Out in your shops before Xmas they say. Graspop has just made a whole series of announcements that will warm up everyone to the next festival summer.
Their timing even seems to say, give tickets under the xmas tree. As the sale starts this Saturday. Yes you heard it right. THIS SATURDAY. The lines open at 10 AM GMT+1. As far as i could find, no price ranges have been given yet. Given the fact that they XL the festival to 4 days, those could be an XL surprise themselves. Yes Graspop goes 4 days for one time to celebrate Guns and Roses coming to Graspop. which is odd to do that for a band.
Aside of that, lets go on to the actual band list. Among the headliners you can see all the usual suspects of a Graspop line-up. All the classics are there that are present nearly every year. Here is the full list:
A Perfect Circle, Akercocke, Amaranthe, Anti-Flag, Arkona, Asking Alexandria, Asphyx, At The Gates, Avenged Sevenfold, Blessthefal, Body Count Ft Ice T, Bölzer, Bullet For My Valentine, Carnivore A.D., Emmure, Exodus, Iced Earth, Guns and Roses, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Killswitch Engage,Knocked Loose, Kreator, Less Than Jake, Limp Bizkit, Marduk, Megadeth, Miss May I, Modern Life Is War, Monuments, Ozzy Osbourne, P.O.D., Parkway Drive, Pist*On, Planet Of Zeus, Powerflo, Powerwolf, Silverstein, Stone Broken, Stray From The Path, Tesseract, The Darkness, Thy Art Is Murder, Tyr, Underoath, Vader, Vixen, Watain, Zeal & Ardor
This is largely a parade of all the big and established bands both really old and less old. These are great bands but we want to know the rest of the line-up too. That's where it could get interesting.
