In 2018 the Belgian metal festival will be an XL edition consisting of 4 days, starting on June 21st till June 24th. The location of the festival is as always, on the Stenehei in Dessel. The metal festival started in 1996 and usually takes place in June. Originally Graspop wasn’t a heavy metal festival, but started out as a local family rock festival in 1986. But because of the many consisting family festivals, the number of visitors lacked in 1995. The direction of the festival changed and the rest is history.
