> 15 new artists have been added up to Mad Cool Festival 2018’s lineup being headlined by the genuine Jack White.
> Six months prior to its celebration, Mad Cool’s third edition has already sold out its 3 day ticket.
We would like to begin 2018 by giving thanks to all the people who have put their trust in Mad Cool Festival. You’ve helped us managed to sell out all the passes six months before the start of 2018 edition.

We know that this has been possible thanks to a line up in which there has been a succession of new and consolidated artists whose common denominator is authenticity. In this new round of confirmations the presence of Jack White stands out, former leader and founder of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, will return to Spain for the first time since 2012. White will present his new album Boarding House Reach at Mad Cool and will do occupying one of the two main slots reserved for Friday July 13th.


Richie Hawtin Close will be one of the artists that will be part of the electronic music show of the 2018’s edition. After more than a career of 20 years, the Canadian DJ and producer is one of the greatest idols in the history of Techno. But there’s more: we will also have the avant-garde minimalism of Daniel Avery and the highly successful duo Odesza.


Among the new confirmations stands out the unmistakable Eels. Mark Oliver Everett (also known as Mr. E) has become a cult artist thanks to his personal vision of the world which he has reflected in his albums and his books.

Everett will arrive in Mad Cool 2018 with The Deconstruction : a new LP that puts an end to the artist long four year break.

The know-how from Mad Cool 2018‘s bands it is also shared between the successful British singer and composer James Bay, the mature soul of Leon Bridges and the psychedelic flings of Kevin Morby.


Wolf Alice, the band led by Ellie Rowsell, will be in Mad Cool 2018. After cancelling their show in last edition, the quartet returns to Madrid with an extra dose of experience, after the release of their latest LP Visions of a Life (2017).

Also The Big Moon, a British Rock trio that’s causing a sensation in her country thanks to updating the grunge sounds as well as Britpop, is another female fronted band that will shine bright in this new edition.


You could say that the place reserved for the urban sounds is another of the great characteristics of Mad Cool 2018  line up. Among the new additions the multicultural trio from Edinburgh Young Fathers and the American rapper blackbear will be performing in this festival’s edition, being this the first time in our country for the latter.


Spanish bands Toundra, Rufus, T. Firefly and Biznaga will be part of Mad Cool 2018‘s lineup, delighting the audience thanks to being some of the bands that represent best the genres in which they play: post-rock, psychedelic rock and punk rock respectively. Both Rufus, T. Firefly and Biznaga have been recognized by the Spanish Music Journalist Society (PAM) as finalist for the third edition of the “Premio Ruido”, an award that recognizes the best Spanish album released in 2017.

With these new 15 confirmations Mad Cool Festival 2018 adds a total of 75 artists to its lineup so far. We remind you that the 3 day tickets are already sold out, but you can still buy 1 day tickets and VIP tickets by clicking here
