It feels like forever since we’ve been able to write a news story about Gang of Youths adding a live gig to its schedule, rather than having its schedule of live gigs decimated by the pandemic.
But we get to do that today!
Gang of Youths has officially been added to the lineup for the 2021 Mad Cool Festival in Madrid, Spain! The festival happens over four days in early July, and GOY is due to perform on Saturday, July 10. Red Hot Chili Peppers are the headliner that day.
Tickets for the entire festival are available now.
All of this, of course, assumes that we’ll be able to have live music festivals by next July. Here’s hoping that’s the case!
This’ll be Gang of Youths’ second time performing at Mad Cool. Back in 2018, the band did a 6-song set mostly highlighting songs from Go Farther In Lightness. We can safely assume next year’s performance will feature songs from their upcoming album.
Here’s a listen to “Let Me Down Easy” from that Mad Cool appearance in 2018.
