Graspop Metal Meeting began in 1996, with just a handful of bands. Since then, the festival has expanded largely, and continues to pull in famous international acts and draw in crowds from all over the world. At first, the music festival didn’t specialize in any specific type of rock music, but eventually changed to focus on the best of metal rock.
Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and Slayer, among many more, return to the main stage to put on an incredible performance. In fact, Iron Maid was one of the first performers at the original event in 1996 and has performed at the festival more times than any other band.
