Robert Smith’s Meltdown

March 6, 2018

Not settled with a sold-out show in Hyde Park, Robert Smith is taking over London’s Meltdown Festival.

The Cure’s Robert Smith is curating this year’s Meltdown Festival and the line up has just been announced. Smith is taking us back to the ’90s with acts such as the Libertines, Nine Inch Nails, Placebo, Manic Street Preachers and more.

“As each invitee confirms, as each shimmering piece falls into place, I pinch myself – this is really happening… and the complete picture will undoubtedly be out of this world!” says Robert Smith. “Curating this 25th Meltdown festival is a dream come true, a fantastic experience.”

The festival will take place at Southbank Centre Venues from June the 15th until the 24th. More dates and artists are to be announced via the official website.
