RICHARD THOMPSON, Director of Southbank Centre's Meltdown, said:
"I am very excited to be hosting this year's Meltdown Festival at the South Bank. The wide-ranging programme reflects many of my interests and influences across many musical, visual and literary styles, and should provide some unique moments, unusual collaborations and juxtapositions. All this in the place where I saw my first concert in 1961-such an honour!"
