James Lavelle will curate the 2014 Meltdown Festival at Southbank Centre in London.
“I am deeply honoured to have been asked to curate Meltdown 2014. I intend to create a vibrant and exciting collage of counter culture and collaboration from the worlds of music, film, art and everything in between. I want to bring together my influences from the past, the present and my work as an artist in contemporary society as well as transforming the space in a way that’s never been done before, both artistically and musically. In curating Meltdown I have a responsibility to inspire the next generation of young artists in the same way that I was inspired as a teenager. Together we will push boundaries, shoot for the moon and create something that people will never forget.”
- James Lavelle
The full Meltdown lineup will be announced in early 2014.
