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 Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne on Saturday, April 22 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 Britain's Slowdive, who initially formed in 1989, the reformed in 2017, as well as Australian favourites Tropical F*ck Storm.

The lineup varies slightly per city, with Beach Fossils and Cloud Nothings also taking to the stage at all stops, plus Majak Door in Melbourne.
