Cardi B, Kings of Leon, The War On Drugs, Anderson .Paak, HAIM and 22 more to join Mad Cool 2021


Hello everyone,

Now more than ever, from Mad Cool Festival we would like to show our support to Madrid and contribute with our enthusiasm and excitement; thanks to the encouraging news we have for 2021, we start to see the end of the tunnel. We announce 27 new names. If we stay together, Madrid will soon be again a leading spot for music and culture in 2021, as it has been during the past years. We all are Madrid!

Our intention was to announce Artists at the end of August, however, the new Covid wave delayed everything. The international agencies were forced to postpone new commitments until now that we have a clearer vision of next year’s situation.

Today we announce 27 new names that shape our line-up for Mad Cool 2021. We have no doubt that it will be the most complete and impressive line-up so far.

We will soon announce the remaining 2 headliners for Thursday & Friday as well as 5 more bands plus the 6 winners of the Mad Cool Talent competition. 13 names in total that will finalize the line-up for this long-awaited edition.

We want to inform that we will open the Mad Cool Talent competition soon. We started this platform to support the up-and-coming bands and brand new talent so we can, in the future, watch them perform at one of our big stages. This is one of our main goals as part of the music ecosystem, without a solid musical and cultural movement, we cannot grow as an industry nor a society.

Due to a change in their touring plans, Mumford & Sons and London Grammar won’t be part of the line-up next Summer and will be replaced by Kings of Leon and The War On Drugs.

On another matter, after being the only festival with the refund process available for 5 months, it will end next Tuesday December 1st at 23:59. Later on we will announce the remaining headliners for Thursday and Friday as well as few more Acts that will finalize our line-up. We are positive that you will be excited about them. Ticket prices will remain the same until we announce the 2 headliners left or until any ticket type sells out.

We would also like to take this opportunity to let you know that 1,178 new 4 day tickets will go on sale starting now. We have put a limited amount of 4 day tickets on sale, equivalent to the number of 4 day tickets that have been refunded. We received a lot of requests from you so we decided to enable this option. The change or upgrade to one of these 4 day tickets is guaranteed, within the period allowed, for all of you who had already bought your tickets regardless of the refunded allotment.

As we have informed before, in case the authorities should not allow the Festival to happen, at Mad Cool we will always follow the refund policies specified by the authorities in the same manner we’ve been doing up until now.

We want to thank you all for being there. Without you the festival couldn’t be possible. Thanks!!

We would also like to thank our city council as well as Madrid local government, sponsors and collaborators that are helping us to “cross the desert”.

Take care of the people around you and yourselves and always follow the recommendations of the authorities.

Music is what give us a reason to live, what unites people and help us put our differences apart. Mad Cool 2021 is getting closer!!
