The Cure have announced they will headline a new music festival in Pasadena, California called the Pasadena Daydream Festival. The one-day event will take place Saturday, August 31 at the Rose Bowl.
Fresh off their curation of last year’s Meltdown Festival in London—which saw them recruit artists including Nine Inch Nails and My Bloody Valentine—the Cure have also selected artists for this new North American event.
Returning from Meltdown 2018 are Deftones and Mogwai; elsewhere on the lineup are Pixies, Throwing Muses, Chelsea Wolfe, the Joy Formidable, the Twilight Sad, and more. Tickets go on sale May 17 here. Check out the full lineup below.
The Cure were recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where they were introduced by Trent Reznor of NIN. During a Q&A after the ceremony, Robert Smith stated he was aiming to release a new Cure album before the end of 2019.
Pasadena Daydream, will happen at Brookside at the Rose Bowl, the golf course surrounding the hallowed stadium that also hosted Arroyo Seco Weekend in 2017 and 2018. It’s produced by concert promoter Goldenvoice, the company behind Arroyo Seco Weekend, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio and the recent Just Like Heaven festival in Long Beach, which, while named after the Cure’s hit, didn’t feature the band.
Tickets for Pasadena Daydream go sale at noon Friday, May 17. Passes are $150 for general admission, $300 for VIP, before fees. All of the ticket prices include a $1 donation to that will go towards music and arts education organizations and local charities, including Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, Little Kids Rock, Free Arts for Abused Children, Inner-City Arts and The Painted Turtle.
