If you are a fan of colourful lineups and post-industrial sceneries, Melt is your festival.
On its 22nd edition, the Germany’s Melt Festival takes place in Ferropolis from the 19th to the 21st of July 2019 and boasts a line up of top acts from the electronic, hip hop and rock international scene.
Every year, Melt! boasts an impressive lineup of international stars and newcomers. The final wave of artists includes names such as Modeselektor, David August, The Black Madonna, A$AP Rocky, Charlotte de Witte who will share the stage with Skepta, Bon Iver, Hessle Audio and many more.
The phenomenal setting of the festival will be the City of Iron, which has been home to Melt! since its inauguration in 1997. Giant industrial machines and steel structures will be the open air museum where the artists will play for three days with a beautiful scenic view overlooking lake Gremmin.
Ferropolis industrial complex is easily reachable via public transport from Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden or Chemnitz. In addition, the festival offers various buses and a convenient deal with their Flixbus partner to travel from multiple locations across Germany and Europe.
Regarding the accomodation, the festival has a partnership with hostels across the city center of Dessau from which a daily shuttle service brings festival goers to the grounds and back. Those who want to have a full experience of the festival can camp in the camping area, booking lodges and suites which come with cosy beds and electricity or purchasing pre-pitched tents.
This year Melt will have a special focus on environment and sustainability. That’s why they’ve created #fairopolis, an eco-friendly cross-festival playground based on sustainability, awareness and cooperation, where everybody will be able to enjoy themselves in the midst of festival madness. Yoga classes will be running at dawn and reading and talks will be part of the program in this oasis of peace and rest.
Last but not least, the Secret Garden of Porn will add a little bit of fun to the experience: this erotic forest created by #Pornceptual will be a safe ground for sexual exploration where djs, performers and queer pornography will lead you to a place for growing pleasures.
