As 2019 draws closer, fans both in North America and abroad continue to enjoy the holiday season and early gift of festival lineup announcements for next spring and summer. One of the latest major music events to share their impressive 2019 lineup would be Spain’s Mad Cool Festival, which is scheduled to return to Madrid July 11-13 next summer with headlining performances by Bon Iver, The Cure and The National.
The three day event will return to its home at Valdebebas-Ifema near the Spanish capital for its fourth year in 2019, and looks to provide its attendees with a weekend of non-stop music as its done since 2016. Some of the notable big-font names who appear on the event’s totally loaded 2019 poster seen below include Vampire Weekend, Smashing Pumpkins, The 1975, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and 2018 breakout rockers Greta Van Fleet and Tash Sultana. Even the middle of the event poster would make most competing festivals jealous, with mid-level artists ranging from The Hives, the return of Wolfmother, Bonobo (DJ set) and Jorja Smith.
According to NME, the festival will be looking to make some notable changes to its on-site production plans, as well as helping to get attendees to and from the event each day and night. Event producers plan on removing designated VIP areas from being right front of all their six total stages, as that seemed to be an issue in 2018. The festival will also be downsizing the number of tickets sold on each day of the event, which will be decreased by 5,000 people per day. The event will also be providing all ticket-holders with free transport back to Madrid from the venue at Valdebebas, free of charge from 1:30 a.m. until 5:30 a.m. That’s awfully mad cool of them.
