The Cure have just announced the details of their upcoming Pasadena Daydream Festival. The daylong fest takes place on August 31 at Brookside at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, and it will, of course, be headlined by The Cure. Also performing at the festival are The Pixies, Deftones, Mogwai, Throwing Muses, Chelsea Wolfe, The Joy Formidable, Emma Ruth Rundle, The Twilight Sad, and Kaelan Mikla. Tickets go on sale on Friday at noon Pacific time. See the full lineup on the poster above, and find more information about the festival here.
This curated festival is not unlike the 2004 Curiosa tour, at which the band was joined by bands such as Interpol, The Rapture and longtime favorite of the band, Mogwai.
Three classic albums by The Cure are featured on our list of the Top 100 Post-Punk Albums.
