A flickering sea of lights, pulsating beats and beaming faces as far as the eye can see – the City of Iron awakes again. Three days of pure musical euphoria lie ahead of us in July. Hot newcomers and international heroes grace the stages below the breathtaking coal mining diggers of days gone by, hosting debaucherous gigs and parties breaking the boundaries between quiet and loud, electro, hip hop and indie, mainstream and subculture.
Melt! started out as a small stronghold for rave lovers and techno enthusiasts at the quaint Bernsteinsee Velten in 1997, relocating to Lärz Airport in 1998 until it turned Ferropolis into a shining beacon of light in 2000 and became a major force on the international festival circuit.
