Nile Rodgers To Curate This Year's Meltdown Festival

Tuesday, 12 February 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

Nile Rodgers will curate this year's Meltdown Festival.

The event will again be staged at the Southbank Centre in London, with Rodgers' involvement following Robert Smith's work on the 2018 edition and past efforts from M.I.A., Patti Smith, Nick Cave, Yoko Ono, David Byrne, Massive Attack and Ornette Coleman. He said:

“To be able to curate and produce nine days of live music for the city of London, the UK and music enthusiasts visiting from all over the world is truly a dream come true. Anyone who knows my career knows that Funk, Disco, Jazz, Soul, Classical, POP, New Wave, R&B, Fusion, Punk Rock, Afrobeat, Electronic and Dance music all play a role and you can expect that to be reflected in the performances we are planning.”

Line up and ticket details are due to be announced soon. Head here for updates.
