Mad Cool Festival does not lower its guard. THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS, IGGY POP, ROBYN, DISCLOSURE, YEARS & YEARS, VINCE STAPLES and SHARON VAN ETTEN, among other bands, join the third wave of acts announced for next July.
The poster for Mad Cool 2019 is reinforced by the presence of THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS, who have just announced their ninth studio album for release in 2019 and the Swedish singer and songwriter ROBYN whose latest work , ‘Honey’, has been considered one of the albums of the year by the specialised press. In addition Mad Cool Festival will have the presence of IGGY POP, living legend of punk and fundamental reference for each and every one of the bands of the history of the genre.
British band YEARS & YEARS, who have made a great leap with their latest album “Palo Santo” along with the ubiquitous duo of DISCLOSURE (in Dj set format) are added to the poster, reinforcing the electronic section with the Swedish producer and DJ ERIC PRYDZ.
There will also be international stars such as VINCE STAPLES, one of the most outstanding rappers of the current hip hop scene and the singer and composer SHARON VAN ETTEN and MILES KANE (very popular thanks to his project The Last Shadow Puppets with Alex Turner ). Special mention also deserves the very young H.E.R., already considered a contemporary R & B teacher, her debut album has five nominations for the 2019 Grammys.
In addition to THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS, DISCLOSURE and ERIC PRYDZ, Mad Cool Festival 2019 electronic bet continues to grow with the additions of GEORGE FITZGERALD, the Belgian producer and DJ CHARLOTTE DE WITTE, the Korean-born American TOKiMONSTA, the London DJ HAAi and the Spanish settler in Berlin JASSS.
Beyond strict electronics we find proposals like the NAO, who explores all the urban genres of the country (UK garage, grime, 2step and dancehall) or the eclecticism of YONAKA, the band of Theresa Jarvis, whose sound goes from the exuberance of garage rock, even the heaviest rhythms inspired by hip hop.
From the other side of the Atlantic, Mexicans based in El Paso (Texas) LE BUTCHERETTES will arrive, in equal parts, brain poetry, artistic assault and punk cacophony, and Colombians MITÚ, Julián Salazar’s psychedelic techno project (Bomba Estéreo) next to the percussionist Franklin Tejedor. And directly from Madrid, the Italoespañola band DELAPORTE bets on an electronic sound with elements of funk, soul, R & B and jazz.
Finally, three bets of rock’n’roll of different nature and origin. LALA LALA, project of the guitarist and composer Lillie West, invoices a delicate and intimate indie-rock, while VALERAS seem destined to write the next chapter of UK guitar music. Something very similar to what the DOBLECAPA duo are doing from the neighborhood of Humanes in Madrid with their incendiary proposal.
A total of 23 new additions that are added to names like THE CURE, BON IVER, THE NATIONAL, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS, NOEL GALLAGHER and VETUSTA MORLA.
