Melt 2012 – Arrival

This is the 8th Melt! festival in a row for me. During the last years I have constantly worked as an artist host, taking care of Goldie, Deichkind, Bloc party and many many more. This year, for the first time, I will “only” be a guest. I’ll probably feel strange and look for some beer crates to carry around anyway.

Since I do not have to wear a walkie talkie and run around super busy I actually spent a minute thinking about the right style and what to wear. Inspired by Milenskaya and her festvival styleguide I thought about what could be my sailors hat. Could I combine a horn around my neck with motto shirts like “honk for a hug”, “honk if you’re hot”? We’ll see how that goes.

I am also curious to see if the friday will be costume day like last year. I saw lots of fairies, superheroes and nurses.

Anyway, I am looking forward to 5 days filled with music, people and party!! Here’s the festival trailer:
