MELT! Festival announces first acts for 2014




Preparations for this year’s Melt! Festival, which takes place from 18 – 20 July in Ferropolis, are well underway and with the first line-up being announced this week including Portishead, Röyksopp & Robyn, Moderat, Fritz Kalkbrenner, Haim, Metronomy and many more, it’s looking another strong year for them.

Portishead will be honouring them with an exclusive performance, since the mid-90s, the legendary Bristolian three-piece has been shaping the musical landscape, with the distinguished sound of debut ‘Dummy’ and the self-titled sophomore album. In 2008, Portishead returned with ‘Third’ and an exciting avant-garde approach, once more challenging the boundaries of contemporary music. 

Once again, Röyksopp and Robyn joined forces and went back into the studio together. Merging the best of both worlds and will make its Germany exclusive stopover. Add to that Moderat,  Fritz Kalkbrenner and glittery 80s pop sensation, Haim and the always superb Metronomy ahead of their fourth album, Love Letters.  Ellen Allien and her Bpitch crew will join the show once more, Innvervisions will celebrate its first special at Melt with label bosses Âme (DJ-Set) and Dixon plus Mano Le Tough, Marcus Worgull, Recondite (live), Kim Ann Foxman (DJ-Set), Erol Alkan B2B Daniel Avery, Boys Noize, Brodinski,  Ten Walls (live), Tensnake, Tiga and whole host of others!

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
