UPDATE, April 24, 2023: Slowdive are no longer on the Daydream bill, after drummer Simon Scott was injured. This article has been updated to reflect that change.
Float on, festival fans: come April, Australia's newest excuse to see a heap of bands in one spot will make its way along the country's east coast. That touring event: the just-announced Daydream, which joins the country's ever-growing roster of excuses to see and support live music.
Daydream is hitting the Riverstage in Brisbane on Sunday, April 30 with quite the roster of indie-rock talent — headlined by Modest Mouse three decades after the Washington-born group first got together.
Don't listen to the title of the band's acclaimed 2004 album, though — this is good news for people who love good news, not bad. Joining Modest Mouse on the bill are Australian favourites Tropical F*ck Storm, and the roster keeps going from there.
The lineup varies slightly per city, with Beach Fossils and Cloud Nothings also taking to the stage at all stops.
