Madrid’s Mad Cool Festival has announced over 20 new names for its 2021 line-up, including Haim, Cardi B, Sylvan Esso and Phoebe Bridgers.
The new names follow the festival’s initial line-up announcement in July, led by The Killers, Foals, Twenty One Pilots, Mumford & Sons and more.
Other new names set to play next year’s edition of the festival, which will be held between July 7 and 10, include Kings of Leon, Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals, Peggy Gou, The War On Drugs, Editors and more. Further big names in the first announcement included Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pixies, Deftones and Royal Blood.
The first announcement for Mad Cool 2021 came on July 8, which marked what would’ve been the start of Mad Cool Festival 2020, which was cancelled back in May due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Issuing a statement at that time, the festival’s organisers wrote: “Today, we have to tell you in all honesty, that the festival won’t happen on the current dates.
“During all these weeks, and considering the course of events, we have been working on different scenarios. The most real and practical one is to move the festival to 2021, same dates.”
“However, we will be back next year with a new edition that we hope exceeds your expectations. Your loyalty demands that we do not disappoint you,” they wrote.
