The pop phenomenons are amongst the first names revealed for next year’s festival!

It’s starting to get super bloody cold again, and, we don’t know about you, but we’re ready to start dreaming about next summer already.

Luckily, our pals at Mad Cool seem to be doing the exact same thing, because they’ve just announced the first wave of artists for 2020, and the Madrid-based festival is not messing about.

Returning to Spain for her first concert after a nine year absence, pop heavyweight Taylor Swift will be taking to the stage as one of the first confirmed headliners of the Spanish fest, and she’ll be joined by the epic Billie Eilish, who has already been showing why she’s headliner material at loads of other festivals this past summer.

Following an explosive Reading and Leeds headlining set, Twenty One Pilots have also been confirmed to perform, as well as rock legends Pixies, indie trio alt-J and Swedish superstar Tove Lo.

Set to be pretty bloody epic, revisit what went down at Mad Cool 2019 here.
