With Avenged Sevenfold Graspop Metal Meeting is adding a fourth headliner to the roster for its 25th XL edition. The American top act will end proceedings on Main Stage 1 on Friday. GMM 2022 takes place from Thursday 16 through Sunday 19 June 2022 and already it’s shaping up to be a memorable anniversary edition.
Despite two consecutive cancellations throwing in the towel was never an option for Graspop Metal Meeting. Following earlier (re)confirmations of headlining appearances by Iron Maiden (Thursday 16 June 2022), Judas Priest (Saturday 18 June 2022) and Aerosmith (Sunday 19 June 2022), GMM has now added Avenged Sevenfold to the line-up.
The American metal band will close out Main Stage 1 on Friday. Avenged Sevenfold, often abbreviated as A7X, burst upon the metal scene in 2001 as a heavy-hitting metalcore act but following their eponymous breakthrough album ‘Avenged Sevenfold’ (2007) they matured into a well-oiled hard rock machine with millions of fans worldwide. With a new album scheduled to be released before next summer, they’ve got all the ammunition they need to add even more spice to what is already an amazing anniversary line-up.
