Back in December, Germany’s famed Melt festival dropped a little taste of their 2017 lineup, with names like Die Antwoord, the Kills, Phoenix, Dixon, Marcel Dettman, Âme b2b Rødhåd, and Bonobo all featured. Now, the festival has unveiled its huge second wave of acts…one that needs to be seen (or, in this case, read) to be believed!

First up is the ever-thrilling provocateur MIA (!), alongside Solange collaborator Sampha, who will bring his debut LP “Process”. Lil Silva, Kamasi Washington, Dave, and a Soulelection label showcase also highlight the urban side of things.

As for dance music, well, across Melt’s multiple dance stages will beRichie Hawtin, Maceo Plex, Tale of Us, MK, Modeselektor, Ben Frost (Live), Denis Sulta, Agoria, Jennifer Cardini, TiNI, Modeselektor, Egyptian Lover, Dixon, Claptone, Job Jobse, Kölsch (DJ) and Michael Mayer.

Furthermore, Melt’s beloved forest area will proudly raise the rainbow flag with its idyllic cottage, hammocks, new swimming spot, and chill-out areas full of nooks and crannies set against music from Andy Butler (who will DJ, as well as perform with Hercules & Love Affair) and Kiddy Smile.

Still with more lineup to go, there’s virtually no reason for any self respecting music fan to not put Melt high on their annual festival calendars. Check the complete information and ticket info below.
