Preparations for this year’s Melt! Festival, which takes place from 18 to 20 July in Ferropolis, are well underway. Recently awarded Best Medium-Sized Festival, the organization already announced the first acts for 2014. Portishead will be honouring us with an exclusive performance under the Ferropolis night sky this year. Since the mid-90s, the legendary Bristolian three-piece has been shaping the musical landscape, capturing the zeitgeist with the distinguished sound of debut Dummy and the self-titled sophomore album. In 2008, Portishead returned with Third and an exciting avant-garde approach, once more challenging the boundaries of contemporary music.
Once again, Röyksopp and Robyn joined forces and went back into the studio together. Merging the best of both worlds, Röyksopp & Robyn Do It Again 2014 will make its Germany exclusive stopover at Melt! this year.
Last year, only a few weeks before the release of their second album, Moderat II, Moderat got behind the decks at our Melt!Selektor Stage. After having almost completely sold out their upcoming tour, you’ll get another chance to see them live in Ferropolis this summer. We’re also delighted to welcome Fritz Kalkbrenner back to the fold, one of the Melt! enthusiasts since day one. Arriving from the UK, Metronomy will be presenting their fourth album, Love Letters. The Melt!Selektor Stage as well as resident Ellen Allien and her Bpitch crew will join us once more while the directional house imprint, Innvervisions, will celebrate its first special with label bosses Âme (DJ-Set) and Dixon plus Mano Le Tough, Marcus Worgull, Recondite (live), Kim Ann Foxman (DJ-Set) and more.
