Iron Maiden confirmed as headliners on Thursday 16 June 2022!
Your prayers have been answered! On Thursday 16 June 2022 GMM favourites Iron Maiden will return to Dessel. They will close out the first festival day of our 25th anniversary edition!
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic Iron Maiden had rescheduled their ‘Legacy of the Beast Tour 2020’ for June-July 2021. The British heavy metal legends were supposed to headline at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp on Sunday 27 June 2021 but unfortunately the tour has to be pushed back another year. Not to worry though because in 2022 Iron Maiden will once again gallop hard on the Dessel plains!
Manager Rod Smallwood comments: “Naturally the band are hugely disappointed, a second summer without touring, especially with this very special Legacy show, is very hard to take. They send their best wishes to you all, knowing full well you fans will feel the same. As we all know, realistically there is no alternative so we will all make the best of it and spend the time preparing for a very memorable and even more spectacular Legacy tour next year, we promise! Until then keep safe and keep smart”.
We’re looking forward to seeing you all in Dessel on 16, 17, 18 and 19 June 2022 for the 25th edition of Graspop Metal Meeting.
Stay Metal, stay safe & take care.
