Melt!, one of the largest open-air electronic music festivals in Germany, confirmed 30 more acts for its three-day event in the Ferropolis open-air museum. The new wave of high-calibre artists include Tame Impala, Jean-Michel Jarre, Modeselektor, Andy C, The Black Madonna, Floating Points, Mind Against, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Oddisee & Good Company, Pan-Pot, Stephan Bodzin, Tiga, Bob Moses, Circa Waves, Dj Phono, Drangsal, Graham Candy, Helena Hauff, Isolation Berlin, Horse Meat Disco, Kim Ann Foxman, Kytes, Lea Porcelain “Official”, Say Yes Dog, Stimming, VRIL, and Woman.
Melt! was born as a “small stronghold for rave lovers and techno enthusiasts” in 1997. The next year, the event relocated from the quaint Bernsteinsee Velten to Lärz Airport until, in 2000, Melt! transformed Ferropolis into a beacon as it became a major force on the international festival circuit. Today, it is one of Europe’s most distinctive rock and pop festivals.
The festival’s three highly anticipated days of musical euphoria launch in July as hot newcomers and international stars unleash their musical power on the stages. From July 15 to 17, fans stay cool down by swimming in the lake by day and experiencing the “madness” of the open-air mining site at nightfall. The festival breaks boundaries between quiet and loud, electro and hip hop mainstream and subculture with a flickering sea of lights and pulsating beats.
Buy tickets to join 20,000 global music lovers and ravers dancing for 3 days on 10 floors and 3 beaches.
