Meltdown Festival has been curated by the likes of Yoko Ono, David Bowie and Nile Rodgers, and now Grace Jones is taking the reins for 2022 – two years later than planned thanks to you-know-what but it sounds like it’ll be worth the wait. She’s drafted in the likes of Angélique Kidjo, John Grant, Sky Ferreira, Hot Chip and the Kasai Allstars, Desire Marea, Honey Dijon, Peaches, Skunk Anansie, Meshell Ndegeocello, Oumou Sangaré, The Love Unlimited Synth Orchestra, Lee Fields, and Baaba Maal to perform, with Jones herself opening and closing the festival. Yep it’s going to be a little bit special.
