Madrid’s incredible Mad Cool Festival made its grand return one week ago, with the Spanish capital hosting perhaps the strongest line-up of the summer. Revellers made the most of the searing heat in front of the festival’s half a dozen-odd stages, with the likes of Muse, Metallica, Florence + the Machine and Nothing But Thieves among the highlights. We sent Virginia Barbero to the festival to capture what went down, and so here’s an artist-by-artist look back at another behemoth edition of Mad Cool.
