On a peninsula located 20km away from Dessau, Ferropolis is the ‘City Of Iron’, and host to the annual Melt! Festival. Since 1999, the festival has expanded in size, scope and sound, quite befitting for an event with such a beguilingly industrial backdrop of hulking machines. These ghosts of manufacturing don’t mean environmental ignorance, though, as Melt! leads the way in terms of conscientiousness towards mobility, energy and recycling. Its staggeringly impressive line-up is still being added to, but already showcases a perfect formula for fusing outstanding alt-rock talent with galvanizing, electro/dance artists.
You can buy tickets here. Or, alternatively, enter our competition! Clash has a number of tickets to give away in pairs for this year’s Melt!, which is rather super. Now, the prize is tickets only – you’ll have to get to Germany, and cover any other costs outside of the actual ticket price. Also, this is for over-18s only. Because nine-year-olds are into Four Tet, obviously.
