Patti Smith has put together this year's Meltdown Festival which takes place in London. I think her themes and selections are excellent. If I was extremely weathly (instead of just plain wealthy - which I am ) I would fly in for the show. The same goes for last year's Morrissey themed Meltdown - to see Sparks....That would have been amazing!

If I had to go to only one event - I think it would be the tribute to Brecht night. But really, the whole series sounds great. Yoko Ono too - totally fab!

This is her schedule & ticket info:

Yoko Ono (Queen Elizabeth Hall, June 17)
