Meltdown 2018 curated by Robert Smith


#1

Well well well. Does he still have good taste?


#2

One thing we can say: there won’t be enough time for a support before the curator’s gigs.


#3

Does the curator always perform?


#4

I know he’s into The Twilight Sad but that’s about it


#5

I don’t think Anohni did…


#6

Bob has collaborated in the past with Republica and Blink182. i love the cure but i wouldn’t let him curate a wedding


#7

I’m struggling to think of one who didn’t.


#8

and Korn


#9

The Cure’s Hyde Park show this summer already has a feel of a Smith curated event about it tbh tbf.

I reckon for this he’ll try and get My Bloody Valentine. Maybe 65daysofstatic too…


#10

i hope he asks 65 :hearts::hearts::hearts:


#11

Anonhi is listed among the performers on hers but that is only on Wikipedia, so could easily be a guest spot.


#12

Line up announcement tomorrow. Assume Mogwai are involved


#13

Apparently there’s a Mixed Up 2 release planned, possibly for RSD, that includes a Mogwai remix.


#14

Scott Walker?


#15

That’s a very good shout - Southbank Centre says he made some sort of appearance but no other details so that could be anything. He might have been selling ice creams at the interval.


#16

I’VE SEEN IT because it’s being announced by the day job tomorrow. It’s pretty good. Bigger names than usual/a lot of rock


#17


#18

how much will tickets be for each gig? I’d certainly liek to go to some of the last 4 days


#19

yes! 65 :hearts::hearts::hearts:


#20

also, is there a gig on the 24th?
