The Establishing Shot: Ray Davies & Crouch End Festival Chorus Southbank Meltdown Preview

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Thursday, June 16, 2011

The Meltdown Festival is currently on at The Southbank Centre. But late last year I was lucky enough to be invited along to a once off preview performance for the 2011 Southbank Meltdown Festival by Ray Davies and The Crouch End Festival Chorus before Ray Davies took up the reins as the 2011 Director of Southbank Meltdown Festival.

We were treated to canapés and some wonderful winter drinks high in the Weston Roof Pavilion before heading downstairs to experience a musical legend along with the acclaimed Crouch End Festival Chorus put a spin on some of his classic hits.

We were treated to a whopping 29 song set list. The Chorus were held up by snow so they joined in for the second set.

Abut the Meltdown Festival
Since 1993 some of the world most distinguished musicians have been the guest directors of Meltdown. From John Peel through to Massive Attack, via David Bowie, Patti Smith, Morrissey and more, Meltdown has given seminal artists the chance to pick their favourite artists to play and exhibit their work at Southbank Centre.

The New York Dolls reunited for Morrissey; Jeff Buckley played his final UK show at Elvis Costello's Meltdown; Nick Cave, Grace Jones and Pete Doherty sang Disney songs with Jarvis Cocker; Patti Smith performed Horses in full for her Meltdown. This festival brings legendary artists to Southbank Centre for a very special week of one-off performances.
