From Southbank Centre:

Experience the unexpected, unusual and eclectic this June in Jarvis Cocker’s Meltdown festival, where the UK pop icon curates his own eight-day festival across the venues and spaces of Southbank Centre. Armed with a sharp wit, an acid tongue and a talent for capturing the moment with razor sharp lyrics, Jarvis Cocker is one of today’s best-loved rock stars. The festival opens with sets from Motorhead and Melanie and ends with a show from Jarvis himself, taking in performances from The Jesus and Mary Chain, Iggy & The Stooges and many more along the way.

If it is Jarvis himself that you are interested in, you’ll be stoked to know that he will be taking a little tour after this festival is complete. He will also be on the South Bank Show on June 10th. He will be discussing his role in Pulp, what is was like dealing with the fame, and his experiences as an “outsider” in music. The show will have video footage from his concert, and Paris where he lives and writes songs currently.
