Robert Smith has announced the artists he has curated for this year's Meltdown festival.
The Cure frontman has brought together some of the most influential artists of the last 40 years, who will perform at the Southbank Centre in London from June 15 - 24.
Included on the lineup are stadium and arena-filling acts: Deftones, The Libertines, Manic Street Preachers, Mogwai, My Bloody Valentine, Placebo and The Pschadelic Furs.
Smith said: "Curating this 25th Meltdown festival is a dream come true, a fantastic experience... albeit getting 60 wonderful artists, including many of my all time favourites, to come together for 10 days in June is not without its challenges - as one of my predecessors noted, it ios akin to figuring out a giant psychadelic puzzle.
"But as each invitee confirms, as each shimmering piece falls into place, I pinch myself - this is really happening... and the complete picture will undoubtedly be out of this world!"
