Limitless parties in industrial setting: Melt 2021

At an award-winning location along Lake Gremmin, on the site of the former coal mine ‘Ferropolis’, you will find one of the most popular festivals in Germany. Welcome to Melt, where you’ll experience three days of ultimate freedom.

Although the festival is known for its appeal to underground electronic music lovers, every year the line-up also consists of great pop and urban artists – albeit always with an alternative twist. The stages are spread over the photogenic grounds, between towering excavators and industrial structures, but also in the forest and on the beach along the lake. Here you can cool off during the day and enjoy the finest chill spots. When the sun has set, colourful light installations take over and transform the festival site into a futuristic ‘Iron City’. After a long night, the real diehards continue their party at the Sleepless Floor, where you can literally dance non-stop for three days straight.
