Portishead, Röyksopp & Robyn, Moderat, Fritz Kalkbrenner, Haim, Metronomy and many more artists to perform in front of the industrial backdrop of Ferropolis from July 18 - 20.
Preparations for this year's Melt! Festival, which takes place from July 18 - 20 in Ferropolis, are well underway.
If you're a Portishead fan, you're in luck - as they're playing an exclusive set. Since the mid-90s, the legendary Bristolian three-piece has been shaping the musical landscape, capturing the zeitgeist with the distinguished sound of debut Dummy and the self-titled sophomore album. In 2008, Portishead returned with Third and an exciting avant-garde approach, once more challenging the boundaries of contemporary music.
Once again, Röyksopp and Robyn have joined forces and went back into the studio together. Merging the best of both worlds, Röyksopp & Robyn Do It Again 2014 will make its Germany exclusive stopover at Melt! this year. An energetic blast of Scandinavian electro pop is coming your way.
Last year, only a few weeks before the release of their second album, Moderat II, Moderat got behind the decks on the Melt!Selektor Stage. After having almost completely sold out their upcoming tour, you'll get another chance to see them live in Ferropolis this summer. Fritz Kalkbrenner is coming back to the fold, one of the Melt! enthusiasts since day one. Dragging glittery 80s pop into the 21st century, Haim will be travelling all the way from sunny LA to the Melt! peninsula.
Plus, Metronomy will be presenting their fourth album, Love Letters. The Melt!Selektor Stage, as well as resident Ellen Allien and her Bpitch crew, will join us once more. Finally, the directional house imprint, Innvervisions, will celebrate its first special with label bosses Âme (DJ-Set) and Dixon plus Mano Le Tough, Marcus Worgull, Recondite (live), Kim Ann Foxman (DJ-Set) and more.
