The line-up for Antony Hegarty‘s Meltdown festival at London’s Southbank Centre has been revealed.

The Antony And The Johnsons singer is curating the annual festival, following in the footsteps of Jarvis Cocker, David Bowie and, most recently, The Kinks’ Ray Davies, by curating the 12-day festival which runs August 1-12.

This summer the event will see performances from the Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser, Diamanda Galás, Laurie Anderson, CocoRosie and Buffy Sainte-Marie while Marc Almond will present Marc and The Mambas’ Torment and Toreros.

Hegarty is no stranger to the festival, having performed at Patti Smith‘s Meltdown in 2005 and American Jazz composer Ornette Coleman’s in 2009. The Southbank’s artistic director, Jude Kelly, described Hegarty as “one of the most fascinating artists of our age”.

Meltdown runs from August 1 to 12. The line-up is as follows:
