Melt Festival 2019 – The Sleepless Floor Solomun Takeover + pre-party with Bonobo announced
Melt, the Mad Max inspired post-industrial festival mecca, announces a very specialSleepless Floor programme from 18 – 21 July 2019.
Of all the Melt stages, The Sleepless Floor is the one that has received the most notoriety, ‘passing into rave lore’ in the words of Crack Magazine. A bastion of electronic music in all its forms, and one of the few arenas that still embodies early dance music’s rave spirit, The Sleepless Floor is for the most hardened ravers, famously running non-stop for the full 90 hours of the duration of the festival.
In 2019, Melt are bringing one of the world’s most respected DJs back to Ferropolis to take over the iconic arena: Solomun. With a career spanning over a decade, the Israeli DJ is not afraid of taking audiences on a journey through vigour, depth and emotion. Whether running his two labels, (Diynamic, 2DIY4), his Ibiza residencies (Solomun+1 at Pacha, Solomun+LIVE at Ushuaia) or the Diynamic Radio show, which is broadcasted to over 30 countries, Solomun’s work can be unified with a central theme: his unbridled passion for music.
He will be bringing Dubfire, one of the most beloved producers in minimal today, to The Sleepless Floor along with some very special guests from his label TBA.
Also announced: for this year’s warm-up party on Thursday 18th July, Melt Festival have confirmed none other than purveyor of masterful, beautiful and emotive electronica,Bonobo (DJ Set), Bulgarian techno maestro KiNK, Pampa mainstay Mano Le Tough, Saxony-born, Berlin-based eclectic DJ Perel and rising star Sally C.

A former coal mine that is home to a number of enormous cranes and towering diggers, the machines create a truly spectacular backdrop for post-industrial raving – a German speciality.
