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 Hordern Pavilion in Sydney on Saturday, April 29 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, plus Majak Door in Sydney.
