Some people get superstitious when it comes to number 13, but the organisers of the Melt! Festival decided to take this as chance to turn the supposedly jinx into their lucky charm and set up an even bigger line up.
In front of the unique backdrop of old mining and steal production facilities at the Ferropolis, the city of iron, you can this year enjoy epic acts including the likes of Groove Armada, Friendly Fires, Goldfrapp, Jamie T, Massive Attack, Chris Cunningham, Shout Out Louds, Simian Mobile Disco, Foals, Miike Snow, The XX and Yeasayer, to name just a few.
For this year they even made their own Melt! iPhone app for you to be up-to-date for the duration of the festival. It will give you access to the latest updates via push message and give you the chance to keep an eye on all stages in real time. You can even create a personalised running order which will be updated as well so that you always know when your favourite band is playing. Other features include an FAQ section, a festival map and a bus schedule.
3 day festival tickets cost 94 euros and are available on meltfestival.de
