After dancing below the open sky the whole night until dawn, seeing the sun rise behind a colourful steel machinery which turns the lake into a wonderful light, when the modern indie-heart is finally melting with the hysterical awesome beat of the present and all arms are lifted into the air, then you will certainly experience this special Melt!-feeling, the energy of one of the most extraordinary and avantgardistic Open Air Festivals in Germany.
Three days of stage-hopping discovering highlight upon highlight. Three days of dancing till you drop, yet returning home blissfully. Three days of celebrating with thousands of strangers feeling like you‘re amongst friends. That’s Melt! for you in a nutshell.
In July, the City of Iron comes to life once more. Carefully selected international musicians arrive in Ferropolis with thousands of fans following their call to dance. Where tranquil tunes are played during the day, roaring bass and smashing beats reign at night. Established acts meet the latest newcomer.
Indie meets electro, techno, and everything else that keeps your feet moving. Close to the quaint village of Gräfenhainichen, beneath impressive relics of the brown coal era, where genres become obsolete, it is real to all of us: a unique Melt! feeling.
For the 15th time, this feeling brings together enthusiastic music lovers creating a microcosm of limitless festival euphoria. Melt! Festival’s international relevance is underlined by a Live Entertainment Award (»Best Festival 2009«) and two European Festival Award (»Artist’s Favourite European Festival 2010«, »Green ’n’ Clean Festival Of The Year 2011«). About one third of our 20,000 visitors come to Ferropolis from abroad, and press people from 30 countries, from every continent, come together tofind what can’t be found anywhere else.
