On Thursday, 21 June you can only enter the festival grounds and The Boneyard with a combi ticket XL, a VIP combi ticket XL or a day ticket for Thursday. We will let you know when we start selling day tickets.
Food and beverages at the festival are paid for with GMM tokens. One GMM token costs €2.85 at the festival. They only cost €2.50 a piece when purchased in advance. Skully’s tip: take advantage of this offer and purchase your tokens in advance. If you order 40 GMM tokens you’ll receive a free GMM 2018 cup.
Looking for a place to catch your breath between performances? That’s understandable because GMM is several days of serious musical violence. We offer three options: The Boneyard is adjacent to the festival grounds, Metal Town is a few kilometers from the festival, and Metal Park is in the middle of the forest and has a subtropical aqua paradise in the backyard.
