Many were sceptical when Danish heavy metal band Volbeat first headlined GMM two years ago. It’s unusual to have such a young band top the bill at a metal festival but a blistering show in the pouring rain convinced even the biggest critics. Michael Poulsen’s signature vocals and the band’s trademark mix of classic rock, punk, rockabilly and metal set the arena ablaze. We are pleased to announce that Denmark’s favourite heavy rock gangsters are coming back next year to add another notch to their GMM belt.
VOLBEAT fits in nicely with the rest of our impressive list of headliners. BLACK SABBATH and KING DIAMOND are the main acts on Friday 17 June, VOLBEAT is our first headliner for Saturday 18 June, and IRON MAIDEN & TWISTED SISTER will close the 21st edition of Graspop Metal Meeting on Sunday 19 June.
