The 13 Acts You Can’t Miss At Melt! Festival 2017

We sifted through the massive lineup for Melt! Festival this weekend and compiled the highlights.

When Melt! Festival began 20 years ago, it provided a vision that was ahead of its time and laid the groundwork for today’s most beloved summer weekenders. Above all else, Melt! proved that large-scale, multi-day music events can be hugely popular without compromising on the bookings. Theirs have always provided a large range of stylistic offerings that spans from cutting-edge techno to savvy pop, but underground music remains the festival’s backbone. This year’s edition, which runs July 14-16, will showcase bigger acts like M.I.A., Sampha, and Richie Hawtin as well as stars (both established and rising) from the club scene like FJAAK, Sonja Moonear, rRoxymore and Michael Mayer. With so many acts to choose from, we thought it might be helpful to provide a few recommendations as to which performances you just shouldn’t miss.
