The iron city that never sleeps

Melt Festival is an iconic rock and pop festival in Germany. Set amongst a former coal mine, the industrial iron structures combine with the natural lake to form a stunning backdrop to the various stages.

Known for its 'all night' ethos, the festival keeps the music going 24/7, with the Sleepless Floor providing a home for the most intrepid music-lovers. Alongside this, the larger stages run until 7am, with huge international talent keeping attendees on their toes.

Previous names to take to the stages include Sven Väth, Kylie Minogue, Disclosure, Tame Impala, CHVRCHES, Andy C, Jamie xx, M83, Ben Klock, Septa, SBTRKT, James Blake, Azealia Banks, alt-J, Metronomy and countless others.
