Howard Marks is among the latest names to sign up for Sonisphere 2011, held from 8-10 July at Knebworth.

The reformed smuggler and prolific author is set to take the Sunday Sermon, which last year was hosted by Henry Rollins.

Sean Hughes, Andrew Maxwell and Brendon Burns are set to perform their comedy routines, with Tiffany Stevenson, Nick Helm and Jim Smallman joining them on the Bohemia Stage.

They join the Big Four (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax), as well as Slipknot, Biffy Clyro and fellow comedian Bill Bailey on the line-up for the three day festival.
