big is relative, can be BIG BIG like ACDC indeed but I just don't see that happening, I think that we need to look at big bands like guns n roses or maybe rage against the machine.

IF Rage Against The Machine is playing in Europe by the end of June, they will defnitely play at Rock Werchter instead of Graspop.

2 people above already mentioned that prophets of rage was booked for graspop. you never know that the management made a deal to replace prophets of rage with RATM or anything of that sorts. Either way it means that graspop needs to be considered if RATM comes to belgium. And in my honest opinion (not that this matters for booking) is RATM stylistically a much better fit for graspop than for werchter.

That may be, but RATM are not the same league as POR. If Rock Werchter has the oportunity to let RATM play at their festival, they will. 

I disagree with you that RATM fits better at Graspop, I reckon they're just like SOAD a perfect (co)headliner for both festivals, (in my opinion RATM are even bigger).But we'll see if they come to Belgium at all ;)

Maybe Tool was a much better fit for GMM too. Tool played RW.
imo same story for RATM if they come over.

No RATM for GMM normally. But bigger size than the usual headliners.

Hi - not my usual thread, but why is there a thought of AC DC for GP?

Facebook event says 19-20-21 june

For 2018, events or social media descriptions also said 3 days when teased "First names soon"... then 3 weeks later, they announce XL Edition. They always put the dates in the Facebook banners but not this time. So I guess we can have some hope for an edition like 2018. But if they're making all this sh*t only for GNR once again, I'd be a bit disappointed. Aerosmith, so they can make both Graspop and Hellfest?

Tomorrow, together with the Iron Maiden announcement. Yes, they will come the second time to Graspop with this tour.

So what we know is that RATM and Metallica won't be playing. ACDC could headline but it hasn't been confirmed by Ken or Kusy. It could be XL. A 'bigger band than the usual headliners' will headline. Is that right?

Graspop is also going to change their name to Iron Maidenpop.

(In other news: Rock Werchter will from now on be called Rock Pearl Jam.)

"A source close to Live Nation confirmed that a large group was delaying the first announcement of Graspop. However, it was clarified today that this famous band would not be in the first announcement. Another unforeseen event also disrupted GMM's schedule: indeed, Prophets Of Rage were supposed to close the Main Stage 2 one of three days. Off, the band was suddenly paused to allow the expected and unexpected return of Rage Against The Machine. Will they be at Graspop? It would be nice but if they come to Belgium, it will probably be Rock Werchter: business is business."
