Limp Bizkit, The Defiled, Heaven's Basement and more added to Sonisphere 2009
After hearing the rave reports of their recent festival performances throughout Europe, being inundated with requests on the Sonisforums, and blasting "Significant Other" at full volume, it is with great pleasure that we can confirm Limp Bizkit will be taking the stage at Knebworth on Sunday 2nd August. This year's reformation is one of the most talked about comebacks in recent history, and if their storming set at this year's Download is anything to go by, is set to be the most successful reformation of the year. Frontman Fred Durst comments: "We are honored to be a part of such an event as Knebworth and even more excited to be returning to England so soon. UK rocks hard!!"
We can also announce the inclusion of a brand new stage at Sonisphere to be hosted on the Jagermeister truck, showcasing the hottest unsigned new talent the uk has to offer. The ex army truck has been dramatically transformed by Jagermeister into a mobile Rock paradise.
On the Saturday, BLACKHOLE, EXIT TEN, FIN, ME VS HERO and THE DEAD FORMATS will plough their wares, with DEAR SUPERSTAR, HEAVEN'S BASEMENT, THE CRAVE, THE DEFILED and YOUNG GUNS flying the flag for the best of British Rock talent on the sunday.
As if further evidence of just how hard the UK rocks is needed, we can confirm another 5 acts at Bohemia's music stage. On the saturday, self styled brummie hardcore mob BLAKFISH, MTV2 MySpace chart heroes FAILSAFE, Glasgow screamo rockers FLOOD OF RED, new thrash heroes SYLOSIS and Alternative rockers TELEGRAPHS will be validating Mr Durst's statement. Fresh off a mammoth world tour with Iron Maiden, Rock chick and festival veteran LAUREN HARRIS will be keeping it loud on the Sunday, alongside fierce thrashers RISE TO REMAIN, who made their festival debut tearing Bloodstock attendees a new one last year
The SONISPHERE is ever closer, the line-up nearly complete, but there are still a couple of special announcements to come - watch this space!
