier this year, Mad Cool flexed their booking muscles by bringing the likes of The National, The Chemical Brothers, Prophets of Rage, Lewis Capaldi, The Cure and Smashing Pumpkins to the Spanish capital. Sticking to the trend of having a line-up that’s all thriller and no filler, 2020 looks to be even better.
With a list of huge names all being hoarded into the one place, you’d expect a four-day ticket to cost a few hundred euro. However, the first 15,000 people can grab their ticket for just €159.00.
Tickets go on sale on Sunday 1st December at 11 AM (GMT), which when you think about it could make for the perfect Christmas gift.

Tickets are available from the Mad Cool website, from 11 AM (GMT).
