the Graspop Metal Meeting is a Belgian heavy metal festival which has been held in Dessel every year since 1996. Despite the small size of the Graspop Metal Meeting site (with a perimeter of only ~ 4 km), the festival attracts a large number of international spectators, with a total of 152,000 spectators. visitors during the 2015 edition.

History of the Graspop Metal Meeting

the Graspop Metal Meeting was not originally a festival of heavy metal ; Rather, it was conceived as a local family rock festival, first held in 1986. In 1995, the headliners were Joe Cocker and Simple Minds.

However, due to the fact that the public is saturated with family festivals, the number of visitors has fallen to a historically low level.

The founder of Graspop Metal Meeting, Peter Van Geel realized that traditional rock music did not have enough appeal to festival visitors. Reflecting on the most memorable acts of previous years ( Motörhead , Ramones, Paradise Lost, etc.) and his own musical preferences, he spoke in favor of a radical reorientation.

 

 

After discussions with Werchter festival promoter Herman Schueremans, Van Geel contacted Bob Schoenmaekers, the owner of the Biebob concert hall and metal club in nearby Vosselaar.

A few years earlier, Schoenmaekers had organized his “Midsummer Metal Meeting” in Vosselaar and due to space limitations he was considering an open-air festival. The first contact quickly led to a close collaboration. The duo have decided to launch a brand new metal festival under the name "Graspop Metal Meeting". The date of choice was to be the last weekend of June.

The new leadership has proven to be successful. The festival has seen an ever-increasing number of visitors over the years and has been able to attract the most popular international groups of its kind. Since the festival's inception in 1996, Iron Maiden has been the most frequent headliner with 10 appearances.

Other bands that have been in the spotlight are Hatebreed, Saxon, Sick Of It All, Slayer  ), Cradle Of Filth, Epica, In Flames Moonspell, My Dying Bride and Within Temptation.
