The fourth annual Mad Cool multi-stage music event kicked off on Wednesday night in Madrid with around 40,000 people at a concert by Catalan singer, Rosalia, who has recently become an international celebrity.

This year, organisers have learned from criticism last year and reduced the number of stages and the capacity of the venue.

Headline acts at the festival until Saturday night include Bon Iver, Disclosure, Iggy Pop, Lewis Capaldi, Lauryn Hill and The Cure.
