After two years of hiatus due to the health crisis, the Mad Cool has returned this year to break a record of attendees that, although today on its last day it has been less than the previous days -25,000 people compared to the 70,000 per day that have hung the full capacity sign-, they have made this edition the most massive.

After hosting during these days a group of bands like Metallica, museImagine Dragons or The Killersthe turn has come today for the Argentine Nathy Peluso, headliner of a last day in which they have also performed Jack White, Sam Fender, La MODA or Natos y Waor.

With the torrent of energy that characterizes her, Nathy Peluso, with her rhythms between Latin and trap, rap and even electronic, has poured a parade of songs like ‘Delito’ and ‘Mafiosa’ onto the Mad Cool stage, before an audience that mostly gathered to receive Argentina as one of the most anticipated performances of the day.

Choreographies full of his magnetic power that discharge sensuality and strength in equal parts have accompanied a proposal that Peluso has poured with songs like ‘Puro Veneno’, belonging to his album ‘Calambre’, which has won a Latin Grammy in the alternative music category.

‘I love you Madrid, the only city in the world where I can walk without getting lost’, Peluso thanked arriving at the end of the concert singing ‘To live like this is to die of love’.

The British Sam Fender, considered by many heir to Bruce Springsteen for his energy and his lyrics, especially as a result of his latest work, ‘Seventeen Going Under’, has taken the main stage before Peluso at half past eight in the evening.

Before Peluso it would also have been the turn of the singer-songwriter Arlo Parks who, within hours of his performance, published on his Instagram the cancellation of it for a case of covid in his band. A situation that has also marked this festival in which there have been several casualties due to health reasons.

The day came to an end thanks to authors such as Jack White, former member of The White Stripes, who has flooded the festival with his rock in contrast to the rap of Natos and Waorwho has performed, among others, the song ‘Frost Sweats’, for which they have taken the stage to ‘Recycled’ which, hours later and alone, has brought the festival to an end.
