Grace Jones: Meltdown Festival 2020Solange Knowles, queer-feminist Peaches and soul icon Barry White are just three of the acts Grace Jones has invited to the Southbank Centre as she curates this year's Meltdown festival which returns for its 27th year. Reggae great Jimmy Cliff, the musician who penned 'I Can See Clearly Now', Lee Scratch Perry, who returns after curating Meltdown in 2003, and Graces Jones herself perform - as the curator closes the festival with "an extraordinary new show unlike any other she has performed before". Look out for The Love Unlimited Synth Orchestra, Skunk Anansie, Baaba Maal, Oumou Sangare, Meshell Ndegeocello, Lee Fields and the Expressions, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and more also at the fantastic festival of contemporary music and culture. As curator, Grace Jones joins a long list of illustrious Meltdown maestros including Nile Rogers, David Bowie, James Lavelle and Yoko Ono, Morrissey, Elvis Costello and Jarvis Cocker.
