Yoko Ono has just been confirmed as the curator of the 2013 Meltdown Festival, to be help at London's South Bank next summer. The curation will mark both the 20th anniversary of Meltdown, and Ono's 80th birthday. As yet, no details (including dates) are known, but the Festival issued the following statement from Yoko Ono: "I am deeply honoured to curate the world-famous Meltdown Festival. In doing so I am aware of the great tradition of experimentalism mixed with classicism that has made the festival such an enduring part of the British arts landscape. I am now starting to approach names from all over the world, some of whom you will know and some who might be new to your world. Let the fun begin!" Can't wait!

This could be really good. This year's Meltdown was among the best I've been to.
