Dynamo Metalfest Festival Info

Back to what was to many of our clients, the most vibrant of all the destinations we visited, the City boasts the longest pub street in the Netherlands with over 50 bars and clubs. Stratumseind attracts a young crowd that’s up for anything.

You can find anything from Metal, to salsa to rock and roll, a lot of dance & techno, and party music. Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights turn this street into a party that lasts until 4:00 AM. Walking up and down the street looking for the perfect spot is half the fun, explore the different bars and clubs and you will not be disappointed.

Eindhoven basically has everything that Amsterdam has to offer, but in a fraction of the space. What’s more everything one needs is within crawling distance of our hotel.

USA Rockers Anthrax are set to headline this year’s Event but in fact the Festival is “actually playing five headliners,” says organizer Sander Waterschoot.

“Also, Metal Church, Life of Agony, At the Gates and Sacred Reich could close the festival fine. We believe, therefore, more in a broad program with something for everyone, than in a traditional programming with a major headliner. Now everyone can pick out his or her own favorite. ”

Artists confirmed to date, for 2016:

Anthrax, At The Gates, Audrey Horne, Life Of Agony, Metal Church, Powerwolf, Sacred Reich.

5 Principles of Argon Events
QUALITY

“The consumer is our boss, quality is our work and value for money is our goal.”

Everybody has a voice…anybody can question the quality of any of our products, and the standard is very simple: Put yourself in the position of the consumer, and if you wouldn’t be happy with what you’re going to give them, don’t give it to them.

RESPONSIBILITY

We choose to be different from those organisations who grow to such a size where many levels of management dilute personal responsibility.

We like to be small, but at every level of our work you will find someone who is responsible, who knows their work and accepts their responsibility to exercise initiative and judgment and to make decisions as required.

MUTUALITY

“A mutual benefit is a shared benefit; a shared benefit will endure.”

You help your customer, by producing the product the customer wants. Your customer helps you, by buying your product.

EFFICIENCY

Our strength lies in our efficiency, the ability to organize and the attention to detail.

Through efficiency, our goal is always to ensure that our products and services are offered and delivered with convenience, enjoyment and safety to our customers and with the highest quality, at the least possible cost without sacrificing standards.

FREEDOM

We need freedom to shape our future; we need profit to remain free. It means we don’t have to borrow to fuel our Business; our Products and Services to our customers.

Our freedom ensures there is a Company in Argon Events that may invest in its future, a Company that exists to serve those that would direct it.

Hotel Two – Hotel Kyriad Nantes Centre

The Hotel Kyriad Nantes Centre is located opposite the north entrance of the main Gare du Nord station in Nantes and is absolutely ideal for people arriving on our Eurostar Package from London.

Graspop Metal Meeting Information

The information below has been selected directly from the official Graspop Metal Meeting site.

It contains answers to many of the questions you might like to ask about the Festival.

For more info please go directly to the festival website.

Festival Site & 24-hour Zone

Lodged in between the festival arena and the campsite there is a large 24h ZONE with booze tents, toilet blocks, an info stand, token stands, police post; a restaurant and lots of side animation. And when the guitar violence has died down, the Metaldome will host the after party till the break of dawn.

The 24h zone is open around the clock (or just-about anyway). The 24h zone is closed between 5 and 7 am to get things ready for the rest of the festival day.

The festival site opens its doors every day on 10am en closes after the last performance.

Food & drinks

Across the entire festival grounds you will find food stands offering French fries, pastas, pizza, Mexican food, pita, waffles, ice cream, sandwiches, fruit, etc. There’s something to suit all tastes! All you vegetarians out there have not been forgotten. There are stands with fruit, vegetarian pastas, noodles with vegetables, etc.

The bars are located in the centre of the festival grounds so you never have to walk very far if you want a drink. Graspop Metal Meeting wouldn’t be a genuine Belgian festival without our traditional Belgian beer! The BELGIAN BEER CAFE,in the 24h zone, is open for business throughout the festival.

Graspop Metal Meeting supports the ‘Respect16‘ campaign of the Belgian Brewers.

Food and drinks are paid with GMM tokens. A GMM token pays for soft drinks, cold beers, French fries, pizza, pasta… in short, everything that qualifies as food and drink. One Graspop token will cost 2.25 euros in the festival arena.

Graspop tokens are available from the token stands in both the festival arena and the 24h zone. You will also be able to buy the tokens from vending machines, so the choice is yours. Graspop tokens are also available in pre-sale. You can buy the so-called BOOZEBAGS.

Recycling

On the festival grounds and the campsite a special collection point will be installed for the recycling of empty drink cups.

Collect 24 cups and get a free drink token or… collect 50 drink cups and make your choice from a collection of fun gadgets.

You’ll be helping to keep the festival site clean while enjoying a free beer!

Toilets

The toilet facilities are non-paying and are scattered across the festival grounds.

Please respect our toilet facilities and keep them clean.

There are also accessible toilets for wheelchair users.

Urinating is only allowed in the designated toilet areas.

The water from the wash basins at the festival grounds is drinkable!

Cash points

There’s a cash dispenser in the centre of Dessel. Nevertheless, it’s a good idea to simply bring enough cash for the entire weekend.

Graspop Metal Meeting continues to improve the quality of the festival for the visitors. Also this year, we are providing optimal protection, so that you can keep your possessions under lock and key for one day, or for the entire duration of the festival. More info to follow!

Info Point & police post

Looking for information on the train schedule, the shuttle service, the line-up, the emergency services…? The info team will assist you to the best of their ability! If you’ve lost something (or perhaps even someone), report it to the info desk! All items in the lost and found bag are taken to the police post at the end of each festival day.

Disabled Access

In contrast to the last years, in 2009 we won’t have a certain ground for disabled , which is defined well in advance. This happens because of the experiences, we had to make in the past. Over and over again, people, who do not belong to this audience, crowded these defined areas.

We offer you another service instead: Everyone with a handicap (at least 50%) contact the presenter of the festival at an early stage. The persons will get a written certification (pass- Passierschein), which says, that they are allowed to camp on a separate ground (e.g. area P), including the special service, which is necessary in these cases (e.g. handicapped accessible toilets, paved paths, closeness to the festival area, first aid at the Red Cross, etc)

To get the written certification, we only need this information:

Furthermore we have two wheelchair- platforms at the FOHs. Festival guests, who have to put pharmaceuticals in storage at the DRK (Deutsches Rotes Kreuz- German Red Cross) or need any other help at the face, please contact nils.sahnwaldt@drk-kaltenkirchen.de

Programmes

In this programme, you can find all the important information about bands, who performs when on which stage, ground maps, surveys, Meet & Greet schedule, Warm up & after Show Parties among others. The service charge of 1€ finances WET-Stage (Wacken-Evolution-Tent). The programme is available at different checkpoints on the festival area.

Violence

We don’t want any kind of violence at the W:O:A! In case of damage at the fencing, the marquees and tents, or any other equipment of the organizer or other institutions, which support the festival, the person(s) in charge will be send off the festival and camping ground and a criminal prosecution will occur. We want a wicked, peaceful Metal week, just like the years before!

Full Metal Bag

The Full Metal Bag should be seen as a present and does not deal with the service due of 20,00€, which is already contained in the ticket price.

You can take a look at the current content here. The release takes place at the ribbon- container and at the bus stop. (Festival maps)
