DJ James Lavelle will host the Meltdown Festival this year at the Southbank Centre between Friday June 13th to Sunday June 22nd. Lavelle and DJ Shadow’s UNKLE crew will play a one off show at the Royal Festival Hall with a number of special guests that include Neneh Cherry, ESG, Chrissie Hynde, Radkey, Mark Lanegan, Goldie and many more.
Talking about the festival he says: “I intend to create a vibrant and exciting collage of counter-culture and collaboration from the worlds of music, film, art and everything in between. I want to bring together my influences from the past, the present and my work as an artist in contemporary society as well as transforming the space in a way that’s never been done before, both artistically and musically. In curating Meltdown I have a responsibility to inspire the next generation of young artists in the same way that I was inspired as a teenager. Together we will push boundaries, shoot for the moon and create something that people will never forget.”
Tickets go on sale April 3rd.
