Melt! Festival is back for 2013 and already the line up is shaping up to be another smasher. First acts announced include The Knife, Alt-J, James Blake, Solomon, Flying Lotus, Azealia Banks, Mount Kimbie, Django Django, Disclosure, Modeselektor and many many more. Melt! Festival, which takes place from 19 to 21 July, announces the first wave of acts for 2013 with 60+ artists to perform on the peninsula of Ferropolis close to Gräfenhainichen, Germany.
Among those confirmed to date we can emphasize the visit of the Swedish siblings The knife with Shaking The Habitual and their exclusive performance at Melt! 2013. The New York-based rapper Azealia Banks will perform her only show in Germany in Ferropolis this year. Further acts to appear at Melt! for the first time are Solomun and Flying Lotus. With video presentation of this year we can see what they are preparing.
For the fourth time, Modeselektor will curate the Melt!Selektor Stage. As a very special highlight, Modeselektor will get behind the decks together with Apparat to give us a glimpse of the new Moderat album. The Berlin-based electro label Get Physical will take over the Sleepless Floor with a label special and the following acts: M.A.N.D.Y., Wankelmut, Catz ‘N Dogz, Andhim and Smash TV (live). Take this opportunity to remember Modeselektor‘s set at Melt! Festival last year.
It wouldn’t be a proper festival without Ellen Allien‘s Bpitch crew ringing in the final hours at the nonstop stage with a Bpitch Special. Also Crosstown Rebels label will be at Ferropolis, celebrating 10 years of label history with a Rebel Rave at the Big Wheel Stage and artists as Damian Lazarus, Art Department, Jamie Jones, and further special guests are scheduled to appear. Plus more than 120 acts on 6 stages, will be announced shortly.
