Once again, the environment will be one of our most important headliners this year. In 2010, we already started our environmental endeavours with M!Eco. Together with the Green Music Initiative, we devoloped various projects to reduce CO2 emissions. Several bus and train offers as well as our hotel train, which rode to Ferropolis for the first time in 2010, made it possible that many festivalgoers decided to leave their cars at home. In 2011, we want to continue our projects. This year, energy-saving measures will be on our agenda as well! Further info will be available soon.
Post-punk meets dark wave with legitimate ambitions for stadium rock. With their latest single “Bigger Than Us”, the London-based White Lies presented us with a smashing anthem at the beginning of 2011 already. The band made quite an effort to up the ante production-wise in order to set the tone for the enthusiastic to melancholic lyrics. By releasing Rituals, the band around singer Harry McVeigh brought us the follow-up to their debut, which definitely keeps its promise.
No doubt, Digitalism is about to become a Melt! resident. Even before the actual festival the Hamburg duo Jens “Jence” Moelle and Ismail “Isi” Tüfekci join the Berlin-based Melt! Klub Weekender with squealing synth sounds, brute breaks, and belling bass lines. In Ferropolis, Digitalism has been part of Melt! Festival’s line-up three time. Thanks to brand-new material, the 2010 single “Blitz” as well as the uberhit “Zdarlight”, Digitalism will certainly fuel Melt! madness for the fourth time.
More Acts and News
With The Naked And Famous, we may have hit the spot. It doesn’t happen too often that a band is highly praised even before it releases its debut. We are very much excited about the New Zealanders’ live performance on their stopover in Saxony-Anhalt.
