Sonisphere – Lineup and Stages

Update: Read the review of Sonisphere 2010 including videos and pictures here.

The second UK Sonisphere held at Knebworth Park this year looks very good indeed with metal giants, Iron Maiden headlining this behemoth of festivals. I was lucky enough to attend this fantastic festival as the photographer for some of my favourite bands.

Held over 3 days (30th July – 1st August) and attracting even bigger names than it’s rival Download, Sonisphere has become the hard rock/metal festival of choice for serious music fans.

Last year’s was good with 40,000 people attending, but this years is set to be even better with the increased capacity of 60,000. Below is the un-official lineup and stages for this years festival. This will be updated as new acts are added and confirmed.
