Laura Marling and Connan Mockasin are the first two artists picked by Elbow frontman Guy Garvey for his part of this year’s Meltdown Festival.

Garvey is curating a portion of the event which runs from June 10th-19th at the Southbank Centre, and has said:

“I’ve not overthought it. I’ve put together a bill I’d love to see and I’ve made sure there’s something for everyone. All time greats that have never been far from the cutting edge, to brand new talent worthy of more attention and some reunions I never thought I’d see.”

“There’s plenty more still to announce but currently, alongside the music, we’ve got poetry and a ton of interactive events, and there is an overarching theme – boats.”

Meanwhile, Elbow confirmed the departure of their long-term drummer Richard Jupp just recently as they press on with recording new material, aiming at an album release in 2017.
