Mad Cool Festival have announced 32 new acts on the 2022 line-up, including Florence + The Machine, Queens of the Stone Age, HAIM, Sam Fender and more.

The Madrid festival, now in its fifth year but cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, also confirmed that it will be a five-day festival next year, taking place from July 6-10 2022.

Acts including Metallica, Muse and The Killers were already announced to top the bill in a packed line-up.

Joining Florence + The Machine, Queens of the Stone Age, HAIM, and Sam Fender, other acts confirmed to perform across the five days include: CHVRCHES, Arlo Parks, Easy Life and Glass Animals.

Other acts already on the line-up include Twenty One Pilots, Kings Of Leon, Pixies, Foals, Sigrid, St Vincent, Wolf Alice, Yungblud and Carly Rae Jepsen.

Organisers also announced that a “few final additions” were due to be added to the final line-up.

Tickets to Mad Cool 2022 are on sale now via the website and Ticketmaster.

Earlier this year, festival organisers were forced to postpone for a second year due to continued uncertainty surrounding the pandemic.

In May, a festival statement said: “It has been a very painful decision to come to, as our desire (and probably yours) was to find ourselves all together again at Mad Cool in 2021.”

“However, we would like to let you know we think this is the appropriate, sensible and right decision to make. Health is more important than anything.”

Organisers added that they were ““working to be able to come back with an even better and more exciting festival at Mad Cool 2022”, adding it will be a “memorable event”.

A follow up tweet read: “We can promise that the next time we get together it will be unforgettable. We will enjoy music and life as it should be. We will shine again.”
