Guess UNKLE will play at some stage!
Musical and artistic innovator James Lavelle will curate the 21st Meltdown festival next year, following in the footsteps of some of music’s biggest names, including David Bowie, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, Jarvis Cocker and Massive Attack.
Combining creative entrepreneurship with a radical artistic approach, James’ genre-defying portfolio spans music, art, fashion, design and film, and as part of his groundbreaking work with UNKLE, boasts acclaimed musical collaborations with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Massive Attack, Nick Cave and Thom Yorke.
Collaboration, innovation and a spirit of non-conformism are central to his approach. James is working with young people to curate the programme, meaning that this very special Meltdown will further his commitment to mobilising the next generation to become the inventors of their own culture.
The full line-up will be announced in early 2014
