16 new names
Metal Monday is doing justice to its name! Today Graspop Metal Meeting can confirm sixteen new acts for its 2017 edition. Another impressive list. The line-up is now complete.
The rumour has been circulating for a few days. Today Graspop Metal Meeting is delighted to confirm that Scorpions will be headlining on Sunday 18 June. The German metal band will be playing an exclusive show for Benelux. Previously Rammstein (Friday), Deep Purple (Saturday) and Evanescence (Sunday) were announced as headliners.
On Friday the powerful progressive mathcore of the popular American The Dillinger Escape Plan is the headlining act on the Metal Dome club stage. Once this year is over the band is planning to put their guitars, drums and equipment in their road cases and take a long break. So it’s your last chance to see them perform on the roughest festival grounds in Benelux!
On Saturday the American alternative metal combo Helmet has the highest spot on the line-up of the Metal Dome. Page Hamilton’s band is a big name in the indie rock/metal circuit. Their influence on numerous bands from this year’s line-up is unmistakable.
The 16 new acts which will grace the five stages of Graspop Metal Meeting 2017 are: Scorpions, As It Is, Battle Beast, Black Star Riders, Blue Öyster Cult, Code Orange, Coheed And Cambria, Graveyard, Helmet, Melechesh, Nothing More, Sepultura, Suicide Silence, Sum 41, The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Raven Age.
