The Killers, Kings of Leon, Alt-J, Foals, and more to play four-day festival that costs €160

If you fancy a road trip, Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift are there too.

With the Christmas season fast approaching, it's likely that concert tickets are going to be a very popular gift and there have been a raft of gig announcements in recent weeks.

For example, Sunstroke is back, The Killers are putting on two Dublin gigs, Rage Against the Machine are going back onto the road. It's all happening.

However, if you're already making plans to travel for the summer, Mad Cool in Madrid might be the thing for you, especially if you love music.

The festival is running from 8-11 July and the lineup is exceptional.

Already established as one of the best new festivals in Europe, this year's billing is incredibly impressive with the likes of The Killers, Kings of Leon, Alt-J, Foals, Deftones, Anderson .Paak, Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Faith No More, Haim, Khalid, Major Lazer, Pixies, Sigrid, Wolf Alice, and more playing.

Yikes, that's good.

To sweeten the deal, the various ticketing packages are pretty cheap too. A four-day pass costs €159, a three-day day pass will run you €149, and a solitary day pass is €65.

Tickets go on sale on Sunday, 1 December 1 at 12am.

Granted, the festival is in Madrid but if you're careful with your planning and organisation, you could be able to get a decent deal on a flight.

At present, a flight from Dublin on 7 July (the day before the festival starts) and 12 July (the day after it ends) costs €112.

Now, that's decent value and you'll also have all the fun of a Spanish summer too.

Bueno.
