"Collaboration, innovation and a spirit of non-conformism are central to his approach," said the Southbank Centre of Lavelle.

"James is working with young people to curate the programme, meaning that this very special Meltdown will further his commitment to mobilising the next generation to become the inventors of their own culture."

Both Meltdown and Lavelle's record label Mo'Wax mark their 21st year in 2014 and the festival will include the Southbank Centre's interactive exhibition Mo'Wax21: Urban Archaeology.

As well as being part of UNKLE, Lavelle has previously worked with Queens of the Stone Age, Massive Attack, Nick Cave and Thom Yorke.

The full line-up of James Lavelle's Meltdown will be announced in early 2014
