Meltdown Festival: Guy GarveyElbow lead singer Guy Garvey curates the marvellous Meltdown Festival in 2016. Launched 23 years ago, the festival puts one well connected music industry figure in the driving seat and gives them free reign to invite whoever they like to the Southbank Centre. With the lead singer of the Mercury Prize winning elbow in charge we can expect new and undiscovered artists - continuing Guy's work championing such talent on BBC 6 Music. If the band's own 2008 Meltdown performance is anything to go by, there'll be unmissable events like a choir of identikit Guy Garveys joining elbow on stage. We can also look forward to one-off performances and collaborations by well known artists who have influenced the Bury-born lyricist who follows in the footsteps of Patti Smith, David Bowie, Yoko Ono and David Byrne in curating the boundary-pushing festival.

About Southbank Centre
