Re: Sonisphere 2017

They have been announced for both of those yesterday, so they are about. Still not holding out any hope for soni tho... that way if it ever resurges I will only be pleasantly surprised.

Re: Sonisphere 2017

Good to see there is still some people keeping the faith! I'd be surprised to see Maiden at Knebworth after a full UK tour but stranger things have happened. You're may be right, I hadn't seen that they had added all the UK dates in May. I was just going off the Maiden England tour when they played...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

I honestly wouldn't even like to guess if Soni could pull anything out of the bag for next year, one thing that the download announcement has highlighed is that people were always going to be dissapointed unless they got Metallica / Guns. At present then I think Soni could probably bag Maiden fairly...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

Really not a good lineup for me, Its a strange one because I wouldn't mind watching Slayer, Zombie, FFDP, System, PoR and MiW. But at the same time they don't really make me wanna spend £200+ on a festival. I love system but I have always found they fall a bit flat live, seen them 3 times I think an...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

I think the biggest problem with the brand isn't that it has not gone ahead, more the fact that when its not going ahead they have always said they have started work on the following year. That was the problem this year imo, they had stated they were working on 2016 as 2015 was cancelled, Then they ...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

I think the twitter responses are even more annoying than if they said nothing at all, keeps alluding to the fact that its not on... but then why not just come out and say that. Or if they are still working in the hope that they can come up with something then just say that they are working but its ...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

I think you still have to announce it is not going ahead, like some one on facebook mentioned. They still refer to themselves as Sonisphere Festival, they still post cryptic little messages with little or no explanation ever made. What ever there intention is, from the outside looking in it appears ...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Oh fun, not looked at forums for two weeks as have been on holiday... still no news :( Going back to the discussion about announcing, I do understand why they can't say anything, and I am not annoyed about it. I think I have moved beyond being annoyed and just expect it now. I would like to hear som...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

I don't see how launching a new fest would help them one bit. The non-event years damage the Soni brand name, but its not the reason the fest doesn't go ahead. It simply comes down to the fact that they usually can't get the acts to play. I think unless they got a huge backer they are just always go...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Just out of curiosity, are there any definite links / articles that say AC/DC are not doing fests this year? or are we assuming? Not saying they could play soni, but are the dates given they only dates they are doing? or is it likely they could announce something like glasto after thier own shows ha...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Well if the speculation is true, then R/L remaining headliners are Foals/Disclosure and Biffy Clyro. The rumours are that GnR are headlining Download and IOW in 2017 as well as most major Euro festivals. Who knows maybe they will do a small festival run next year to test the waters. The main thing ...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

So no one thinks its happening right? I think the rumours are rapidly running out of steam, If GnR are anywhere then its looking more and more likely that Soni just won't be able to grab them. If that article is correct and LiveNation are sorting it then Reading / Leeds seems the likely shout. Coul...

Re: Sonisphere 2016

If no other options are available then I will probably head to DL simply because there was a festival void in my life this year and I would rather do one than none at all.

Re: Sonisphere 2016

I dunno if optimistic is the right word, but I am not pessimistic... just waiting in limbo. I like to think that if it was definitely off then they would have said something by now instead of keeping people waiting. Talks are obviously happening, just have to wait and see if they play out or not. Ei...

An e-festival admin confirmed that metalicbear is black crow, the person he keeps quoting from. I am not exactly sure what the Admin meant by that, and he has not really followed it up much.

I am still in the camp that until we hear anything further then they are obviously working on it. There are a couple of festivals who are still to announce so it looks like a bands / bands are tying up announcements still.

Re: Sonisphere 2016

Just looking at the Allmend Rockt festival site and the one thing that I have noticed is that the presented by Sonisphere only appears on the Iron Maiden day of a generic poster. On the Rammstein one their is absolutely no mention of Sonisphere. The same applies if you look at the lineup on the web...
