Sonisphere is the world’s largest touring rock festival, taking place over 3 days at Knebworth Park (a venue steeped in rock heritage) in the UK and rolling across 11 other European countries.
In the UK, Sonisphere packs over 140 of the greatest, heaviest bands on the planet onto its six stages. A unique and welcome feature is the ‘flip-flopping’ of the two main ‘Apollo’ and ‘Saturn’ stages, situated opposite one another, allowing fans to catch all of the main acts in full. A wealth of up-and-comers and familiar favourites adorn the surrounding Bohemia, Red Bull Jam, Strongbow and Jagermeister stages.
Far more than just big bands in a field, Sonisphere is renowned for its infectious character and uplifting atmosphere. Located between the campsite and the main arena, the Bohemia Village offers a heady mix of entertaining carnage, set against a Moulin-Rouge-meets-Mad-Max background, and forms the focal point of the customary Thursday night fancy dress party (this year’s theme: Superheroes!). In addition to the abundance of music, the festival’s feast of attractions include big name comedy acts, fairground rides, food and market stalls and plenty of after-hours action with a silent disco, metal karaoke and much more.
Sonisphere was brought to the world by veteran rock promoter Stuart Galbraith (of Kilimanjaro Live) and progresses a legacy set by his previous creations Download and Monsters Of Rock.
