The Cure's Robert Smith To Curate 25th Meltdown Festival

Tuesday, 06 February 2018 Written by Huw Baines

The Cure’s Robert Smith will curate this year’s Meltdown Festival.

The event will again be staged at the Southbank Centre in London, with Smith’s involvement following M.I.A’s work on the 2017 edition and past efforts from Patti Smith, Nick Cave, Yoko Ono, David Byrne, Massive Attack and Ornette Coleman.

“I am honoured and excited to be curating the 25th Meltdown,” Smith said.  “More than 30 of my all-time favourite artists – some of the most exciting, inspirational, intense and influential performers of the last 40 years – will make sure this 10-night extravaganza is the must-see event of the summer!”

Line up and ticket details are set to be revealed in March.
