The party in Madrid doesn’t end after Pride. Although with a much less vindictive touch but with the same energy, it is followed each year by Mad Cool, a music festival where art, fashion and gastronomy also have their weight.
After two consecutive editions canceled due to COVID, the big musical event is back in force and with an unbeatable program. Metallica, The Killers, Muse, Kings of Leon and Twenty One Pilots are just a few of this year’s artists.
Although there are only a few days left before the start of the first concerts, it is still possible to find tickets. If you don’t want to miss one of Madrid’s biggest parties of the whole summer, keep reading.
