They say they're announcing Thursday's line up soon too. It's definitely a strong line up and caters well to my tastes at least. Hopefully they'll get some cool bands for Thursday, there'll be at least one or two names anyway

It's organised much better than Download. I'd recommend flying into Eindhoven on the Thursday. There's usually a shuttle bus organised nearer the time you can book. It's a great festival

Overcast with rain last year but nowhere near as biblical as Download and they dealt with the mud a lot better. If you want guaranteed good weather Hellfest is the place to be but it's a lot more expensive in general to fly to Nantes. Great festival though

Eindhoven airport as above the best way to go likely cheap flights with Ryanair from Dublin as well its about 50 mins give or take from the site.

I've only ever got taxis there if theres a 4+ group they'll likely go for €20 per head. I notice those shuttle buses referred too are available to book on the website at the moment in fact, €31 return from Eindhoven...interesting.

Ya bark/mulch gets laid down in most areas should mud cause problems on site unlike DL where they wouldn't bother their ring :D

Was looking at the DL line up there apart from System there's actually nothing else i'm fussed about that's not already at Graspop,then a whole bunch more for me at GMM too.

Nice. The line up finished up being very strong for my tastes. Can't believe I'm gonna get to see Sanctuary! Sabaton closing is gonna rival Twisted Sister last year. Looking forward to seeing what's in store for Thursday.

A further bit of advice would be to buy your tokens for food and drink online before hand. One token is €2.85 on site but €2.50 online, so there is a good saving to be had buying early

Yes buy tokens early and when you collect them you will receive your graspop comemorative beer glass crafted from the finest plastic known to man. :)

Ticket got meself along with one batch of tokens

Timetables went up today... http://goo.gl/Ik9UN0

Friday pretty straight forward for me worked well, Saturday which is the weakest day for me now with 2 three way clashes having to bin 4 bands I would've watched.

Deep Purple/Ministry/Helmet
Gojira/Mayhem/Red Fang...Gojira will win out there

Sunday does have Rob Zombie/Opeth clash but I'll see Opeth later in year...
