Yoko Ono's Meltdown: Iggy & The Stooges + Savages
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.

Today's legion of raw bluesy primal rock bands owe it all to the Stooges. Their wild stage shows and trademark sound lasted just over five years (between 1967 and 1973), gaining them little commercial success but a massive cult fanbase. After the group split, frontman Iggy Pop became famous as a solo artist, and this led to more interest in his old band. The Stooges finally reformed in 2003, and amazingly are still able to capture the frenzied youthful excitement of their original live shows.
Iggy & The Stooges tour dates
Savages are a London based four-piece, combining a mixture of guitars with a groovy nu wave / punk rhythmic session. They have subsequently been compared to the great post punk bands of the 1980s, Joy Division and Magazine to name but a few.
Gemma Thompson's ability to wrap her guitar solo around the hypnotic bass of Ayse Hassan and intertwine with the rest of the band before splitting off, all within the space of a few seconds, this pulled together with the awesome energy of Jehnny Beth who has been likened to Joe Strummer.
