And in what way could one single band you don't like destroy a whole festival for you? You wouldn't even have to see them. Although it's right, they do stand out a little.

WOW, I wish I could be there!!!

People just don't realize that bands like this are a perfect (and welcome) occasion to take a desired toilet, beer and/or snack-break. Besides, there are FOUR stages on Graspop, so you aren't even obliged to sit through a Papa Roach performance as it's simply impossible to see all bands play (I mean their whole set). In other words: just don't see them, have a beer instead, still manage to see all your favourite bands = win.

On a side note, this will be the third time already Papa Roach will play GMM, nothing disturbing about it.

Ehi seems interesting!

Why would you like to go there when you can all go at Hellfest with a really better general ambiance with better bands (plus also Anthrax, Heaven & Hell, Manowar etc...) in a "human sized" place?

Go to Hellfest God damn!
Spyroid - 05.01.2009 at 14:53  
Papa Roach and Parkway Drive <3
Honestly, I wouldn't mind going there at all, but Hellfest would be a lot better. But well, I already have tickets for Sweden Rock Festival (Dream Theater, Marillion, Uriah Heep...)

This doesn't sound so great. Is having all those shit bands odd for Graspop? there's only a few there that grab my attention.

I always thought that Papa Roach were s**t, now it has been confirmed, music to go to the toilet to.

Take out disturbed and papa roach, and you have a pretty decent line up so far.
Warman - 06.01.2009 at 01:45  
Sounds great so far!
Black Conundrum - 06.01.2009 at 05:42  
There are a lot of great bands and a few sub-par bands in this festival. But that's just a matter of opinion. A fact is that that list of bands is a huge variety of bands. I would really like to see some of those bands.
BrightNight - 06.01.2009 at 23:39  
Thats a go go for me!

Heaven and Hell alone is good enough to go! Legion of the damned and kataklysm are worth the ticket even more, already a very good line up. It can only get better
LeChron James - 07.01.2009 at 02:53  
ALRIGHT TRIVIUM WOO HOO.
Koen Smits - 18.02.2009 at 10:22
