Wanted: two Belgian bands for the Red Bull Metal Dome!

Graspop Metal Meeting is celebrating! Four days of the hardest, heaviest riffs, with a potential stage slot left for your band on Thursday 18 June 2020! Got what it takes?

Hurrah! In 2020, Graspop Metal Meeting will have been blowing your socks off for 25 years. To celebrate a quarter century of sock-blowing rock, the organizers have slapped some incredible international guitar gods onto the festival roster, but there’s still some room left for homegrown talent at the Red Bull Metal Dome on Thursday 18 June 2020. Yeah, you read that right: your band could warm up the audience for Iron Maiden. That’s on your bucket list, let’s not kid ourselves.

Will your band tear the roof off the Red Bull Metal Dome with some spiffing riffs, thunderous drumming and a tricoloured wall of sound? Then send us a mail at gmm@redbullmusic.be! Hit us with the usual suspects: your contact details, music, videos, photos and links to online profiles like Facebook or Bandcamp. You can send over your stuff up to and including Monday 21 February 2020. After that, the selected bands will be contacted personally!

“It’s the greatest feeling ever,” says drummer Frederik Cosemans of Hemelbestormer, who played the Red Bull Metal Dome in 2019. “Getting to play your music for that many people, songs you poured your heart and soul into, and then getting such a response. Indescribable. I mean, you hope people come and check you out, but that many? That was wow."
