Speaking of being chosen as the curator for the event, Robert Smith said last month: “I am honoured and excited to be curating the 25th Meltdown. 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 is the must-see event of the summer!”
Meltdown kicks off between 15th and 24th June 2018.
