Iconic post-punk band The Cure isn't just great at making music--they also put together a killer festival lineup.
The group has chosen the lineup for the late-summer festival Pasadena Daydream, which includes the Deftones, Mogwai, the Pixies, the Joy Formidable, and more, including The Cure as the headliner. The concert will be held on Saturday, Aug. 31, at the Brookside at the Rose Bowl. Tickets go on sale right here on AXS this Friday, May 17, at noon, with both general-admission and VIP passes. A dollar from each ticket sold will benefit music and arts education organizations and local charities.
The Cure celebrated their 40th anniversary last year with a concert in London, which informed their role in Pasadena Daydream.
"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," frontman Robert Smith said of the festival. Smith also teased the festival in an interview earlier this month, saying the festival would be "a really special one."
Smith and The Cure have curated other festivals in the past, including their own aptly named Curiosa festivals in 2004 and most recently, last year's Meltdown Fest in London. Some of Meltdown's acts are returning for Pasadena Daydream.
As for the band's enduring legacy, they were recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. During a Q&A following the ceremony, frontman Robert Smith said he was working on getting a new Cure album out before the end of the year.
