This year, M.I.A has been asked to curate the UK-based Meltdown festival, which takes over the Southbank Centre from June 9-18. Now, the first round of names have been announced.

As of now, the line-up includes artists like Young Fathers, Mr. Eazi, Yung Lean, Young M.A and Dexta Daps, making it a global event.

"I hope you rate my curating. I'm happy and honoured to be a part of Meltdown amongst important artists who have contributed to keeping it real in the past," M.I.A said. "I’m bringing together new outlaw musicians from everywhere, who have all contributed to keeping things weird, exciting, opinionated, loud, emotional, brave or off the grid in the present climate. It's a layered ten days of creative ideas, curated out of wanting to know these artists as well as knowing their art well. Hopefully, my contribution fills these summer days with vibez, wild ruckus, controlled chaos and good times, with a touch of education - working together to break boundaries with clashing identities, beliefs, styles and sexualities. Welcome to London, Summer 2017."
