Sonisphere Festival – UK


The last four acts for BOHEMIA come in the form of CHERRI BOMB, ANBERLIN and TURBOWOLF. Sheffield hardcore heroes WHILE SHE SLEEPS open proceedings on the Saturday, before LA all girl rock troupe CHERRI BOMB show the UK why they are fast being hailed as “Rock’s New Generation”, with the Sunday playing host to US alt-rockers ANBERLIN, and Bristolian electro-noise-rockers TURBOWOLF, who will take the stage after HOWARD MARKS’s Sunday sermon slot.

Over on the JAGERMEISTER stage, the last two headline slots can be revealed, with THE DEFILED taking the honours on Friday, and BLACK SPIDERS delivering the final JAGER-BOMB of the evening on Saturday.

Joining THE DEFILED on the Friday are toga-clad metal warriors HAMMER OF THE GODS, Seattle thrashers BLACK BREATH, London rockers SLAM CARTEL, pop-punk/hardcore quintet DECADE and new UK old-school punk revivalists FLATS. On the Saturday, Marshall Ultimate Band winners SONS OF ICARUS kick off proceedings on the JAGERMEISTER stage, with new Californian Classic Rock sensations RIVAL SONS also putting in an appearance. Joining the line up on Sunday are progressive metallers THE SAFETY FIRE, groove metal beasts PANIC CELL, Reading post-hardcore mob EXIT TEN and Northern Irish alt-rockers MOJO FURY.

Over on the RED BULL BEDROOM JAM stage, the six additions include British post-hardcore trio YOUNG LEGIONNAIRE, and Brooklyn hardcore maniacs CEREBRAL BALLZY who will tear it up on the Friday, Pennyslvanian dance rockers INNERPARTYSYSTEM and Welsh thrash-newcomers REVOKER on the Saturday, with the Sunday hosting appearances from Bedford post-hardcore popsters DON BROCO, and a headline set from Ska-Punk-Hip-Hop fusionists SONIC BOOM SIX.

With the line-up now complete, one can see what a truly awesome festival SONISPHERE 2011 is going to be. As well as all the fantastic bands on offer, SONISPHERE boasts an extremely impressive comedy line up, with performances from the likes of BILL BAILEY, STEVE-O, HOWARD MARKS and SEAN HUGHES to name a few, plus an array of other entertainment including fairground rides, stalls, plus lots of late night entertainment in BOHEMIA well after the bands stop playing, including DJs, Discos and cinema to name just a few, with more attractions and on-site events to be announced in the coming weeks.
