Description:
Melt! 2011 – the metamorphosis begins again. When a sea of lights covers the spectacular steel giants, melodies rise into the sky, when rhythms emerge from underneath the diggers, and you see bright eyes wherever you go, the time has come. Pure magic is taking over; a particular magic, imaginable in the City of Iron only. Close to the quaint village of Gräfenhainichen, something extraordinary is happening. Ferropolis is on fire! Indie meets electro, loudness joins tranquillity, pop culture melts with subculture, and guitar riffs amplify techno beats. Surrounded by Gremmin Lake, beneath impressive relics of the brown coal era, it becomes so very real for all of us: a particular Melt! feeling. For the 14th time, this feeling brings together enthusiastic music lovers, and merges countless genres to a microcosm of limitless festival euphoria. Limitless in the true sense of the word: Melt! Festival’s international relevance is underlined by a Live Entertainment Award («Best Festival 2009») as well as a European Festival Award («Artist’s Favourite European Festival») for the 2010 edition. About one third of our 20,000 visitors come to Ferropolis from abroad, and press people from 30 countries, from every continent, come together to find what can’t be found anywhere else. Welcome to Melt!
