Andalucia Big 2022 - Line Up

by Alex Cutts

The creators of Mad Cool festival in Madrid produced the first edition of Andalucia Big in September 2022. With their expertise and 6 years of lineups, the producers knew how to pull out the big names. The Andalucia Big festival brought a combination of both English speaking and Spanish bands. Read the reports and photos from each of the three on the links below.

Below is the line up as written before the festival. For festival days's report, see the links above.

The Headliners

C. Tangana, Franz Ferdinand, and Suede replace Rage Against The Machine as Thursday night’s headlining acts. C. Tangana is a Spanish rapper from Madrid, known for being a member of the rap group Agorazein. Forbes named C. Tangana one of the most influential people and creative artists in Spain in 2020. He is no stranger to heading festivals after he played at Sonar Festival in Barcelona earlier this year. Thursday’s second headline act comes from Scottish rock band Franz Ferdinand. Their top hit Take Me Out is sure to get the crowd chanting along. In the past they have won two Brit awards, one for the Best British Group along with the NME award in 2005. The final headline show for Thursday night will come from 90s Britpop group Suede. In 1994, Suede were considered to be members of the Britpop “big four’ alongside Oasis, Blur, and Pulp. Their biggest hit is their 1996 anthem Beautiful Ones, entering the UK Top 10 charts and peaking at number 8 after its release. Suede are known to have headlined Reading Festival in 1997 and V Festival in 1999.

Night two of the festival will welcome 90s British funk band Jamiroquai to the stage. With hits such as Virtual Insanity, Space Cowboy, and Cosmic Girl, along with lead singer Jay Kay’s array of quirky hats, the band are sure to bring an unforgettable show to close Friday night. Their headline slot at Andalucia Big is certainly a special one as it is the groups one and only Euopean show of 2022, giving fans a festival exclusive.

Andalucia Big will conclude on Saturday night with a headline show from English (Teignmouth, Devon) rock band Muse. Their 2006 hit Supermassive Black Hole made it to number four in the UK singles chart and featured in 2008 blockbuster movie Twilight, during the baseball scene. Lead singer Matt Bellamy said that the song contains “Rage Against the Machine riffs” perhaps giving fans a taste of what they are missing out on for Thursday’s line up.
