Both Metallica and Iron Maiden headlined their first ever Knebworth concerts under the Sonisphere banner and now the pairing return to Knebworth Park for the first Sonisphere festivals at the site since 2011. Sonisphere 2014 will be the  first time both bands have appeared together on a British bill and will also mark their only UK live shows of 2014.

Fans who purchase tickets online will also get the chance to vote on the set list Metallica will play at Sonisphere - choosing 17 of the 18 track setlist on the night.

Sonisphere Festival takes place at Knebworth Park, near Stevenage, Hertfordshire from 4-6 July 2014.

The Sonisphere organisers released this statement: "During our two year absence we’ve continued to believe in and work hard on Sonisphere. We said in 2013 that if we had the right line up then we would be back, and that’s exactly what we’ve got in 2014. The omens were obviously on our side when we secured the two biggest and best metal acts of all time in the year that also brings the 40th anniversary of the first concert at Knebworth.
"Our excitement at being able to offer Metallica and Iron Maiden on the same bill for the first time ever has been hard to contain. To do so in a year of great celebration for the iconic venue is very satisfying. Sonisphere 2014 is going to be a legendary year!"
