After the huge success of SONISPHERE 2010, the world’s only internationally touring festival moves forward with preparations for its third year. SONISPHERE KNEBWORTH comes earlier in 2011, taking place from July 8th through to July 10th.
Iowa’s favourite sons, Slipknot will perform this summer at Sonisphere, including an exclusive UK performance at Knebworth.
One of the biggest bands in the world, UK headbangers have embraced their fiercely heavy yet enchantingly melodic sound from the off, with 1999’s “Slipknot” album achieving platinum status here. Now Slipknot returns, bringing their famously chaotic live show to Knebworth for the first time. UK festival goers are in for a devastating delight, when the green grass of Knebworth shakes with the vibrations of tens of thousands of Maggots moshing in unison.
Say Slipknot: “We’re looking forward to spending our summer in Europe. This tour is about us and our fans. It’s about celebrating the life of our brother, Paul and his legacy. The door is neither open nor closed. This tour is about burning down that door. See you this summer.”
