Tickets purchased for the cancelled 2021 edition of Graspop Metal Meeting can be rolled over to next year. All remaining passes are due to go on sale here on November 2.
Upon cancelling this summer’s event due to COVID-19, organisers explained that “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!” an official statement continued. “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.”
Meanwhile, Graspop Metal Meeting’s new addition Alice Cooper recently announced a co-headlining UK arena tour with The Cult. The two acts are scheduled to hit the road in May next year.
