Each year the Meltdown festival offers a guest director the chance to produce his or her own fantasy festival, mixing artists and artforms, reflecting their own personal passions and interests (as the event's producers put it) and with Perry being one of reggae's most influential and notoriously nonconformist pioneers, this year's line-up is likely to be fantastic.
"Hello folks, lovely peoples of 2003. I am looking far-word to this festivity," said Perry on the forthcoming event.
"We will celebrate with the music-makers from all over the world. Melting down sweet songs and evil beats. Love from the Open Door."
Previous curators have included David Bowie, John Peel and Elvis Costello.
