Sonisphere Festival UKSONISPHERE BRINGS THE BIG 4 TO THE UK FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER

Yes, it’s really true. SONISPHERE will be bringing together METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX in the UK for the first time in history to exclusively headline the Friday night at Knebworth.

Given that 2010’s event had sold out before IRON MAIDEN took to the stage, and the hugely exciting headliners set for next year, SONISPHERE can not guarantee that day tickets will be available for 2011, so fans are advised to get their tickets early to ensure they don’t miss out on what is already shaping up to be the festival’s most exciting year yet.

As previously announced, BIFFY CLYRO will headline the Saturday night with SLIPKNOT closing the Sunday. Beat that, Santa.
