Meltdown FestivalJames Lavelle, the man behind influential record label Mo'Wax, 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. 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.
