It's all quiet on the Ferropolis peninsular. The giant diggers overlook wide open space, the lake lies eerily still and the flashing lights, booming music and buzzing throng of party people seem like a distant memory. Just a few months ago we celebrated the 14th edition of Melt! Festival in Ferropolis and we're happy to announce we've already started planning for 2012.
The 15th edition of Melt! Festival will take place from 13th - 15th July 2012. Melt! 2011 sold out in record time once again so we would like to give all our dedicated Melt! fans the chance to buy their 2012 tickets at 2011 prices. So on 1st October, the first 2,000 tickets will be on sale for 104 EUR plus a 5 EUR garbage deposit, exclusively via the Melt! website. Regular tickets for 2012 will go on sale straight afterwards for 110 EUR plus 5 EUR garbage deposit.
For a look back on all of the best bits of this year's event check out the Melt! Festival Highlights on Melt!TV. From Saturday you can also find our new panorama pictures of Melt! #14 on the Melt! Website giving you a 360 degree of various spots in Ferropolis.
Last but not least... Melt! festival is nominated for "Best Overseas Festival" in the the UK Festival Awards 2011. If you were there this year and had a top weekend with bands and acts such as Pulp, Robyn, Beady Eye, Crystal Castles, White Lies and more then show some love and vote for Melt! Of course, there's something in it for you a well: the Festival Awards' organisers arrange trips to all the winning festivals. It's you who decides whether Melt! Festival will be amongst the winning festivals or not! Your vote is much appreciated.
