Davies

We mentioned that Ray Davies was curating Meltdown 2011 this year – and now the line-up has been revealed. Sadly without a Kinks reunion, but with a few decent things in there.

The line-up includes the likes of Ray Davies, Arthur Brown, The Fugs, Geno Washington, Alan Price, John Cooper Clarke, Madness and The Sonics, playing over 10th – 19th June. Full line-up (as it stands, more will be added) over the page, with tickets on sale from 29th March (members) and 31st March (all).
