HOLA! Looking for the best music festivals in Madrid in 2023!? Well, I’m here to help, because anyone who knows me at all knows how much I love all things Spain.

So it goes without saying that there are a million reasons I’d return to Spain at a moments notice – one of which is the plethora of epic music festivals in Madrid!
The Spanish capital is an always-buzzing melting pot of cultures and influences, and for music fans, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Rock, EDM, pop and cultural festivals all make an appearance, plus many more genres to suit any taste in tunes.

When: July 6-9, 2023
Where: Valdebebas – IFEMA, Madrid

Now preparing for only its fourth edition, the three-day festival has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, attracting crowds of 80,000 fans per day. Mad Cool’s biggest draw is without doubt the huge lineup that they offer each year, featuring giants from across the globe. But combine that with the festival’s investment in sound quality, the almost guaranteed summer sun, and the opportunity to explore Madrid afforded by the late start to the music each day, and there’s even more going for it than the acts on the bill.”
