Graspop Metal Meeting 2023 – Festival

Graspop 2023

In 2023, Graspop will again provide a huge 4-day festival. Graspop Metal Meeting 2023 will take place from 15 to 18 June. In 2022, the festival attracted 220,000 visitors, breaking the previous 2019 record of 200,000. But what bands will perform this year and which bands are missing? That will be answered in the article below. 

Headliners Graspop 2023

Several headliners have already been announced for Graspop 2023. For instance, it has been announced that Ghost will close the North Stage on Thursday 15 June. Very excited to see the how the Swedish Papa Emeritus and his Nameless Ghouls will perform. 

In addition, Graspop has announced that French band Gojira will close the North Stage on Friday. This French Deathmetal band has become one of the standard-bearers of the extreme metal genre in recent years.   

Performing on Saturday will be none other than Slipknot. This will be the eighth time for them to perform at Graspop. They usually wear new masks, so I am curious to see how they will appear at this festival. Also, I’m curious about how their new album ‘The End, So Far’ will be featured in the performance. 

Also performing on Saturday will be Australian Metalcore heroes Parkway Drive. A band that has been playing in the metal scene since 2003 with their no-nonsense metalcore. With seven albums by now, Parkway Drive released one of the most acclaimed metal records of 2022 the well-received album “Darker Still”. 

Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe will perform on the final day of the festival. Just last summer, these bands toured America, a summer tour that was fully sold out. After the North American tour Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe have anounced to be performing at Graspop and Hellfest. Def Leppard released another album earlier this year ‘Diamond Star Halos’. And after a seven-year break, Mötley Crüe is also back in full force. This year they will tour without Mick Mars, but his replacement John 5. 

Missing headliners

But we are still missing two headliners: one for Thursday and one for Friday. There are already several rumors going around about who these will be. There are a lot of rumors about the following bands: Guns N’ Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, Faith No More and AC/DC. These bands are being talked about because they have announced that they are still touring this year or because they didn’t show up due to various reasons last year even though they were in the line-up.
