Festival line-up update: Graspop, Roskilde, Open’er and more

By | Published on Monday 9 December 2013


So, wouldn’t you know. Black Sabbath, Avenged Sevenfold, Soundgarden and co have joined the line-up at Belgium rock bash Graspop, as its first announced acts. As have Hatebreed, Bring Me The Horizon, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Napalm Death, and a horde of others. That’s rock and roll for you.

Over on the ‘indie eclectic’ side of things, Danish main event Roskilde has signed on the likes of Pusha T, Deerhunter, Trentemøller, Haim, Carcass, Cyril Hahn, Dilated Peoples and MØ to play its 2014 iteration, which is so far looking promising.

And what’s more, it’s a double Black Keys whammy, as the band pop up on line-ups for both Poland’s Open’er fest, and Portguese man-o-pop Optimus Alive!

Find more on all that, plus updates to Croatian weekender Electric Elephant, and a list of rather big-name additions to choc-a-block Belgian bash Rock Werchter…
