French-based artist Christine and the Queens has been announced as curator for the longest-running artists-curated festival in the world, Meltdown Festival 2023.
The Southbank Centre will be transformed from Friday 9 June until Sunday 18 June 2023 into a place where fans can see artists that have shaped and inspired Chris’ musical identity and those who are inspiring it today.
On curating 2023’s Meltdown festival, Christine and the Queens said: “What an honour to be picked by the fantastical teams of the Meltdown festival to be a curator this year ! It’s a tough thing to be a curator… I hope you’ll enjoy this glorious edition and again, long live poetry that burns and musicians crazy and brave enough to keep going – they are shaping the emotions of the future. Let’s thank them all!”
