MADRID is fighting back in the battle of Spain’s summer music festivals as Neil Young and the Prodigy head to the capital for Mad Cool.
The festival, in its inaugural year, will also feature Jane’s Addiction, Caribou, Stereophonics and Band of Horses between June 16-18.
The announcement comes a week after Barcelona’s Primavera Sound unveiled its stellar summer line-up, featuring LCD Soundsystem and Radiohead.
Mad Cool Festival will take place on the banks of the Manzanares river where there is space for more than 45,000 people.
The site at Caja Magica will have special five stages installed, three of them covered.
