Melt! Festival


Who Made Who

This year the Melt! Festival takes place for the 12th time, somewhere in the East German countryside, in a disused coal mine, a rather unusual venue for a festival. The location is Gräfenhainichen, near Dessau. Surrounded by gigantic cranes you can dance in front of the various stages and on the dancefloors. The place is called Ferropolis – the city of steel – because of the huge industrial machines standing around in the former coal mine. The festival’s camping area is located next to Gremminer See from where you can see those huge coal cranes that are illuminated by coloured lights when it gets dark and take a bath if it’s too hot.
