Mad Cool is one of Europe's biggest and best music festivals, held each summer across three days in the Spanish capital.
Every year, the organisers assemble a lineup that brings international superstars from an array of genres to Madrid – rock giants at the top of the bill, indie and pop favourites elsewhere, and a selection of underground electronic music's hottest acts among them.
Having consistently grown in scale – be it the performers, crowds, or production – the festival has quickly found its place among the continent's elite, despite only hosting the first edition in 2016, offering well over 100,000 music fans the chance to soak up the Spanish sun and witness their musical heroes doing what they do best.

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Taylor Swift, is a global superstar, multi GRAMMY winner and the youngest winner in history of the music industry's highest honour, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. Taylor is the only artist in music history to have an album (2010's Speak Now, 2012's RED and 2014's 1989) hit the 1 million plus first-week sales figure three times in the US. She is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 in the U.S. with three consecutive studio albums. She’s a household name whose insanely catchy yet deeply personal self-penned songs transcend music genres, and a savvy businesswoman who has built a childhood dream into an empire.

With an appetite for the gliding, glassy indie-pop of artists like Aurora and Lana Del Rey and the distorted menace of Tyler the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, Billie Eilish listens to music the way that most watch movies, entirely undefined by genre. This bleeds through into her own unique style of music, calling out lyrics with a mix of heartbreak and damaged indifference. Billie Eilish is officially the first artist born this millennium to achieve both a No. 1 album and single, and is now the third female solo artist in the 31-year history with multiple songs topping the Billboard Alternative Songs airplay chart (alongside Alanis Morrissette and Sinead O’Connor). 'Bad Guy' also hit #1 in the Pop Songs airplay chart after leading the Alternative Songs airplay. Her album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 album chart, has returned to the top spot two additional times within the same year, and was 2019’s best-selling album in North America. Billie Eilish graced the cover of Rolling Stone, V and ELLE, and has amassed more that 17-billion combined global streams as of late 2019.

Mumford & Sons
One of the most successful acts to come out of the first decade of the 21st century's English folk revival, London's Mumford & Sons' agreeable fusion of bluegrass, folk, country, and rock has found favour with audiences all around the world. Formed in 2007 by singer / guitarist / drummer Marcus Mumford, vocalist and banjo / Dobro player Winston Marshall, vocalist / keyboardist Ben Lovett, and vocalist / bassist Ted Dwane, the quartet bonded over their shared love of roots music - their moniker is meant to invoke the impression of an antiquated family business name. At that time the West London folk scene was becoming increasingly vibrant with the arrival of fellow new traditionalists like Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale and Johnny Flynn but Mumford & Sons have gone on to outsell and outshine them all with their success!

Kings Of Leon
Tennessean alt-rock group comprised of three brothers and a cousin. The Kings Of Leon take their titles very seriously, producing country-laden rock’n’roll with hints of blues and boogie-woogie. Brought up in the Deep South and having spent most of their childhood’s travelling, the Kings Of Leon (whose name comes from the brothers' father and grandfather) have a deep, drawling, rootsy sound and a suitable legacy to match.
