Attend a legendary festival in the making
After much planning, the festival first came to fruition in 2015. The goal? To create a space where music, food, art, and culture can coexist, thrive, and bring joy to the masses. The festival has been held in more than one venue over the years – the first two editions were held at the Magic Box in Madrid. But after two years of brilliant success, the small venue was overflowing, and so the festival had to be uprooted. The Espacio Mad Cool was born in Valdebebas–Ifema; with a surface area of 100,000 square metres, it has capacity for 80,000 people. Since its first edition, which attracted more than 100,000 visitors, the festival has become one of the most important musical experiences in Spain. Over 150 artists have played its stages, including rock icons, contemporary pop heroes, and electronic newcomers – variety and notoriety is the goal. Fan favourites over the years have included Iggy Pop, Bastille, Neil Young, Die Antwoord, Band of Horses, Dua Lipa, and many more. No matter what your favourite genre of music is, everyone will find an act (or five) that they can get excited about. And outside the festival grounds, Madrid awaits you. The Madrid City Council, through Madrid Destino and its tourism department, has sponsored the event year after year, and encourages festivalgoers to explore the city and embrace its multiple cultural and historical delights.
