Iron Maiden the biggest act of 2020 line-up? Quite the same level between them and Aerosmith :) 

I think they'll keep 4-days event for the following years. It works well, they can book more bands, more headliners and it doesn't so much more works to build the festival as everything has already been ready (or almost) on Thursday the years before. So we could have "XXL" editions with 4 days but more classic headliners.

No they are not. Iron Maiden means a loaded GraSpop field. Aerosmith not.

When will they announce more acts do you think? @Ken19

September i guess. I have not the feeling the organisers are in the mood to announce something during the summer break. Pearl Jam was an exception (but the band is the boss).

I think 80 to 90% of the 2020 line-up will return. I am curious which bands will fill the gaps of bands not returning. Could Nightwish be a possibility as they have rescheduled their European tour to may 2021?

I hope we can expect some names before 15 september, so we can decide if we want to keep our ticket for next year or switch 😀

With Nightwish now playing Antwerp in May, there're 0% chance they play at GraspopEvanescence have rescheduled their shows in Brussels in September, they'll tour in Europe all this month so I can't see them playing festivals 2 months before - even if indoor shows are selling well.

Hopefully they'll announce names before September 15th indeed. Maybe some news for Rock Werchter on this Friday and for Graspop on Monday.

I guess System Of A Down will finally play Graspop too.


MS1: Volbeat - Dropkick Murphys - Mastodon...
MS2: Mercyful Fate - Gojira - P.O.D...

MS1: System Of A Down - Heaven Shall Burn - Alestorm...
MS2: Faith No More - Powerwolf - Steel Panther... 

MS1: Judas Priest - Saxon - Foreigner...
MS2: Korn - TBA - Down...

MS1: Aerosmith - Deep Purple - Skillet...
MS2: The Offspring - Deftones - Killswitch Engage...


In the biggest acts, I guess we only miss the sub for Korn on Saturday and the headliner on Friday (System Of A Down). Sad the line-up of the Main Stage on Friday is a bit weird below the headliners. It remains me when they booked Rammstein with this old-school line-up around... We miss a band like Five Finger Death Punch or Alter Bridge in the higher spots or fresh bands like Babymetal and Enter Shikari in the afternoon.

I think there is indeed a good chance that SOAD will be the missing headliner and that this was already arranged by Live Nation months ago, with the consequence that Iron Maiden moved to the Sportpaleis. That would be a very sensible move for Graspop's 25th anniversary, after all the nagging last year ...

Red Hot Chili Peppers closes Werchter's Sunday. As a result, SOAD moves to another day or to GMM. Volbeat was scheduled for this metal Sunday with SOAD and is now playing on GMM.

Why would they keep the Friday headliner a secret? Probably because they know this will hit like a bomb. SOAD plays in Lisbon on Wednesdays and at Hellfest on Sundays. All stars are favorable...

@ken19 any chance guns n roses will be in a better mood 2021 and be the friday headliner? or do we need to think about something way different?

GnR are playing in London on the Friday. I think SOAD will be the headliner.
