Curiosa is the name of a 2004 concert tour in the United States and Toronto (Canada), organized by Robert Smith of The Cure. It began with a concert in West Palm Beach, Florida on July 24 and ended in Sacramento, California on August 29.
The headlining bands were The Cure, Interpol, The Rapture, and Mogwai. The concert had two stages, with the same main-stage line-up for the entire tour, and a rotating set of bands on the second stage (four per show).
While attendances were lower than expected, Curiosa was still one of the more successful American summer festivals of 2004.
