Dua Lipa, Janelle Monáe, Pearl Jam and Bring Me The Horizon are among the artists confirmed to be headlining next year's Mad Cool Festival in Spain.

Next year's festival will take place over four days in July.

Avril Lavigne, Greta Van Fleet, Tom Odell, Pearl Jam, Sum 41 and The Gaslight Anthem are among other artists set to perform.The opening Wednesday of the event will involve British pop icon and Grammy winner Dua Lipa headlining. This will be her second time performing at the festival. It follows the release of her new song Houdini, the lead single from her upcoming studio album.

The following day will see rock legends Pearl Jam top the bill, six years since they last appeared at the Spanish festival.

Canadian pop-punk band Sum 41 will headline the Friday, and Bring Me The Horizon will close out the festival on the final day.

As well as featuring four full days of music, Mad Cool organisers say they’ve made some changes for 2024. These include cutting the number of stages from eight to six and reducing capacity, which organisers said should "improve flows within the festival and reduce schedule conflicts and artist overlaps".

When is Mad Cool 2024?

Next year's Mad Cool Festival will take place from July 10-13.

The long-running festival will be in Madrid's Villaverde district.
