The Cure’s Robert Smith Makes Huge Nine Inch Nails Announcement


The Cure frontman Robert Smith was announced as the curator of this summer’s Meltdown Festival a few months back and promised it would be the “must-see event of the summer.”

The lineup he announced today includes Nine Inch Nails, My Bloody Valentine, Deftones, Placebo, Manic Street Preachers, The Libertines, Mogwai, The Psychedelic Furs, The Church, Kristin Hersh, The Notwist, and Mono.

In a press release, Smith says, “I am honoured and excited to be curating the 25th Meltdown Festival. More than 30 of my all-time favourite artists – some of the most exciting, inspirational, intense and influential performers of the last 40 years – will make sure this ten-night extravaganza is the ‘must see’ event of the summer!”

In addition to curating the festival, Robert Smith will also play a two-hour 40th anniversary show in London’s Hyde Park on July 7, featuring sets from Interpol, Goldfrapp, and Slowdive.
