Slipknot to headline GMM on Saturday 17 June 2023!

The announcement of our first two headliners Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe is still fresh in our minds and already it’s time to reveal our third headliner for #GMM23! None other than Slipknot will close out the South Stage on Saturday 17 June.

Earlier this year the nine-strong masked troupe headed by vocalist Corey Taylor dropped a musical splinter bomb with ‘The End, So Far’. As you know, the Des Moines, Iowa nine-piece have been welcome guests at the festival for many years. With their phenomenal podium presence and a truckload of memorable metal anthems they always take the Dessel plains by storm. Their eighth festival appearance promises to be a happy reunion, one that thousands of metalheads will anxiously look forward to. Get ready for a set stuffed to the brim with orchestrated chaos, mosh pits and hits!

Tickets for GMM2023 will go on sale later this year. Follow us on social media to be the first to receive updates.

In 2023 GMM will once again open the floodgates of metal heaven for four days straight with an all-star line-up. Graspop Metal Meeting 2023 takes place from 15 through 18 June. For the 26th time, the Stenehei festival venue in Dessel will rock to its foundations! True to form, the line-up will burst at the seams with the best of a variety of metal genres: from hardcore to hard rock, from black metal to thrash, from punk to metalcore and tons more. GMM2023 is the metal high mass of the year no metalhead can afford to miss. The countdown continues!

Stay metal, stay safe & take care.
