Yoko Ono's Meltdown: Julianna Barwick
Celebrating her 80th birthday in 2013, worldwide cultural icon Yoko Ono has been confirmed as the director of Southbank Centre's Meltdown Festival 2013.
Bringing a lifetime of achievement in music, visual art and peace activism to Southbank Centre, Yoko Ono's Meltdown (14 – 23 June 2013) will be led by the artist's dedication to environmentalism, feminism and peace.
For 20 years Meltdown has invited internationally renowned musicians to create once-in-a-lifetime experiences at Southbank Centre. Tasking artists to take over the 21-acre artistic site, Meltdown is renowned for unique events and artist led programming, from Jeff Buckley's final UK show to the New York Dolls reuniting, and the first solo performance in fifteen years from Cocteau Twins' Elizabeth Fraser.
Yoko Ono is no stranger to the festival, having performed as part of Ornette Coleman's Meltdown in 2009, and her return for the 2013 festival promises to have 10 days of not-to-be missed performances. The programme includes a performance of 'Double Fantasy', John Lennon and Yoko Ono's final album, performed live on Sunday 23rd.

Julianna Barwick is an American musician who was born in Louisiana and raised in Missouri. She currently lives in Brooklyn. Her music is built around multiple loops and layers of her voice. Barwick, who credits a rural, church choir upbringing for her sound, begins most tracks with a single phrase or refrain, then uses a loop station and the occasional piano or percussive instrument to build the song into a swirling mass of lush, ambient folk.
