Iron Maiden & Judas Priest headline the 25th Anniversary of Graspop Metal Meeting in 2020

Break out the booze and light those candles! The 25th edition of Graspop Metal Meeting takes place in Dessel during the third weekend of June 2020. Organisers are pulling out all the stops for this anniversary edition and just like in 2018 they have got an XL programme for you with 4 full festival days!

True to tradition, the Stenehei festival park in Dessel will host a blistering line-up with a generous selection of top bands from the hard rock and heavy metal scenes.

We kick things off on a high note with the announcement of the Thursday headliner: In 1996 IRON MAIDEN headlined the very first edition of Graspop Metal Meeting and in 2020 and since then the UK metal legends have nine Graspop appearances under their collective belts and they are back to celebrate the 25th anniversary when they headline Main Stage 1 on Thursday 18th June!

Graspop Metal Meeting is also proud to announce its second headliner for next summer’s XL edition. None other than JUDAS PRIEST will top the bill on Saturday 20th June. The godfathers of heavy metal are celebrating their 50th anniversary and they’ve promised to make it a night to remember, in other words, there’s double cause for celebration because the Benelux’ premier hard rock and metal festival is blowing out 25 candles next year with an XL edition from Thursday-Sunday 18-21 June at Stenehei Festival Park in Dessel!
