Robert Smith Tapped As Curator For Meltdown Festival


The Cure's Robert Smith has been tapped as the curator of the upcoming Meltdown Festival this year. The event will take place at London's Southbank Centre and the complete lineup for the festival is expected to be released in March.

"I am honoured and excited to be curating the 25th Meltdown Festival," Smith said in a statement. "More than 30 of my all time favourite artists - some of the most exciting, inspirational, intense and influential performers of the last 40 years - will make sure this 10-night extravaganza at London's Southbank Centre is the must-see event of the summer!"

Smith and the Cure will also play a headlining set in the city's Hyde Park this summer. The show will take place as part of the city's British Summer Time 2018 fest on Saturday, July 7. Tickets for that show went on sale in December.
