Goldenvoice Announces 2023 Just Like Heaven Fest Lineup

Just Like Heaven

 

Goldenvoice has just announced the 2023 lineup for the third annual Just Like Heaven Fest. Bringing the biggest and best bands of indie rock and electro dance back together for one unforgettable day of music, Just Like Heaven will take place once again in the golden foothills of Pasadena at Brookside At The Rose Bowl on Saturday, May 13, 2023.

I attended last year’s fest, headlined by Interpol, and I had a blast! It was a busy month of May as Just Like Heaven took place the weekend following the ’80s-oriented Cruel World happening at the same place. In 2019, there was also the DayDream Festival at the same location, headlined by the Cure… This made me think: shouldn’t be any Just Like Heaven fest headlined by the Cure? This year, Yeah Yeah Yeahs are at the top of the bill, just like for their 2019 pre pandemic edition, but I missed that one, so I don’t mind the repeat.

These festivals seem to be curated for people like me because I actually know (almost) every band that is playing and I wouldn’t say the same thing for Coachella for example! As before, Just Like Heaven attendees will be able to see some of the most celebrated artists of the current day, the biggest and best bands of indie rock and electro dance in one location, and ring in a new era of iconic music and culture.

Headliners Yeah Yeah Yeahs will be joined by MGMT, who will be performing their 2007 debut album “Oracular Spectacular” in full for the first time. The bill will include Future Islands, M83’s highly anticipated return, Hot Chip, who will be returning Stateside for the first Southern California show in four years, shapeshifting artist Fever Ray and a special performance from the recently reunited NYC band The Walkmen.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs say of the festival, “We’re headlining Just Like Heaven and cannot believe what a raaaaaaaad lineup it is this year! MGMT performing Oracular Spectacular! Fever Ray and M83 performing NEW music? what bliss! Karen cannot wait to rub elbows with goddesses Peaches and Azealia! Long time pals The Walkmen and the Faint representing? An embarrassment of riches of bands! Not to mention we’ll be playing some deep cuts off of Fever To Tell to celebrate its 20th birthday! Don’t be square! Be there!”

The one-day event will also feature Empire of the Sun, Caribou, The Bravery, Peaches, Azealia Banks – what if Karen O invites her for a song with Peaches? – Ladytron, STRFKR, Metronomy, The Faint, The Sounds, Cults, and a few more. There will also be a live podcast recording of the acclaimed How Long Gone Podcast with hosts Chris Black and Jason Stewart, as well as sets by Cinespace DJ’s.

MGMT says, “We are psyched to be returning to Just Like Heaven festival this May. Coinciding with the 15th year of its release, we will be performing all of Oracular Spectacular. And of course, we’ll be taking this opportunity to do some hearty experimentation. Expect the unexpected and see you in May!”

Passes go on sale this Friday, January 20th at 10 AM PST on justlikeheavenfest.com.
