Metalheads.. brace yourselves, Graspop Metal Meeting have announced Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath & Volbeat as headliners for 2016 Edition.
As informed before, Many were sceptical when Danish heavy metal band Volbeat first headlined GMM two years ago. It’s unusual to have such a young band top the bill at a metal festival but a blistering show in the pouring rain convinced even the biggest critics. Michael Poulsen’s signature vocals and the band’s trademark mix of classic rock, punk, rockabilly and metal set the arena ablaze. We are pleased to announce that Denmark’s favourite heavy rock gangsters are coming back next year to add another notch to their GMM belt.
VOLBEAT fits in nicely with the rest of our impressive list of headliners. BLACK SABBATH and KING DIAMOND are the main acts on Friday 17 June, VOLBEAT is our first headliner for Saturday 18 June, and IRON MAIDEN & TWISTED SISTER will close the 21st edition of Graspop Metal Meeting on Sunday 19 June. When Black Sabbath announced their retirement in early 2015, the farewell tour initially included dates in North America, Australia and New Zealand. With their appearance at GMM2016 now confirmed, the band’s European fans can rest easy: frontman Ozzy Osbourne, Tommy Iommi and Geezer Butler are headlining Graspop Metal Meeting on Friday 17 June 2016.
It was announced earlier that IRON MAIDEN will be headlining on Sunday 19 June. Heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN will be flying in to Dessel on board their 747-400 Jumbo Jet Ed Force One on The Book of Souls World Tour.
