CC14 brings over 250 artists, DJs and fringe events to NW1 and NW5 on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st June for a live music marathon the week before Glastonbury. The festival always delivers with a cutting-edge list of up-and-coming local bands and established stars, and this year is no different with more than 250 live artists on the line-up. Venues such as Koko, Roundhouse, the Electric Ballroom and the Jazz Café will welcome the likes of ABC, Steve Mason, Mouse on Mars and Atari Teenage Riot to their stages.

Highlights among the impressive list of acts lined up include Chrissie Hynde who plays her first UK show in five years, drum and bass DJ Goldie whose seminal album is performed live by the Heritage Orchestra, and hip hop legend Grandmaster Flash and Scratch Perverts who kick off the festival with a double-bill celebrating these two masters of the turntable. Performance artists Carnet de Voyage create a site specific work as support for Neneh Cherry, Detroit DJ and producer Jeff Mills plays a headline show in the Royal Festival Hall, with support from A Guy Called Gerald. And DJ sets will take place in the foyer spaces of the Southbank Centre every night of the festival. In curating this year's Meltdown Lavelle joins a long list of esteemed musical innovators who have previously taken on the role including Yoko Ono, David Bowie, John Peel, Morrissey, Jarvis Cocker, Patti Smith, Massive Attack and Lee 'Scratch' Perry.

James Lavelle, the man behind influential record label Mo'Wax which he set up at the age of 18, curates this year's Meltdown festival when it returns to the Southbank Centre in June 2014 as the alternative music festival marks its 21st anniversary. Each year, the iconic festival is curated by one of pop music's great innovators - which have included Yoko Ono, David Bowie, John Peel, Morrissey, Jarvis Cocker, Patti Smith, Massive Attack and Lee 'Scratch' Perry - and produces a wildly eclectic line-up of acts. In 2014, an interactive exhibition, Mo'Wax21, celebrates the label James launched as a teenager and Lavelle promises to, "push boundaries, shoot for the moon and create something that people will never forget." The full line up is announced in 2014 but with Lavelle's little black book containing numbers for Massive Attack, Nightmares On Wax and Gavin Turk you can expect a trip hop inspired eclectic mix.

Jabberwocky

A brand new two-day festival for 2014 from All Tomorrow's Parties.

Jabberwocky Jabberwocky PLEASE NOTE: Jabberwocky has been cancelled. Official message from All Tomorrows Parties: "It is with deep sadness we regret to inform everyone that as of today Tuesday 12th August 2014, ATP is being forced into cancelling this weekend's Jabberwocky festival. Refunds will be available to all customers at the point of purchase."

Jabberwocky is a brand new two-day festival for London, brought to you by ATP (All Tomorrow's Parties), a London based company that has been promoting festivals, concerts and records at Butlin's and throughout the world for over ten years. They've teamed up with Pitchfork and Primavera Sound to give festival goers the chance to see acts rarely programmed at other UK festivals, cinema screenings and what will surely be 'frabjous' (fair, fabulous, and joyous) extra-curricular activities. The musical line-up includes American indie rock band Neutral Milk Hotel, "smartly crafted electronic music" (LA Times) from Caribou, Dorset doom metal legends Electric Wizard, and Swedish duo I Break Horses. The festival is also unusual in its setting - taking place as it does in the ExCeL Centre, which more usually hosts large scale exhibitions and business conventions. For those who rate music that pushes against the flow this will be a welcome addition to the London summer calendar.
