It all takes place at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid campus, enjoying the beautiful Madrid weather before the end of the summer. American rock band Imagine Dragons lead by Dan Reynolds come to Madrid as a part of its Evolve World Tour, presenting their new album.

The British band Bastille’s popularity has been on a steady rise with the publication of their second album Wild World and ever since they have been nominated for the Brit Awards as the Best British Band.

The Madrid-based indie pop/rock band Izal will present their fourth album Autoterapia filled with neo-indie songs.


The five-star lineup will be completed with the artists like Kakkmaddafakka, Triángulo de Amor Bizarro, Grises, Clairo, Nat Simons, Shinova, Terry vs Tori, Ochoymedio Djs & Friends and Albert Hammond Jr. who recently published his new album Francis Trouble.

With this deployment of artistic quality, DCODE is a not-to-be-missed event in the capital for yet another year. The festival, which is held in one of the city’s biggest and best communicated green spaces, includes something for all ages (children under the age of 10 have free entry to the festival and their very own Dcode Kids corner, where they can enjoy themselves with games, story-telling and face painting).
