Cheap e-train ticket: just 10 euros for a round trip

Last year, the SNCB/NMBS launched an extensive summer campaign aimed specifically at festivals. This year, the Belgian national railway company is again scheduling a large number of extra trains to take festivalgoers to their destination, and this also includes a renewed collaboration with Graspop Metal Meeting. For just 10 euros, festivalgoers can buy an Graspop Metal Meeting e-train ticket. This ticket covers the outward and return journey by train in 2nd class between any Belgian departure station and MOL train station. The outward and return journey must be made in the period from Thursday 16th through Monday 20th June 2016.

The Graspop Metal Meeting e-train ticket will be available as of Wednesday 25th May 2016, exclusively online at In addition, you also stand a chance of winning one of a host of Graspop Experience packages. They include a signing fast lane ticket that takes you directly to the front of the queue at the signing stand, an exclusive backstage tour and a skydeck pass to watch your favourite band perform from the front of house platform.

The NMBS is scheduling extra capacity to take festivalgoers to their destination as seamlessly as possible. It’s important to note there are no night trains: if you want to go home at the end of your festival day please keep in mind that the last train leaves Mol station around 10pm. Every festival ticket includes access to our campsite so if you’re planning on leaving the next morning, you can spend the night there.

Shuttle service for all festivalgoers

De Lijn is organising a shuttle service between Mol station and the festival site, as well as between the festival site and the K&R zone in the centre of Dessel (with an intermediate stop at the entrance to  Metal Town). Festival ticket holders can use this service free of charge.
