Mad Cool Festival 2018, which will be held next 12, 13 and 14 July, has the support of the City Council and the Community of Madrid to make both the arrival at the site and the return home for the attendees occur in the most comfortable way possible.
Metro Line 8 will remain open all night during the three days of the festival. The section between the Feria de Madrid and Nuevos Ministerios stations will be enabled, without intermediate stops. In addition, the frequency of trains will be five minutes. We recommend all festival attendees to purchase their transport card in advance at any station in the Metro de Madrid network.
We are also pleased to confirm the extension of the bus service, which will include two different routes. These two routes will begin the service at 2:00am from the festival grounds: one will go directly to Plaza de Colón and the other one to Plaza de Castilla. You are still in time to reserve your ticket by following this link. Tickets can also be purchased at the ticket office and at the Info Point within the festival.
Espacio Mad Cool has two entrances: one on the Avenida de Alejandro de la Sota and another one through the IFEMA exhibition center, specially enabled for the festival. (check the map below)
