Meltdown Festival 2018

June 15-24, 2018

London, UK

The Scene
This annual festival is held each summer in London at the massive Southbank Centre. Each year Meltodwn chooses an artist to curate the event. Previous Meltdown directors have included Elvis Costello, David Bowie, Patti Smith, Lee Scratch Perry, Morrissey, Jarvis Cocker, Nick Cave, Scott Walker, John Peel and Ornette Coleman.

‘What an honour to be picked by the fantastical teams of the Meltdown festival to be a curator… I will pick musicians that have some gut-wrenching quality, and I wish for all of us to stroll around in those ten days being rejuvenated by artistic gestures.’
-Christine and the Queens
