Headlining the festival are US indie rockers Modest Mouse. In 2000, they released their major label debut, The Moon & Antarctica, to great critical acclaim. The album cemented the band’s status as one of the most important indie rock bands of their generation and helped to launch them into the mainstream.

Known for their dream pop sound and ethereal shoegaze aesthetic, Slowdive are set to join the lineup at Daydream festival.  Later developing a more atmospheric sound, they’re an alternative rock band that formed in Reading, Berkshire in 1989.

The festival will feature a mix of local and international talent – rounding out the lineup will be US indie rockers Beach Fossils and Cloud Nothings and Aussie homegrown legends Tropical Fuck Storm and Majak Door.
