July Radio: Meltdown!


I am curating the Meltdown Festival in London next month at the Southbank center. Aug 17- 30. Check their WEBSITE for tickets and more info. 

The Southbank center is essentially 3 concert halls, of varying sizes, as well as some other public spaces, lounges, restaurants and bars. Right in the center of London, on the banks of the Thames. It’s a very eclectic grouping of artists, no surprise, and I have tried to mix in some interesting theater pieces and installations as well, blurring the line between musical and theatrical performance- a line which doesn’t really exist, but that we sometimes tolerate.

Some of the artists many will be familiar with, but I assume others will be new. Here then, is a 3 hour plus streaming non interactive playlist that has a little music from EVERY act that’s taking part. (Except the Gob Squad theater piece- though there is some singing in that too). So- if you’re having trouble making up your mind what to see, maybe this can help.
