First acts announced for Germany's Melt Festival

European festivals rock.

From the press release:

The first major confirmations for the 13th Melt! Festival at the wonderful and unique Ferropolis festival site in Gräfenhainichen, set against the breathtaking backdrop of five huge hulking coal mining diggers that tower into the sky. The festival runs from 16-18 July.

The grandmasters of TripHop, Massive Attack, will get the huge diggers at the "City of Iron" to vibrate under the influence of their bass-heavy Bristol sound. As another high-calibre headliner, we are very proud to announce The XX. Rest assured that the aesthetic overall concept of the British trio fits perfectly into the Melt! scenery. Booka Shade will present their new album 'More!' at Melt! and they promise that 'There will be a lot of physical action and sweat on the stage'.
