Nile Rodgers has been announced as the curator of this year’s Meltdown festival at London’s Southbank. Say what you like about Nile, he’s never not available.

“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”, says the funk man. “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”.

There aren’t many people Nile Rodgers hasn’t performed with or produced, so there’s definitely potential for his Meltdown line-up to be very exciting indeed. You’ll have to wait for the acts to be announced though. The event itself will run to 3-11 Aug.
