Mad Cool Festival 2018 Lineup

Madrid’s Mad Cool Festival already had a pretty stacked lineup, especially if you’re a fan of rock, and even more so if you’re a fan of alt-rock greats from the ’90s. Anchored by heavyweights like Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, and Queens Of The Stone Age, the fest also boasted some more unique headliners like Massive Attack and Depeche Mode. In case you were looking for an excuse to go to Spain, that’s the benefit of European festivals vs. American ones in any given year, but especially when staring down America’s anemic 2018 slate thus far.

Today, the festival added even more names to the bill. Announcing another 15 artists, Mad Cool revealed that Jack White would be the big headliner on the festival’s second night. The rest of the bill has exciting additions like cult heroes Eels and art-rap group Young Fathers, and is further rounded out with Richie Hawtin, Wolf Alice, Kevin Morby, Leon Bridges, James Bay, Daniel Avery, Odesza, the Big Moon, and Spanish bands like Toundra, Rufus T. Firefly, and Biznaga. Check out the full lineup so far below.
