Graspop Metal Meeting add 117 new artists to 2022 line-up
Following this week’s news that Avenged Sevenfold would be the fourth headliners of the 25th anniversary edition of Belgium’s Graspop Metal Meeting, the festival has announced a further 117 artists for next year’s bill.
Joining A7X, plus Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Aerosmith at the June event, are the likes of Deftones, Faith No More, A Day To Remember, Beartooth, Code Orange, Employed To Serve and Alice Cooper (there’s really too many to type out so you’ll just have to check out the full poster below!).
These 117 artists joining the four headliners make a grand total of 121 confirmed acts so far, and Graspop state that they’re going to book 130 – so there’s nine more spots still to fill…

Of course, the 2021 edition of Graspop was one of many events affected by everything that’s going on in the world with the pandemic.
The festival shared the following statement when they were forced to postpone this year’s fest to 2022: “We would love nothing more than to welcome metalheads from all across the globe to Dessel this June but unfortunately that won’t be possible. The safety of visitors, crew and artists is always our primary concern. And we look forward to bringing GMM back better and stronger than ever in 2022! We will do our utmost to roll over as many bands as possible from the GMM2021 line-up to our 2022 edition. The full line-up will be announced at a later time.”
“Our fans are taking it to the next level for spooky szn…” Watch this epic Halloween light show synced perfectly with Avenged Sevenfold’s Nightmare.
YUNGBLUD will be taking his Life On Mars tour to North America early next year with support from Palaye Royale, Charlotte Sands, poutyface and UPSAHL.
