Also scheduled to appear are Lil Nas X, The 1975, Sigur Rós, Paolo Nutini, Queens of the Stone Age, The Black Keys, Bombay Bicycle Club and Jamie XX.

A total of 53 bands have been announced so far for the three days of the festival, which will take place in a new location in the Villaverde neighbourhood. Mad Cool started out at the Caja Mágica tennis stadium before moving to the area of Valdebebas, near Madrid’s Barajas Airport. Red Hot Chili Peppers are celebrating their 40th anniversary as a band and recently released their second album of 2022, Return of the Dream Canteen.
