Melt! Festival 2013 James Murphy, Diiv, Simian Mobile Disco And More Join The Line-up

With less than 3 months to go before Germany's city of iron, Ferropolis, lights up once more with the sights and sounds of Melt! Festival, the line-up is almost complete. Established acts like Tricky, James Murphy and Simian Mobile Disco and newcomers Ruen Brothers and ABBY amongst the names revealed today, joining the exceptional collection of acts set to perform at the 16th edition of Melt! Festival.

Adding more weight to this year's Melt! Festival line-up, we're thrilled to announce an appearance by Tricky. The 'godfather of trip hop' will present us with his brand-new record, False Idols, which sees its release in May. James Murphy, the mastermind behind LCD Soundsystem, will also get behind the DJ booth in Ferropolis to win over the crowd with one of his acclaimed sets.

Brooklyn's DIIV will make their Melt! Festival debut this year, in one of only a handful of European tour dates the band will play this year. Also, making their first appearance at Melt! this year is German three-piece Sizarr, performing their debut album. Next up, a twosome who are no strangers to City of Iron, Simian Mobile Disco. After their celebrated stage show in 2010, the duo will get back behind the decks this time.  Siriusmo will also make a welcome return to Ferropolis this year, joining the Melt!Selektor Stage line-up.

A'rea Negrot (live), Shinedoe and Camea add to the Bpitch label special headlined by Ellen Allien. The Berlin-based band ABBY will be part of our Pre-Party on Thursday night. Also confirmed are: Hans Unstern, Feine Sahne Fischfilet, Monika Kruse, Adana Twins, Motor City Drum Ensemble, London Grammar, Anja Schneider, Benjamin Damage, Ruen Brothers, Alex.Do, Henning Baer and Discodromo.

This new wave of acts will join Atoms For Peace, The Knife, Azealia Banks, Churches, Disclosure, Jamie Jones, Flying Lotus, Alt-J, James Blake, Soulwax, Local Natives, Austra and many more, in what is set to be Melt's biggest edition to date. With today's confirmations, the 2013 line-up is almost complete. However, we still have ten more acts up our sleeve, which we will announce soon.

In case you're looking for the perfect festival accommodation that combines atmosphere yet doesn't lack luxurious amenities, our Prime Lodge is the right option for you.

Our Melt! MiXery Beds On Wheels Hotel Train has still a few seats left for you in case you want to travel to Ferropolis from Cologne or Munich. As usual, the train, your private accommodation for four nights, will stop directly in front of the festival grounds.
