I prefer festivals problem like hellfest where too many good bands are playing at the same time than a fest where you can't simply see the band you want to.
The only time I've ever dealt with an obscene amount of people at Graspop was Iron Maiden this year. This year was my fifth year going and the crowds have always been manageable. With regards the heat, it's mainland Europe in the June - you're going to get hot weather.

Several people I encountered this year at Graspop complained about Hellfest being messy, over-crowded, and the overlaps just being infuriating.

Graspop is great for overlaps, in that there aren't many, only ever two stages on at once out of four. As I say the crowds aren't huge, you must have had a bad experience - it's numbers are smaller than Hellfest and Wacken anyway.

Looking over the running order for this year's Hellfest, I had maybe 2 overlaps. I wanna go >:I

Yeah, I like how Graspop does its running order. It operates on the same principles as SRF in that respect.

But with crowds, I know the overall crowd size isn't that bad, but I hear people complain about not being able to get into the silly little tents for the side stages every year.

Yeah, but unless they add a second outdoor stage that's just a reality. Graspop wouldn't really have the room for a second outdoor stage unless they overhauled the entire layout.

Pretty sure they make enough money every year to do that.

Full line-up leaked by French media ahead of tomorrow's official announcement.

If true, it's fucking outrageous.

You know how when people make up those fake festival posters with impossible line-ups on them...
