The Marquee is hosting a Monsters of Metal Tribute Party. DioLegacy, Art of Pantera, Up the Irons and Present Danger will pay tribute to some of the biggest bands on the planet. The perfect excuse to let your hair down, sing along and bang that head!
More heavy tunes in the Metal Dome where the three winners of the Red Bull Bedroom Jam traditionally get to make their big Graspop debut on Thursday night.
