And the results are in! Now in its 19th year Southbank’s Meltdown Festival has released the 2012 line-up for curator and lead singer of Antony and the Johnsons, Antony Hegarty’s event.
Notorious for providing audiences with an array of remarkable events that celebrate musicians, artists and thinkers that have inspired the life and art of the host, this year, Antony has chosen his favorites from all across the artistic scale.

As per usual, the celebration doesn’t stop there! For all you film fanatics, this event will also feature four rarely screened Super-8 short films by Derek Jarman, an appearance by film director and video artist Charles Atlas and the return of the great Hal Willner.
