Monday, 11 April 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

Grace Jones' Meltdown festival has got even bigger.

Greentea Peng, Dry Cleaning, Eska, Alewya, Josey Rebelle, and Cktrl with the London Contemporary Orchestra have joined the line-up.

The event was originally set to take over London's Southbank Centre in June 2020 before being pushed back to 2021 and then 2022 in response to the coronavirus pandemic. A post from organisers reads:

"Before the Covid-19 pandemic, back when none of us knew what a furlough was and the only people to put a city on lockdown were Blue, we announced the initial artists of our 27th Meltdown festival; headlined and curated by the one and only Grace Jones. And now we take a huge step towards the festival’s realisation with the addition of 15 fresh acts to the line-up, and a second appearance of Jones herself."
