Originating from Dessel, Belgium, Graspop Metal Meeting 2013 is a mighty heavy metal extravaganza that has been going since 1996 and is held on the last weekend in June. Featuring four stages around the site, there is guaranteed to be something for every discerning headbanger to enjoy.
The festival attracts a large number of foreign visitors and has played host to many leading lights of metal from Slayer, Korn, Guns ‘N’ Roses and Iron Maiden, so expect more of the same on the Graspop Metal Meeting 2013 line-up.
Other attractions besides the music include the annual metal market where you can buy all kinds of metal related trinkets and a large fairground. Free buses are on hand to help you get to the festival grounds and with Eindhoven airport and Mol train station nearby the site is readily accessible.
