Spain’s Mad Cool Festival has unveiled its mega first announcement for next summer.

Heading to Villaverde in Madrid between July 10 – 13, 2024 are Pearl Jam, The Smashing Pumpkins, Bring Me The Horizon and Avril Lavigne topping stages on various days alongside the likes of Dua Lipa and Janelle Monáe. And bolstering the rest of the line-up is everyone from Sum 41 to The Gaslight Anthem to Greta Van Fleet and Garbage.

As well as featuring four full days of music, Mad Cool say they’ve made some changes for 2024, including going from eight stages to six, and reducing capacity which should in turn ‘improve flows within the festival and reduce schedule conflicts and artist overlaps’. There will also be more drinking water stations, toilets, shaded areas and other experience-improving endeavours.

Check out the full line-up (so far!) below.
