Roll over Reading, duck out Download, there's a new rock festival in town! Taking place on August 1 and 2 this summer, Sonisphere will play host to some of music's premiere talent at the UK's spiritual home of rock, Knebworth.

 

Rather than squeezing as many bands as possible onto multiple stages, Sonisphere will feature only bands of the highest calibre performing on two alternate stages, meaning you won’t have to miss any music.

 

Commenting on the new festival, Lars Ulrich of Metallica has said, "We're stoked to be touring England and Europe with Sonisphere... summer festivals in Europe are what Metallica do best. We can't wait to see all of our fans over there."

 

Tickets are available at 9am on Wednesday, February 11

Updated main post with all the info.

 

They played 6 UK shows in 2008, and 7 Germany shows. Check your facts again.

 

This is nuts - why is the lineup not the same for all days? lol

 

I think because either Linkin Park and Slipknot don´t want to open to each other...

 

And that makes impossible to have both in the same bill...

 

it´s sad but i think it´s the truth

by the way LP are playing the saturday knebworth not sunday this is a interview with the guy who runs the festival

 

What’s the setup?

Galbraith: ”We have one main arena with a stage at either end, nothing like stages next to each other like what you see at Reading. Our headliner for Saturday is Linkin Park, and our headliner for Sunday is Metallica, and the two backups are Mastodon and Lamb Of God, and they’re just the shape of what’s to come. The full lineup will include include some really special guests, and some really big surprises.”

O man I'd love if Chester collabed w/ Metallica, but idk if he has the strength for it anymore. And yea we shud prob set up some tapers since there's not a full chance of SBD's.
