Metallica Set For Sonisphere
A new two-day festival will take place at Knebworth this summer.
Metallica and Linkin Park will headline Sonisphere, a brand-new pan-European festival. Its UK leg will take place at Knebworth on August 1 and 2.
The event will consist of two stages and bands will alternate on each stage in the manner of the old Reading festival. This means the gaps between bands’ sets will be kept to a minimum and fans shouldn’t miss any of the acts on the bill.
The only other names announced thus far are Lamb Of God and Mastodon.
Other Sonisphere festivals are set to take place in Holland (June 20), Germany (July 4), Spain (July 11), Sweden (July 18) and Finland (July 25).
