Final acts added to the Mad Cool 2024 line up!

The Killers headline Mad Cool Festival 2024

Undeniably one of the greatest festival acts out there with more hits than you can shake a stick at, THE KILLERS join as headliners on the Saturday lineup. Led by charismatic frontman Brandon Flowers, the band and friend of the festival have proven their worth with every release since their birth at the turn of the millennium.

Italian glam rock phenomenon MÅNESKIN will perform on Friday night, ready to prove why they are being hailed as one of the most exciting and wild live acts of the moment.

Mad Cool embraces the biggest new sounds and musical innovators. On Friday, audiences can enjoy the chart-topping fusion of afrobeat, trap and pop from REMA, whose hit single “Calm Down” has elevated Nigerian music to new heights. On the same day, ALEC BENJAMIN, the young American pop composer who burst onto the scene with “Let me down slowly,” will perform a special set. On Saturday, TYLA will take the stage with her captivating contemporary R&B; her recent single “Water” became a viral phenomenon and set her up as one of the most exciting new voices. Wednesday’s entertainment is guaranteed with the performance of SEXYY RED. Backed by collaborations with artists like Drake, SZA and Nicki Minaj, and with a bold and humorous output, her voice has become one of the most prominent in American female rap.

When it comes to taking the audience to other worlds – even past eras – it is essential to mention LORD HURON, who create evocative and nostalgic songs. Warm and masterfully executed, the Californian indie folk band will be a perfect fit on Saturday.

The emerging wave of guitar bands will have its say at Mad Cool with performances by bands like PICTURE PARLOUR, SEA GIRLS, the high-voltage rock of DEAD POSEY, and the enigmatic post-punkers BAR ITALIA.

The vibrant Madrid music scene will be represented by the 2000s guitar rock of the Getafe-based band NADYE, and the intimate post-punk of DEPRESIÓN SONORA, a project born in the Vallecas neighborhood that has generated great expectations beyond Spanish borders.

For electronic music enthusiasts, Mad Cool promises to reach its peak with the show of 2MANYDJS dj set, an institution in the genre, and with some of the most exciting names of the present like NIA ARCHIVES, CLAUDIA LEÓN and ANDRES CAMPO.

Additionally, in this new edition, Mad Cool Festival joins The Spanish Wave, presenting three exclusive slots in partnership with different international export offices.
