Louder News: Mad Cool Festival announce Placebo, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes + more new names

Don your bucket hats, pack your suncream, and get ready for a heatwave- it's festival announcement season, and Mad Cool Festival in Madrid have already gotten off to a blistering start!

Adding to their already considerable chorus of well-loved names, today the festival announced their new wave of acts, and it blew the music world away! Infamous dark alt-rockers Placebo will be bringing their characteristic brooding grandeur to the stage, alongside sucker-punching punks Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, who are guaranteed to conjure up brutal mosh pits! Indie rock starlet Sam Fender is also amongst the new arrivals, alongside rock and roll aficionados The Struts, City and Colour's stargazing rock, experimental jazz-rockers The Comet Is Coming, and the haunting melodies of masked collective Sleep Token.

These new arrivals join the already jam-packed line up, which includes headline performances from The Killers, Taylor Swift, twenty one pilots, Kings of Leon, Faith No More and Billie Eilish. Deftones will also make an appearance, as well as the Pixies, Wolf Alice, Nothing But Thieves, and Yungblud, amongst countless others! And, with two headliners still left to be announced, there is plenty more excitement to come- this is definitely a festival you do not want to miss out on!

Mad Cool Festival 2020 will take place in Madrid from the 8th to the 11th of July. Tickets are available here, and the full line up so far can be found below:
