Next year’s Meltdown Festival at London’s Southbank Centre will be curated by Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, it has been announced.

Says Garvey: “I see this as the perfect opportunity to shine a light on some amazing new talent whilst recognising and celebrating the artists that have had an influence on the new sounds of today. Beyond that I want my Meltdown to be a party where everyone feels invited and everyone leaves having had the best night out”.

This year’s event was put together by David Byrne and featured performances by artists including Johnny Greenwood, Sunn o))), Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Anna Calvi and more. The line-up for Garvey’s festival next June will be announced in the coming months.

As previously reported, Garvey will release his debut solo album at the end of this month.
