Robert Smith said of the curation that “I am honoured and excited to be curating the 25th Meltdown Festival. More than 30 of my all time favourite artists - some of the most exciting, inspirational, intense and influential performers of the last 40 years - will make sure this ten-night extravaganza at London’s Southbank Centre is the ‘must see’ event of the summer!” Line-up information will be released next month, early bird tickets go on sale to Southbank Centre members on 13th March and on general sale on the 15th.
