In a review of the 2022 edition of Mad Cool, NME described it as having “something in the air this year, truly making it a festival to remember”. “Any festival worth its salt will pack the lower echelons of its stacked line-up with some of the most exciting acts on show,” it added. “Fittingly, many of the early-evening artists at Mad Cool 2022 came to lay claim to the future.”
