SONISPHERE – DAY SPLITS ANNOUNCED

* DAY SPLITS ANNOUNCED *

* SINGLE DAY TICKETS TO GO ON SALE 9am TUESDAY MAY 25th *

SONISPHERE FESTIVAL KNEBWORTH boasts exclusive headline appearances from IRON MAIDEN and RAMMSTEIN, plus Friday night headliner ALICE COOPER, IGGY & THE STOOGES, SLAYER, ANTHRAX, PENDULUM and more – with over 140 bands set to play – many of whom you will only see at KNEBWORTH this summer. With a wealth of musical, comedic and other entertaining talent on offer, plus FREE MUSIC DOWNLOADS for every ticket holder, the £132.50 weekend ticket price – which unlike most festivals carries NO BOOKING FEE – is hands down the best value for money out there. Now SONISPHERE reveals the details of each day’s line up, as day tickets – for those who can’t handle a whole weekend’s worth of fantastic entertainment – go on sale.

Although there are still many bands to be announced, the line up so far will appear as follows. On the APOLLO and SATURN stages – where there will be no clashes, ensuring you can see every band on the two main stages – acts are listed from headliner to opener. On the remaining stages, bands are listed alphabetically (with BOHEMIA headliners on top).

FRIDAY 30th JULY – from 6pm

The party gets started at BOHEMIA, where BIZARRE will be hosting an evening of alternative cabaret and entertainment, to get everyone in the appropriate Rocky Horror mood that will be the evening’s theme. With loads of bands scheduled, plus Friday night headliner ALICE COOPER and his Theatre Of Death closing the evening, the first day at KNEBWORTH promises to be an unforgettable one. Look out for full details of the entertainment on offer coming soon.

BACKGROUND NOTES
Having established itself as the “Best New Festival” at the 2009 UK Festival Awards and holding six out of eight of the nominations for the forthcoming “Best New Festival” category at the European Festival Awards, SONISPHERE FESTIVAL moves forward proudly with the announcement of their phenomenal 2010 headliners. Last year’s SONISPHERE saw 300,000 music fans attend six festivals across the continent, taking in The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Finland, and the UK. Boasting a line-up covering a truly broad spectrum of the rock scene, headliners Metallica led a diverse collection of acts from country to country including Slipknot, Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Linkin Park, The Prodigy, The Hives and many more, to make the inaugural tour a huge success.

This year, SONISPHERE expands to eleven events with headliners including Iron Maiden, Metallica, and Rammstein. With an extremely impressive line up already shaping up across all eleven shows, this groundbreaking travelling rock circus is set to be an even bigger success in 2010, as it solidifies its position as the world’s leading rock festival series.
