Looking for advice on where to fly to, hotel and anything else you can think of that would help a first timer 


Many thanks in advance 

You really don't want to get a hotel as there is nowhere easy to get to and from. Argon events do hotels and transport packages to Graspop but don't miss your (only)last bus home or it's a 60 euro taxi fare back(if you can get one). The other options left are accommodation at Devil's Lake centre parcs which is great if there are a few of you as there are shuttles running constantly. Do not get your own hotel and try get to and from the venue unless you are driving as it's virtually impossible. 

If you get accommodation through the website the easiest way to get there is to fly/Eurotunnel to Brussels and then train(only 10 euros there and back) to either Mol or Lommel depending which accommodation you get.

Here is the very big band. GNR. Finally it didn’t work out for Graspop. Too expensive I guess.

So it's the Friday headliner @ RW sad for Graspop, missing SOAD and G'n'R

I fully understand bands like SOAD and VOLBEAT who wants to play in the biggest crowd possible but it sucks for Graspop. They could have such a great line-up. Better than what they have now. 

Thursday: Iron Maiden - Alter Bridge - Mercyful Fate - Airbourne (shorter day).
Friday: Guns N Roses - Nightwish - Powerwolf - Steel Panther. 
Saturday: System Of A Down - Judas Priest - KoRn - Disturbed.
Sunday: Aerosmith - Deep Purple - The Offspring - Deftones.

But I understand the budget would be too much. Just sad.

It was the choice of live nation, graspop and Volbeat to do something else this year. Again graspop would be the reason for a lot of criticism.

I don't critic Graspop, just the whole situation. But I respect their choices. We can't choose or change anything now. Anyway I'm really curious to see the full line-up of Rock Werchter next year :)

I'm glad Gn'R aren't there this year. Saw them 2 years ago and was really disappointed. I do hope though that we get someone like Nightwish on the Friday and SOAD for Saturday as the 2 headliners are imo not headliners.

We have our 4 headliners : Iron Maiden, Faith No More, Judas Priest & Aerosmith :) 

System Of A Down won't be playing Graspop. About Nightwish, they see them as headliners for the Main Stage 2 on Friday. Ken almost confirmed they'll be there this year.

Does anyone have an idea when and who might the next announcement be?

late january as usual...about the bands...who knows.

Nightwish, Mastodon, Avantasia or Epica would not be a big surprise for me.

Was that the 'bigger than usual' headliner? Boy, did we bark at the wrong tree. People were already losing their mind over AC/DC, Metallica or Tool. Thanks for sharing this though

Please, I don't know what your job is or how high up the chain you are at Live Nation, but is there a chance Graspop would/could book Megadeth, Saxon or Avatar? That would trully make it an anniversary edition in my eyes :D

Looking at who else is playing European festivals June / July, the following could all be possibilities: Nightwish (as someone here has already said look nailed), Accept, Doro, L7, Venom, Suicidal Tendencies, Electric Wizard, BÖC and Diamond Head. Also around are Billy Talent and Royal Republic, but they may be better suited to RW.

I really can see Matodon happen. I can't believe they come to Europe for only one concert. 

Jinjer is already playing Ieper Hardcore Fest. 

Mastodon also at Sunstroke, Ireland
