Sonisphere organisers have confirmed that Alice In Chains, Slayer, Mastodon, Airbourne, Ghost, Gojira and Karnivool will bolster the festival’s bill when it takes over Knebworth Park later this year.
The bands will join headliners the Prodigy, Iron Maiden and Metallica at the famous venue between July 4 and 6.
Airbourne’s Joel O’Keeffe said:
“With monumental metal juggernauts Iron Maiden and Metallica coming to shakeKnebworth to the core along with Bruce Dickinson also announcing it will be the last concert of the ‘Maiden England’ tour this is a rock’n’roll event in time that can’t be missed. We are deeply honored to have the green light for anAirbourne/Knebworth assault, to get out there on Knebworth’s hallowed ground in front of that sea of heavy metal maniacs and give them every ounce of blood sweat and energy we got.”
Further acts, including two special guests, will be announced shortly, while early bird weekend tickets are on sale now at Eventim, priced at £180 + p&p.
