Grace Jones will curate next year's edition of Meltdown festival at London's Southbank Centre.

"I am honoured to be curating next year's Meltdown festival," Jones says. "Year after year, the festival continues to spread its colourful wings, allowing its curators to bring together an array of diverse talent not seen anywhere else. It's about time I was asked to curate Meltdown darling, don't you think?!"
