Our Norwegian photographer Thor Møller had enough of the cold and rainy Norwegian summer so he headed south to Germany last weekend to check out the Melt! festival, one of the biggest open air festivals for electronic music in Germany. After Santigold kicked off the festival on their intro day on Thursday Tove Lo was first up in the festival’s main stage on Friday.

As the sun was setting Jamie xx drew a large crowd down at the beach stage. Arms were waving, beach balls where flowing in the air and the mid-twentieth century mining machines were seemingly coming alive as the night fell. Up next on the main stage was Mogwai who mesmerized the crowd with all their post-rockishness before La Roux took center stage at the festival’s tent stage.

The usually quiet open air museum that is Ferropolis had fully been transformed into a see of flickering lights, and flames were lighting up the night sky from the top of the heavy machinery as Nils Frahm entered the main stage to perform nothing short of musical black magic on his multitude of pianos before Flume ended the night on the same stage.

Seeing as Melt! never really stops until Monday and it was merely Saturday morning it was time to head over to the Gemini stage where Hudson Mohawke kept the crowd going with his low-end beats. As the sun was once more rising over the “City of Iron” A-trak reminded us why he is indeed a world renown DJ and thus, ending the night—or morning—whatever you call it going home to sleep at 6am.
