Melt Festival is a rock, electronic and pop festival, that exists within the imposing grounds of the Ferropolis; a museum of titanic mid-20th-century industrial machinery located just outside Gräfenhainichen.

In tandem with this unique location dubbed “the city of iron” also sees a unique lineup year-on-year, with career-defining sets from Portishead, Aphex Twin, alt-J, Kylie Minogue, The XX, Tame Impala, Bon Iver, and Florence + the Machine in previous editions.

Amongst the impressive roster of acts, there is the notorious and affectionately known ‘Sleepless Floor’, which keeps the partying constant during the three day festival, but also the nearby Lake Gremmin to check out the sunrise over the horizon, when you’re finally feeling partied-out.

Merging industrial history, culture, and nature, there’s something for every type of festival-goer at Melt. The iconic home of Melt is a recovered opencast coal mine in the east of Germany, between Leipzig and Berlin. The site’s towering cranes and iron machinery give Ferropolis its name, as well as furnishing the festival with a memorable backdrop.
