Asian Dub Foundation have always been one of the world's great live acts and the only band to have been invited by three Meltdown festival directors to perform -David Bowie, Lee 'Scratch' Perry and Scott Walker.
Their most recent album 'History of Now' is a striking tour de force, driven by ADF's trademark adrenaline-fuelled intensity. The collaborators on this album come together here for this live show.
Asian Dub Foundation are joined by Nathan 'flutebox' Lee, Romany singer Kerieva, Chinese string players Chi 2, MC Skrien and the Ministry of Dhol.
With special guests Romay Featuring Ar8 Collexion.
AV concept by Jimmy Cauty (KLF) in his guise as the AV artist The One O'clock Club.
Plus stick around after the concert for The BEast ADF Afterparty in Level 2 Central Bar at Royal Festival Hall featuring Mammoth Sound, Naga MC, The Skellies, Caxton Press and a DJ set from Nerm (BBC 6Music, Shiva Soundsystem).
