Highsnobiety / Julien Tell

This past weekend, Highsnobiety linked up with Germany’s Melt Festival for our first ever on-site activation. It was a match made in heaven, to say the least. Over the course of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we were on the ground in Ferropolis, coming to you live and direct with interviews with some of your faves. We even had a T-shirt cannon firing out a selection of exclusive Highsnobiety merch for lucky festival-goers.

On Friday, we took in live performances from Tyler, the Creator, The Internet, Yung Hurn, Kali Uchis, and more, as you can see in the gallery above. At our Highsnobiety by Day Stage, we hosted a DJ set from mega production duo Christian Rich, and chatted to Estonian rapper Tommy Cash as well as Ukranian DJ Nastia. We even took you through a tour of the beachside festival site. Check out Friday’s highlights below.

Saturday had us losing our minds to Fever Ray’s incredible performance on the mainstage, featuring Berlin’s finest drag queens outfitted in vagina headpieces. We also took in sets from Alma, Coely, and Mavi Phoenix, and were lucky enough to squeeze in chats with all three artists! Music Editor Jake Boyer had a beachside pow-wow with Finnish singer-songwriter Alma, while he later took to the stage to interview rising Austrian pop/rap star Mavi Phoenix. Meanwhile, with Coely, Associate Music Editor Bianca Giulione talked the Belgian rap scene and gave her a special tarot card reading. Ticklish from Berlin’s Live from Earth crew absolutely smashed our Highsnobiety by Day stage with his closing DJ set. Watch the best of Saturday below.

Finally on Sunday, Highsnobiety Sound System held down the DJing fort, and we caught performances by Fischerspooner, Princess Nokia, Little Dragon, Badbadnotgood, and more. We managed to sit down with three members of Little Dragon, and last but not least, chatted with superproducer Mura Masa about his collaborations with A$AP Rocky, Charli XCX, Octavian and more. Peep everything that went down on Sunday below.
