    To celebrate 40 years of making the world melancholy, The Cure headlined an enviable lineup at London’s Hyde Park on Saturday evening. As part of Barclaycard’s British Summer Time series, the day-long fiesta was sold as the band’s only European date, despite the fact that frontman Robert Smith literally threw his own party weeks prior with Meltdown Festival, where they were billed as Cureation 25. Nice loophole, huh?

    Nevertheless, The Cure’s Hyde Park soiree was similarly an Event to Remember and also saw performances by Interpol, Goldfrapp, Editors, Slowdive, Pale Waves, Ride, The Twilight Sad, This Will Destroy YouKaelan MiklaKathryn Joseph, and PG Lost. Photographer Debi Del Grande was on the scene to capture the whole event, and you can see her photos in her exhaustive gallery below followed by The Cure’s setlist.
