The original Mad Cool Festival is expanding to a five-day event this summer as it celebrates its fifth anniversary.

Organisers previously promised that they were “working very hard to compensate [attendees]” in 2022 with “an unforgettable experience” after both of their 2020 and 2021 festivals were cancelled due to COVID.

Rage Against The Machine, who haven’t performed live since 2011, are also set to headline Reading & Leeds 2022 in August alongside Arctic Monkeys, Dave and more.

Muse, meanwhile, recently returned to the stage at a tiny gig in Devon ahead of releasing their ninth album ‘Will Of The People’ on August 26. The trio will headline the Isle Of Wight Festival in June.

Next month, they’ll play two intimate charity gigs at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London.
