New names were announced by the Graspop organisation last week. One of the recently introduced performers will be no one less than the Swedish Evergrey. That’s one band that I’m definitely gonna see live. But here’s some reasons why you should go, or stay away.
It was a thing that lot of Sepultura fans claim to be their dreams come true. Not even in their wildest dreams most would expect the Cavalera brothers to come together and make music again. Yet it happened and after their third album ‘Pandemonium’ the Cavalera Conspiracy is live on Graspop 2015.
This is a band that was present in my top 10 of last year. Blues Pills are an amazing rock-band that cannot stop to amaze you with their amazing sound! They grace the Metal Dome on Graspop in 2015. It could just be the resort for people who want to get away from the heavy stuff for half an hour.
Traditionally, the Jupiler stage hosts the metalcore and related bands. It looks like Graspop hasn’t changed that idea for the 2015 edition, but we do find a slightly out-of-place band. King 810, but they will move crowds like the metalcore bands, maybe that’s why they play the Jupiler stage.
One of the most pleasant surprises of the last couple of years has been the revival of the famous guitarist Slash. After various failed solo projects, such as Slash’s Snakepit and Velvet Revolver, which was the better of the two, he decided to go on as Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators.
Because I reckon most of you will know the actual headliners, there will be two headliners posted on the same day. The fun in this series will be the smaller and more unknown bands that play this festival on a stage in a small tent.
In 2014 the Graspop management decided to build an extra main-stage. This results in more bands and also, a double amount of Headliners! The first day, Friday, the 19th of June, will be closed off by two big players in their own scene. Legendary rock band KISS and the industrial maniac Marilyn Manson.
