The Cure will headlines and curate the new Pasadena Daydream Festival – which will take place at the Brookside at the Rose Bowl on Saturday, August 31. The one-day fest will also see performances by Pixies, Deftones, Mogwai, Throwing Muses, The Joy Formidable, Chelsea Wolfe, The Twilight Sad, Emma Ruth Rundle and Kælan Mikla.
Following their 40th anniversary appearance at BST Hyde Park, London in 2018, The Cure have invited a selection of their favorite artists for another summer headline event, this time set against the West Coast backdrop of Pasadena’s Rose Bowl.
In Robert Smith’s own words, “Hyde Park was a fabulous experience, the whole day was really magical, and we wanted to create something with a similar celebratory vibe for this summer.”
Recently inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame, The Cure has a string of hits including “Boys Don’t Cry,” “The Lovecats,” “In Between Days,” “Close To Me,” “Just Like Heaven,”” ‘Lullaby,” “Lovesong,” and “Friday I’m In Love.”
Tickets run $150 for GA (with a buck going to charity) and $300 for VIP. Passes go on-sale this Friday, May 17th at noon.
$1 from every ticket sold will go towards music and arts education organizations and local charities, which include Mr. Holland’s Opus, Little Kids Rock, Free Arts for Abused Children, Inner-City Arts and The Painted Turtle.
