Tickets were made available today for the midwest’s premiere festival for shoegaze and dream pop, Kalamashoegazer. Now in its eleventh installment, this DIY festival has become the gold standard for festivals of its kind, and the venue change to Bell’s Brewery is an upgrade everyone is genuinely enthusiastic about.

DreamGaze takes over Los Angeles on August 8th, and Sunset Boulevard will be filled with the sounds of shoegaze and dream pop. The second installment of DreamGaze Festival has been announced, and the lineup is legit. They’ve packed six hours of live music with Millionyoung, Cre•scen•do, Balms, Shallow, Surf Club, Young Lovers, Ablebody, Bixby Knolls and Cruelty Code. How they’ll fit all this in in six hours is anybody’s guess, but it’s sure to be a night of shine and sparkle.

DreamGaze event site just launched, Facebook event page now live, DreamGaze Festival Twitter now tweetering, and the hashtag #DreamGazeFestival now trending, looks like this is the start of something big.
