Melt Festival – SOLD OUT

A unique music festival on the Ferropolis peninsula, Melt! is set against a breathtaking backdrop of five huge hulking coal mining diggers that tower into the sky. With such a great location and exciting, eclectic line up, it’s no wonder Melt! is sold out and is  one of the ‘must do’ festivals of the summer. Melt! was also named the ‘Artists Favourite Festival’ in the Festival Awards Europe 2011 and is continuing to grow in popularity.  Long live Melt!

Melt! Anthem
Here is a link to  this years Melt! anthem (, which is available for free. We won’t tell you who wrote it, but we go way back. Another clue might be our slogan “U Melt! My Heart”.

Melt! Pre-Party 
The Audiolith crew’s parking lot raves have been an integral part of the Melt! cosmos since always. They had always been the perfect but unofficial opening party of Melt! Festival till last year. Then the boys officially came on board. Since the pre-party got bigger and bigger, we simply moved the debauchery from the parking lot to the Intro Zelt so we wouldn’t disturb the neighbours too much. In 2011, the pre-party will once again be held on Thursday night (14th July) with an obvious Audiolith presence. Frittenbude will conquer the stage together with Egotronic, Mediengruppe Telekommander are about to perform songs off their new album (a Audiolith/Staatsakt collaboration), various Audiolith DJs will fuel Melt! madness among the crowd and a secret special guest is also going to show up. Once again, the pre-party’s capacity is limited. Like last year, you have to pay a EUR 5 cover charge (incl. fees), which will be partially donated to charity. Tickets for our pre-party are only available as etickets here ( in combination with a festival ticket only.  
Ticket holders, who want to enjoy our Melt! pre-party, should also act fast as well and buy their tickets here. There might not be any tickets available on location. last year’s pre-party was sold out. So if you want make sure that you actually get in, we urge you to buy your ticket in advance. 
Melt! Train 
Our hotel train rides again! Last year, our beds on wheels option for Melt! premiered. In 2011, a train will ride once more to the festival site in Ferropolis as part of our environmental project M!Eco. The last 100 Melt! Train tickets are also still available here; for ticket holders and those of you who don’t have tickets yet. This is your last chance to get hold of a festival ticket!

In collaboration with Cool-Tours ( and MixeryFunTravel (, we charter a Euro Express train, which will depart from Cologne. The train is stopping directly in front of the festival grounds. The best thing about it: every passenger will have his or her own private bed on Melt! Train including sanitary arrangements for four days. To assure that only Hotel Train passengers have access to their departments, special wristbands will be handed out. 

One compartment of the train is also equipped with its own DJ and a bar run by Cool-Tours. The bar will be open during the journey as well as during the day on location. New this year: Cool-Tours offers daily breakfast for EUR 19, which can be ordered in advance or on arrival. Train attendants will care for your needs the entire journey. 

Return journey plus four overnight stays will cost you EUR 99 (per person, festival ticket not included). To guarantee that you will be booked in a compartment with all your friends (up to six), one of you has to book single tickets for all the others. So if you book a compartment with six beds this will cost you EUR 594. 

Book your ticket via Cool-Tours here ( Further info on eco-friendly travel options to Melt! will be posted here ( soon.
