Mad Cool adds Lauryn Hill, Empire Of The Sun, The Gossip, and more to already expansive 2019 lineupMad Cool Festival Main Stage

Mad Cool’s lineup arrives as an exemplification of its name. Madrid’s multifarious music festival, Mad Cool is genre amorphous from its headliners to its flanking acts. Lauryn Hill, Empire Of The Sun, The Gossip, and Prophets Of Rage appear as the newest headliners to top the bill, which already touts Bon Iver, The National, The Smashing Pumpkins, and The Cure. Festival organizers have added several more artists to the festival’s expansive collection of talent, including Marina–formerly of Marina & The Diamonds–Let’s Eat Grandma, SG Lewis, Black Honey, Haiku Hands, and more.

A veritable sonic sampler, Mad Cool merges many genres, including, of course, the electronic. The Chemical Brothers, Disclosure, Charlotte De Witte, Eric Prydz, Years & Years, and Bonobo represent just some of Mad Cool’s dance selections. Mad Cool will host its musically explorative 2019 iteration from July 11-13. Tickets to the festival are currently available for purchase, here.

Ultra’s 2018 lineup may have leaked, according to multiple sources. Earlier this evening Empire of the Sun posted the leak to Instagram but they have since removed the post. Popular festival news twitter account, The Festive Owl, posted the leak to social media with a detailed account of the aforementioned series of events. Although it is unconfirmed as to whether the leak is in fact fully accurate, Empire of the Sun’s sharing of the festival’s poster increases the likelihood that the leak is indeed accurate and The Festive Owl’s certainty on the matter is certainly compelling.
