10 BEST INDIE MUSIC FESTIVALS AROUND THE WORLD

The definition of indie music is so broad that it covers many areas. Many bands that started as independent have ended up being stars with great success, such as Lori, Dover, Meyers, and Supersubmarina. If you are a fan of indie music, keep reading because this summer you are going to go to the best indie festivals!

10 Best Indie Music Festivals

Indie festivals were born in the nineties as a meeting point for lovers of alternative pop rock. The music scene lived in its den, isolated from the commercial radio formula and closed to anything that didn’t sound as traditional. But, little by little, as it emerged from the underground, it opened first to electronics, then to world music, then to the mainstream, and now to urban movement!

Mad Cool

Mad Cool has become one of the most acclaimed festivals. In addition to great pop figures such as Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Iggy Pop, The Smashing Pumpkins, The National, Vetusta Morla, Teenage Fanclub, The Cure, Cat Power, Gossip or Lauryn Hill, in 2019, Rosalía also appeared!

Mad Cool is now the new king of festivals in Spain, they closed in 2019, with more than 240,000 attendees! Also, they expanded the relaxation areas and the restaurant areas, they have eliminated a “stage” to have more spaces for the flow of the public, eliminated the VIP areas in front-stage, improved the entrance hall to the enclosure, the entrances, and the WC! 

If you like indie music, you have to go to Madrid to enjoy this experience. In 2022, it will last a total of five days: July 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10!
