Festival returns home to the City Of Iron in Ferropolis we can finally reveal the running order along with yet more new acts for the 2013 edition, which takes place from 19 – 21 July.
Montreal-based duo Blue Hawaii will bring spherical synth pop and intricate beat arrangements to the City of Iron on Friday, performing songs from their debut album ‘Untogether’. Then on Saturday, we’re in for an exclusive world premiere at Melt! when Modeselektor/Diamond Version Soundsystem will conquer the stage as the two acts get behind the DJ booth together for the first time ever.

We can’t wait to see what she has in store for the Melt! Festival crowd.
