After being postponed in 2020, Madrid’s Mad Cool Festival will return with a killer lineup for their fifth anniversary. Today a majority of the acts on the festival’s lineup were announced, giving fans something to seriously look forward to next year.
Additionally, more bands are expected to be announced later in the year.
However, the festival did confirm that Taylor Swift will not be on the 2021 lineup in a recent announcement, “You have asked a lot about Taylor Swift, unfortunately, we are sad to tell you that she won’t be able to attend our next edition. We have been working with her agent and management to try to make it happen for our 5th anniversary, but it hasn’t been possible. Hopefully, we will have her in one of our future editions.” Both Swift and Billie Eilish were confirmed for the 2020 festival, but will not be on the lineup for the 2021 reboot.
Mad Cool is slated to take place from July 7th, 2021-July 10th, 2021. The festival organizers are also extending refunds to ticket holders who purchased tickets for the 2020 festival. The extension runs until the entire 2021 lineup is confirmed and announced.
