"Curator Robert Smith closes the 25th Meltdown festival with an exclusive show at Royal Festival Hall, with support from The Twilight Sad.

He is joined onstage by four of his curious friends – and other, imaginary accompanists – to perform special interpretations based on a very particular selection of songs he has sung throughout the years."
