Graspop Metal Town is located at just 1km from the festival arena. If you’re going to have a few after the last band has left the stage but you’d still like to catch a few hours of comfortable sleep, then Metal Town is definitely the ticket! You can either spend the night in a festihut or you can book a pitch for your motorhome, caravan or tent.
Metal Town opens its doors at 2pm on Thursday so please don’t get there the day before. Camping outside Metal Town until opening time will not be tolerated!
Access does require a voucher that’s included in the confirmation mail you will receive for your reservation. Access to the festival arena and campsite is not included! New arrivals are required to check in at the reception desk where you will be handed your village access pass. At the reception desk you can also collect your festihut key and breakfast vouchers and the staff will happily answer your enquiries.
Arrival and departure:
Check-in: Thursday: 02pm – 02am / Friday, Saturday and Sunday: 08am – 02am
Check-out: We like to keep noise to a minimum for our friendly neighbours, so when you leave your vehicle in the car park it stays there for the remainder of the festival weekend. Exit times are limited to Sunday between 9 pm and 1 am and to Monday morning as of 8 am.

Your ticket for Metal Town entitles you to just one parking lot in the Metal Town car park. Any additional vehicles must be parked in the public car park in the vicinity. It’s not allowed to park next to your festihut or pitch. Guests must return their car to the car park after leaving their belongings in the festihut or at the pitch (except for mobilhomes).
Metal Town is equipped with a sanitary cluster including hot showers and flush toilets. The number of toilets is being increased this year to keep the morning queues down to a minimum. There’s also an accessible toilet and shower for wheelchair users.
The breakfast tent offers a breakfast buffet between 8am and noon. Cold beverages are available at the bar (open between 8 am and 2 am). Due to popular demand we are also adding a food stall with French fries, pasta and pizza on the menu.

Remark: Graspop token vouchers bought in advance must be exchanged at the main box office of the festival.
A festihut is a cozy wooden cottage equipped with beds or bunk beds and mattresses. They also have a lockable door and a window. You can always leave your key at the reception desk for a carefree festival day.
