Gig Of The Week: Sonisphere Festival
WHO: Sonisphere Festival
WHERE: Knebworth Park
WHEN: Friday, July 30 to Sunday, August 1
The second Sonisphere Festival has a mouth-watering line-up, featuring headliners Rammstein (July 31) and Iron Maiden (August 1), plus Alice Cooper, Motley Crue, Iggy & The Stooges, Alice In Chains, Slayer, The Cult and Skunk Anansie.
There are five stages with over 70 bands, and Therapy? fans will no doubt be looking forward to seeing their heroes play their classic 1994 album Troublegum in its entirety.
There are also comedians and loads of other activities. As an added attraction, kids who are 12 or under go for free, as long as they’re accompanied by an adult.
Advance tickets come off sale at 9am on Thursday, July 29. But they will still be available at the festival box office, or from certain local outlets (the list is on the Sonisphere website).
And 20 more bands have just been confirmed for the festival. Not all are Classic Rock friendly, but here’s the list:
Bleed From Within
Hearts Under Fire
Karma To Burn
Love Amongst Ruin
Never Means Maybe
No Mean City
Stand Up Guy
This Is Devine
You And What Army
