MELT Festival

For 25 years, the hottest artists and bands in the world, and with them thousands of music enthusiasts, have come to a small town between Berlin and Leipzig. There, in the shadows of disused coal excavators, on the edge of a lake and in the middle of forests, they celebrate the diversity of music and culture together from Thursday to Sunday. Between quiet and loud, mainstream and subculture, zeitgeist and future, they dance together and escape everyday life.

More than 150 carefully selected artists and bands - Bicep (live), slowthai, Shygirl, southstar, Daphni, Solomun and many more - who are on the pulse of time, play the right soundtrack and offer space for excessive enjoyment and unique experiences. In a musical diversity that is unparalleled in Europe, they discover their new favorite acts and experience tomorrow today, the big in the small. Whether it's Fred Again.. and Little Simz, Jamie xx, Moderat, Stormzy or Jorja Smith: They've all left their mark on this place.

Stay tuned for what 2023 has in store for you. Stay tuned for MELT.
