In a press release, Christine and the Queens, aka Redcar, said: “I will indeed choose musicians who have a heartbreaking quality and I wish for all of us to walk around and be rejuvenated through artistic gestures over these ten days.” discoveries. The time Meltdown takes is quite exquisite, the richness also feels appropriately generous. We need this for ourselves, art in the city, art for the citizen, collective catharsis, a wonderful soul cleansing. I hope you will enjoy this glorious edition and once again, long live the burning poetry and the musicians who are crazy and brave enough to carry on – shaping the emotions of the future. Let’s thank them all!”
