Melt! Festival 2019

Melt! Festival continues to stand for diversity in its approach to presenting a wide variety of music and experiences to fans of all genres.

Spanning from mainstage headliners such as Jorja Smith and Slowthai, to label takeovers of the Sleepless Floor with Hessle Audio all day on Sunday, there’s plenty for everyone to get stuck into. With the famous Sleepless Floor running non-stop throughout the Festival programming alongside world-class DJs at the Forest and Big Wheel stages, the choices were never easy, but we hope you enjoy some of our picks.

Octo Octa @ The Big Wheel Sunday 19:00 – 21:30 pm

Octo Octa’s set was a highlight of the festival. Playing on the Sunday evening to an audience already primed by a full weekend of raving, her raucous selections set against the backdrop of the dystopian Big Wheel Stage, lent her set an end-of-the-world-party vibe, reminiscent of something out of Mad Max.
