Here are the Set Times for Daydream Festival w/ Modest Mouse, Beach Fossils and More

The inaugural Daydream festival will travel through Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane over the next couple of weekends. The touring event, presented by Destroy All Lines, is headlined by Pacific Northwest indie rock elite Modest Mouse.

UPDATE 21/04/2023: Slowdive have cancelled their Australian tour as a result of a back injury experienced by drummer Simon Scott. No new acts have been added to the Daydream lineup, but set lengths have been extended.

Tropical Fuck Storm – ‘The Future of History’

The lineup also features Victorian-based noisy post-punk band Tropical Fuck Storm, who’re playing their first shows since revealing bass player Fiona Kitschin’s breast cancer diagnosis. US bands Cloud Nothings and Beach Fossils round out the international talent pool. Melbourne indie-pop crew Majak Door will open the Sydney and Melbourne shows.

All of the action will take place on a single stage at each Daydream event. Remaining tickets can be found here. Modest Mouse, Cloud Nothings and Beach Fossils are also playing sideshows, details of which can be found below.
