MASSIVE ATTACK APPOINTED ARTISTIC DIRECTORS OF SOUTHBANK CENTRE’S MELTDOWN 2008
Saturday 14 – Sunday 22 June 2008, Southbank Centre, London
SOUTHBANK CENTRE announces that MASSIVE ATTACK are ARTISTIC DIRECTORS of the 15TH MELTDOWN festival in 2008. Following in the mercurial footsteps of previous directors John Peel, Robert Wyatt, Scott Walker, David Bowie, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Morrissey, Patti Smith and Jarvis Cocker, this is the first time a group
has accepted the much-coveted invitation from Southbank Centre to curate their own festival. Between 14–22 June, in the concert halls and spaces of London’s iconic riverside arts centre, including Royal Festival Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall, MASSIVE
ATTACK will reveal just what makes them tick.
