Ornette Coleman at Meltdown
6th April 2009
Pulitzer Prize winner, Ornette Coleman, who has a long standing relationship with Music Sales, has been named by the Southbank Centre as the curator of the 2009 Meltdown Festival. The annual event this year will run from June 13 – 21. Since its inception 16 years ago, the Meltdown Festival has become one of the most anticipated events of the year, and offers the guest director the opportunity to create their own personal festival revealing some of their interests and influences.
The festival's eclectic mix of music, art, performance and film brings together a diverse range of artists, resulting in unique collaborations and historic one-off events. Coleman will perform in at least two concerts.
