Mad Cool was born with the intention of combining different artistic and cultural expressions in one space, making the best use of the tourist season in the Spanish capital. From the beginning, it had a great reception among people from all around the world, and today it is already comparable to the great Primavera Sound of Barcelona, the  FIB Benicasim or the Bilbao BBK Live.

Including the two editions prior to this year, it has gathered almost 150 artists from all around the world. These celebrities represent the world of contemporary rock and pop and the best of electronic music. Also, groups and solo singers that represent the great figures of the national and international music future attend.

On the other hand, these past two years exceeded 100,000 spectators on both occasions. Specifically, in 2017 all the tickets sold out three months before the event, to a total of 135,000 persons.
