Antony Curates Meltdown Festival, Talks To Pitchfork

Each year Southbank Centre’s Meltdown Festival is currated by one mercurial artist. This August, that artist will be our very own Antony, lead singer of Antony and the Johnsons.

Antony’s lineup will feature artists he’s collaborated with before, like Charles Atlas and CocoRosie, but will also include artists he’s actively championed and admired through the years, like the Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser and the revolutionary Turkish singer Selda.
