Arctic Monkeys look set to play a three-day festival that is cheap... as... chips

Pearl Jam, Kasabian, Queens of the Stone Age, Depeche Mode and Massive Attack are already there. Grab your mates!

Fake tales of bands at festivals echo through the room... but there's a hell of a lot of truth to these rumours that have linked the Arctic Monkeys with an appearance at Mad Cool Festival in Madrid.

In case that festival sounds familiar, we previously told you all about it because the lineup and cost are remarkable.

Pearl Jam, Kasabian, Queens of the Stone Age, Depeche Mode, Tame Impala, Fleet Foxes, Massive Attack, Snow Patrol and Alice in Chains are just some of the bands that have already been announced but there's one notable admission on their billing, the Friday headliner has been left off.

In a recent Instagram post, the festival organisers posted an image with the digits 0114 - that's the dialling code for Sheffield, the band’s hometown.

In fact, as you can see below, Matt Helders frequently has the numbers on his drum kit when they play.

At the present time, nothing official has been confirmed yet but we would be crying lightning if this isn't announced.

Why are we telling you this? Well, you might want to hold off on spending some of your hard earned money because the lineup for this festival is already mega.

The 80,000 capacity bash goes down across seven stages in the Valdebebas-Ifema between July 12 - 14, and tickets - which are very reasonably priced - are available here.

Keep an eye on the official pages for confirmation but an Arctic Monkeys appearance looks like a certainty.
