Graspop started out with announcing the first 2 headliners. Within Temptation will be closing the festival on Friday June 21 and Slipknot will be doing so on June 22. This year the festival will last for 3 days, unlike last year when the XL edition lasted 4 days. We’re still keeping our fingers crossed for the headliner of Sunday June 23.
Through a bug on the website, a couple of names already leaked before the announcement. Normally on the Graspop website, you can search for bands that played the festival before. The bands that wouldn’t show up in the festivals history were going to play the festival in 2019. The leaked names were KISS, Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Children of Bodom, Agnostic Front, Amon Amarth, Carcass, Disturbed, Eluveitie, Godsmack, Equilibrium, Gloryhammer, Halestorm, Trivium, Sabton, Hammerfall, King Diamond, Testament, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Candlemass. All of these have been confirmed by Graspop now.
