Mad Cool is pleased to announce that all, 45,000 tickets for its 2017 festival have sold out, just under three months before the event takes place. Headlined by Green Day, Foo Fighters and Kings Of Leon, the three – day festival takes place at Madrid’s Caja Magica tennis centre, between the 6th – 8th of July. Only in its second year, Mad Cool is already proving itself to be a major force on the European scene. The festival’s director Javi Arnaiz explains Mad Cool’s vision:
“Our goal is to create a festival with an eclectic line up where you can enjoy a global experience that differs from others. A festival that can have main international artists, future talents that are growing and emerging bands which are the upcoming generation. We believe in supporting the emergent scene, as this is vital for us in order to develop bands. Creating a festival that differs from the competition is already providing great results. Selling out with just under three months to spare shows that we are achieving what we planned to”.
Mad Cool can also confirm that they have reached an agreement with DIY magazine for them to become the festival’s official media partner for the next two years. Speaking about the partnership, DIY said:
“DIY were delighted to be invited to partner with Mad Cool in Spain. It’ll be somewhat of a family affair for us, thanks to an amazing line-up which features so many artists that have graced the cover of DIY – Foals, Savages, Wolf Alice, Alt-J and Warpaint to name but a few. We’re particularly excited about experiencing the music scene in Madrid, one of the tastemaker cities that’s currently defining the best music for a new generation”.
As well as the aforementioned headline acts; Mad Cool 2017 will also be welcoming the likes of Foals, M.I.A, alt-J, Ryan Adams and Belle & Sebastian to Madrid. The festival takes place across a total of five stages with four outside and one within the tennis centre itself. For the full festival lineup and more information head here
