According to the organization, the 2016 edition will be larger and more heterogeneous than ever before, and line-up proves it: in the shadows of epically proportioned heavy machinery, you can catch the Melt! Stage, the festival’s biggest sounds loud and soft, shrill and serious. This year musicians like Disclosure, Tame Impala, M83, Deichkind, Chvrches, Jamie XX, or Boys Noize among others will perform here.
Melt! best play has long been its dance music, which can run as deep as the offerings at best underground clubs. The Big Wheel Stage, in a short distance to the water, will offer highlights of the full spectrum of electronic beats – from house to techno, the electro-hearts will not be disappointed. This year’s line-up includes Maceo Plex, The Black Madonna, Pan-Pot, Mano Le Tough, Ben Klock, Stephan Bodzin, and more. Similarly, one of the favoured places to dance is the Medusa Stage, located under a digger, where Mura Masa, Skepta, Digitalism, Peaches, Tiga, Bob Moses, Roosevelt or Sleaford Mods will perform.
Melt! Selektor, located in a former 30KV station control centre, will host top-class audiovisual happenings: Modeselektor, now an integral part of the Melt! Family, are bringing an other choice line-up to house: Acid Arab, Vessels, Gold Panda, Ho99o9, Kode9, and Lady Leshur, to name just a few.
This year’s sand and sun comes courtesy of Gremmin Beach. This platform will have Solomun, Stimming, Kollektiv Turmstraße, Maya Jane Coles, DJ Koze, Andhim or Horse Meat Disco.
