James Lavelle’s Meltdown line up announced

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.
