The first acts to be announced at this year’s annual Meltdown Festival at London’s Southbank Centre will include a reformed Sigur Ros performing a show with the London Contemporary Orchestra to mark the release of their first album in 10 years.

The youngest curator in Meltdown’s 28-year history, Héloïse Adélaïde Letissier (aka Christine and the Queens) has created a line-up reflecting his creative influences. Among them will be shows from Django Django, Sigur Ros, Warpaint, KOKOROKO, Yemi Alade and Oxlade at the Royal Festival Hall. Christine and the Queens (pictured) will close out the festival with two performances, 17 and 18 June.

The 9-18 June event will also involve shows in the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room from acts including Let’s Eat Grandma, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Bat For Lashes and Serpentwithfeet.

Southbank Centre artistic director Mark Ball said, “Christine and the Queens’ boundary-breaking work has made him one of the most compelling artists of our age. It’s thrilling to see the breadth of his extraordinary imagination come to life across Meltdown, one of the true highlights of the summer at the Southbank Centre.”

Previous acts to have curated the event include David Bowie, Grace Jones, The Cure and Patti Smith.
