Soulwax are set to play M.I.A.’s Meltdown

Giggs, Princess Nokia and Fakear have also been added to the bill.

More names have been added to this year’s Meltdown festival, curated by M.I.A.

Stephen and David Dewaele, better known as electornic pioneers Soulwax, are set to bring their latest album ‘From Deewee’ (and a whole bunch of drummers if their recent shows are anything to go by) to the Southbank Centre in June. They’re joined in a little group of new names by Giggs, Princess Nokia and Fakear.

The new additions join a bunch of name who were already headed to the curated event, including Crystal Castles, Young Fathers, JD Samson, Mykki Blanco, Young M.A., Yung Lean, and Afrikan Boy.

M.I.A.’s Meltdown gets underway from 9th until 18th June at the Southbank Centre in London, and further details can be found here.
