The wait is finally over!

After weeks, if not months of speculations, the lineup for the second edition of Cruel World Fest has been released and it is amazing!

The goth and new wave vibe festival is coming back on Saturday, May 20 to the Brookside at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA with Siouxsie Sioux as the headliner, her last show in North America was 15 years ago, so having her in the lineup is unbelievable!

The festival also includes the presence of Iggy Pop, who just released new album ‘Every Loser‘, Billy Idol, who was just honored with his Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star and a reunited Love And Rockets, who haven’t given a show since 2008, also Echo & The Bunnymen who were part of 2022 Lineup but had to drop out due to visa issues.

Other great names included in this 2023 edition are Adam Ant, The Human League, Molchat Doma, Gary Numan, Boy Harsher, Modern English, Gang Of Four, Twin Tribes, ABC, Elm Minus, among others.
