"I am beyond excited at how much of this has fallen into place. It’s quite eclectic and I hope there are some new discoveries for everyone – including me – in this edition of the festival’ - David Byrne.
Southbank Centre’s Meltdown festival is famed for bringing to life the world of its director. This year the multi-award winning musician David Byrne, known for his eclectic collaborations and as a co-founder of the seminal new-wave band Talking Heads curates the festival, offering fans unique insight into artists and ideas that influence and inspire Byrne today.
In 2015, its 22nd year, Meltdown spans a range of musical genres, from afro-funk to flamenco, spoken word to second-line – it also stretches beyond the musical realm into dance and theatre, with one production featuring Byrne himself.
