Graspop Metal Meeting has issued as follows:
Last year, TWISTED SISTER and their flamboyant frontman Dee Snider set foot on Belgian soil for the first time in thirty years. They came, saw and conquered the Dessel plains and everyone agreed Dee Snider was the king of GMM2012. So you can imagine how thrilled we are to announce that Twisted Sister are coming back for round two and will be headlining GMM on Friday 28 June. To be honest, we made it clear that ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ and wait another thirty years and they took the hint. Just like last year, tens of thousands of throats will roar ‘I Wanna Rock’ so join the party in front of the main stage! Just remember: ‘You Can’t Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll’ and you sure as hell can’t stop Twisted Sister!
For WITHIN TEMPTATION it all started in 1996, the year of the first edition of GMM. The band has matured tremendously since then and today they are one of the biggest crowd draws on the metal scene. Last November they celebrated their 15th anniversary with a spectacular sold-out show at Antwerp Sports Palace. In recent years, the band has also pushed back metal boundaries with stellar performances at alternative and mainstream festivals like Pukkelpop and Rock Werchter. True to their roots, the likeable Dutchmen were more than happy to make another appearance at GMM and we’re certainly looking forward to having them.
Have also been confirmed for GMM2013: UDO, HEAVEN SHALL BURN, OVERKILL, HEATHEN, THE GHOST INSIDE, ASKING ALEXANDRIA, SYLOSIS and VOODOO SIX.
