We thought we’d end the year with a bang by announcing 22 new names for GMM2016. And not just any 22 names either: Nightwish, Apocalyptica and Slayer will be just a few of the top acts to tame the masses on the Stenehei in Dessel next year. With 73-odd bands confirmed so far and some 40 left to go, our 2016 line-up is really starting to take shape.
Our 22 new additions in alphabetical order: Amaranthe, Anthrax, Apocalyptica, Atreyu, Devil You Know, Gojira, Heaven Shall Burn, In the Woods, Moonsorrow, Nightwish, Raven, Saxon, Shinedown, Skillet, Slayer, The Amity Affliction, The Raven Age, The Wild Lies, Tremonti, Turnstile, Windhand and Zakk Wylde.
