The comeback event, last staged in 2011, will also feature headline sets from Iron Maiden and Metallica, the latter offering fans the chance to decide their setlist as part of their 'By Request' world tour.

The Prodigy emerged in the early nineties as a forerunner of the new underground rave scene and crossed into the mainstream with a string of hits from their debut 'Experience' and follow-up 'Music for the Jilted Generation'. Their third record 'The Fat of the Land', released in 1997, was to be their breakthrough smash and spawn a raft of hits, including 'Smack My Bitch Up', 'Firestarter' and 'Breathe'.

Founder Liam Howlett said today: "We cant wait to play Sonisphere 2014 , we will be hittin u with some brand new beats and noise. Respecto The Prodigy." [Sic]
