The Cure will celebrate their 40th anniversary by staging their very own festival in the US later this year. The Pasadena Daydream Festival goes down Saturday, August 31st at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
In addition to a headlining performance from The Cure, the lineup promises sets from a number of similarly prestigious indie and alternative acts, all of who were personally selected by The Cure’s Robert Smith. That includes Pixies, Deftones, Mogwai, Throwing Muses, Chelsea Wolfe, The Twilight Sad, The Joy Formidable, and Emma Ruth Rundle.
Tickets to the Pasadena Daydream go on sale May 17th at 12:00 p.m. PST via the festival’s website.
In the months leading up to Pasadena Daydream, The Cure will keep busy with tour dates all across the globe, including a multi-night stint at the Sydney Opera House, where they’ll perform Disintegration in full. They’re also scheduled to headline Austin City Limits in October. Further US tour dates are expected in 2020.
A new album is also in the works and should arrive before Christmas. Plus, fans can expect to see two new films — including one chronicling their 40th anniversary concert in Hyde Park last year — in the coming months.
