Just Like Heaven festival returned to the grassy grounds of the golf course at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on Saturday, May 13, gathering for a day 20 bands that got their start in the aughts.

Brookside at the Rose Bowl, as the golf course turned festival field is known, is truly a lovely setting for festivals such as Just Like Heaven and Cruel World, the ‘80s-focused fest that takes place here Saturday, May 20.

“I’d like to thank all the golfers for letting us have a festival here,” said Joseph Mount midway his band Metronomy’s set Saturday afternoon.

“I always had the impression golfers were uptight, stuffy,” the singer-guitarist of the English electronic dance-rock band continued. “But they’re cool aren’t they?”

Fans flocked to two different stages early in the day to catch sets by disparate bands from the American electronic rock band the Faint to the avant-garde Swedish rock of Fever Ray.

Later in the day bigger names including headliners the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT, M-83 and Empire of the Sun were set to close out the day.
