Sonisphere UK update 28 Jan 11
Posted by Reggie
Slipknot was the first band to be announced as a headliner for the Sonisphere festival UK. I was pretty much sold on that day right off the bat since I have yet to see Slipknot live. I hear its a spectacular show. Then another headliner was announced in the form of Biffy Clyro. I scratched my head on that one, but I have to remember that festivals are supposed to have a little of everything for everyone. I guess I can’t complain with that because it made my decision to see Slipknot even easier. Then there was the big news…Sonisphere promoters signed up the Big Four for their first ever Big Four UK appearance. Sorry Slipknot, I will be buying a different day pass for my participation in this year’s Sonisphere UK weekend.
So to recap so far, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax will be headlining the Friday 8 July show, Biffy Clyro on the 9th, and Slipknot on the 10th. The latest announcement listed a few more bands to the mix, but did not list which day they would play. They are:
Motorhead – Classic
In Flames – No real experience with this band
Parkway Drive – never heard them
Mastodon – Seen them once; this band made my list of bands I think I should like, but do not…and I still don’t know why.
So there you have the latest for Sonisphere. There are probably 90+ bands yet to be announced. Are you going to go? Which day?
