Johnny Marr and Jungle are the latest acts to have been invited by this year’s curator Nile Rodgers to perform at Meltdown Festival on London’s Southbank between August 3rd-11th.

They join the likes of Thundercat, Kokoroko, Anitta, Durand Jones and The Indications, Kyle Dixon and Sophie and Songhoy Blues who have already been confirmed for the event as Rodgers follows previous curators such as Robert Smith and David Bowie. “To be able to curate and produce nine days of live music for the city of London, the UK and music enthusiasts visiting from all over the world is truly a dream come true,” he’s said.

“Anyone who knows my career knows that Funk, Disco, Jazz, Soul, Classical, POP, New Wave, R&B, Fusion, Punk Rock, Afrobeat, Electronic and Dance music all play a role and you can expect that to be reflected in the performances we are planning.”

“It’s all about the groove and this August everyone in London will be dancing to incredible live performances!”
