About This Event

Cake on the eyeliner, cry it off and then dance away the tears at the return of this 1980s goth, new wave and punk fest with Siouxsie, Iggy Pop, Billy Idol, Love and Rockets, and Echo & the Bunnymen. The one-day-only event (though if it's like last year's, there's always a chance a second could be added) features dozens of '80s alt obsessions on the golf course next to the Rose Bowl: Adam Ant, the Human League, Gary Numan, Modern English, Gang of Four and more.
