Since 1993 some of the world most distinguished musicians have been the guest directors of Meltdown. Each year the festival chooses an established music artist or act as director of the event and they pick the performers of their choosing.

Rumours

Due to the interests of the curator, many predict the theme to be peace activist related, focusing on issues such as environmentalism and feminism.

Lineup

2013 - Yoko Ono is set to curate the event, an artist and widow of John Lennon, she is said to be "deeply honoured" to be directing the festival's 20th anniversary.
