USA: The Cure will headline and curate Goldenvoice’s new Pasadena Daydream Festival, set to take place at the Rose Bowl on August 31 and featuring 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 favourite 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 been instrumental in shaping the global, post-punk musical landscape. Earning a reputation for melancholy with albums such as Pornography, Disintegration, and Bloodflowers, the band has also produced a considerable succession of pop 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’.
