Thursday, May 10th, 2018



Unfortunately, P.O.D. is forced to cancel their show at #GMM18. This resulted in a few line-up changes on Saturday. Metalcore fans rejoice because melodic metalcore outfit Our Hollow, Our Home will be kicking things off at the Jupiler Stage, while Stray From The Path will open Main Stage 2 on Saturday. Backyard Babies will open Main Stage 1 and Vixen will go one spot up!

15 NEW NAMES for Graspop 2017

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017



A new year, new names for the five stages at Graspop Metal Meeting 2017. Joining the bill for the 22nd edition are: A Day to Remember, Amenra, Architects, Brides of Lucifer, Crown The Empire, Every Time I Die, Gojira, King’s X, Like A Storm, Mastodon, MAX & IGGOR CAVALERA – RETURN TO THE ROOTS, Metal Church, Sabaton, Touché Amoré en W.A.S.P. Rammstein, Deep Purple and Evanescence have already been announced as the headliners.
In 2017, Graspop Metal Meeting premiers a new diabolical super group: Brides Of Lucifer, a remarkable collaboration between the Kolacny brothers (Scala), Koen Buyse (Zornik) and Ives Mergaerts. A metal band fronted by 20 women – an almighty clash between driving guitars and blood curdling vocals. Or, in other words: Scala goes metal!
Graspop Metal Meeting is also proud to add Brazilian metal legends Max and Iggor Cavalera to the line-up with their RETURN TO ROOTS tour. The brothers are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the legendary Sepultura album ‘Roots’, to be played in its entirety on Saturday June 17 in the Marquee!
On Sunday 18 June – closing the festival with violently explosive guitars, flashing shades, thundering drums, addictive melodies and a two-ton tank – is: Sabaton! Out-and-out audience favourites at the Graspop Metal Meeting. It’s their sixth appearance on stage in Dessel. If you’re a fan, get dressed for the occasion, because it’s your last chance to see Sweden’s warriors Sabaton before their long and well-earned sabbat(on)ical from concert stages in Europe.
The bill is filling nicely for Graspop Metal Meeting 2017. It’s about rock; it’s about roar. A weekend of blistering guitars, big bad drums and deep grunting. 82 great names have already been confirmed. More to come soon.
