CKY and more join Sonisphere Festival line up

Alternative metallers CKY are one of a cluster of acts that have just been added to the Sonisphere Festival line up, due to take place at Knebworth this summer.

Sweden’s Sabaton are another band now confirmed to play and will be bringing their epic battle-infused metal to the masses.

Sabaton bassist Par Sundstrom said: “This is a great opportunity for us as the UK remained a dark spot on the touring plans in the past – but now everything's going to be different.  It’s just amazingly insane to share the stage with bands like Iron Maiden, Rammstein and Motley Crüe!”

The rest of the latest additions to the festival bill are set to perform on the brand new Strongbow Bowtime Bar Stage, showcasing some of the finest up and coming talent.

Bands set to take to the new stage include All Forgotten, The Bendal Interlude, Bow and Arrow, Bury Tomorrow, Deaf Havana, Me Vs Hero and InMe.

This year’s festival will be headlined by Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper and Rammstein and features artists such as Iggy and the Stooges, Motley Crue, Pendulum, Slayer and a whole load more.
