Two UK artists will earn the opportunity to be a part of the Madrid festival

Mad Cool are extending their annual new artist search and setting up a special Mad Cool Talent UK division.

Successful winners from around the world will be selected to play at the festival, including two acts from the UK. This unique opportunity will see artists join stars such as The Cure, Vampire Weekend, The 1975, Smashing Pumpkins, The National, Iggy Pop, and many, many more.

To be in with a chance, all you need to do is head to, upload an original song and tell them a bit about your music.

Registration kicked off earlier today, and is set to close at midnight on Sunday 12th May.

Then the 50 top artists, as selected by DIY and NME, will go through to a public vote, with the eventual two winners revealed on 19th June.

Good luck!
