In a few short weeks the gates to the metal Walhalla in Dessel will once again swing wide. Below you’ll find a few useful tips to help you navigate our busy roads.
By bicycle you can easily overtake bumper-to-bumper traffic. Are you coming from further away? Then use the Park & Bike EAST or Park & Bike WEST parking facilities. Public transport is yet another easy way of travelling to GMM. Click here to buy your train tickets at half price, including free shuttle bus service from Mol station!
This year you’ll also find the Kiss & Ride zone at Mol station. Navigate to the Kiss & Ride zone at Mol station and board a free shuttle bus to the GMM festival site.
Would you like to benefit from a reserved seat in a comfortable coach? Then book a seat on our paying shuttle service. This coach will take you to and from more than 14 Belgian cities, Brussels Airport (BRU), Brussels South Airport (CRL) and Eindhoven Airport (EIN) in true VIP style. Buy your tickets for the airport shuttle (one way) or festival shuttle (round trip).
Coming by car anyway?
Every year we give a lot of thought to the impact of GMM on the surrounding area and the environment. As a sustainable festival we want to make a difference. In addition to initiatives to reduce the rubbish pile, such as Cash Your Trash*, we also strive to curb our CO2 emissions. That is why we have paying parking facilities again this year.
Do you have a VIP festival ticket and are you staying at Camping Boneyard? Then do NOT park in the VIP car park but instead use one of the regular car parks, which are located closer to Camping Boneyard. Conversely, VIP car park tickets are valid in all car parks.
Car park tickets are only €15 per car if you buy them in advance online and you’re helping to avoid congestion. On the day tickets are €20 per car (only bank or credit cards, NO cash). Attention: drive off = a new ticket. So if you come by car every day you’ll have to buy a new ticket every time.
TIP! Congestions are always a possibility, especially on Thursday. COMBI (VIP) ticket? Then come on Wednesday to avoid the worst traffic.
Good to know: Are you staying at a Graspop Metal Meeting campsite? Then collect your festival ticket and GMM tokens there. Day visitors can collect theirs in the dedicated area at the main entrance.
PS: Have you heard of Cash Your Trash yet? In Metal Plaza you can exchange the eco coins you’ve collected at the Cash Your Trash booth! There’s a selection of GMM gadgets on offer that can only be purchased with these green eco coins. Save eco coins by helping to make our festival more sustainable:
