Little history of Melt! Festival
Back in 1997, 1,000 festival partiers gathered at another town, Velten, at the birth of Melt! Festival.
Two years later, organizers found the perfect setting: the City of Iron – Ferropolis, jutting out onto Lake Gremmin.
This German techno and rave festival paved the road for a super-charged gathering of musicians and artists from across the globe.
In 2008, the festival was extended to three days with Björk taking the stage on Melt’s first ever festival Sunday.
In 2016, the site was expanded with an open-air cinema as well as a ‘Forest‘ equipped with a treehouse, hammocks and of course, a dance floor.
How to get there
Ferropolis is about an hour southwest of Berlin.
Organizers recommend you to take the train to Dessau, Gräfenhainichen or Wittenberg.
From there, they have a shuttle service which takes you to the festival grounds.
