Re: Sonisphere 2019

Apparently AEG are looking to launch a new festival at Knebworth next year; to be headlined by The Rolling Stones. So I guess that kills off all hope of Sonisphere returning. I still think Kili will make Stone Free an Outdoor event with camping at some point, probably with Maiden as their first mega...

I could quite easily see:
DL- Metallica, LP, BMTH
Soni - Maiden, Slipknot, Leppard (or BSC)

Sure others will be in the mix too - Ozzy's already looking at releasing solo stuff next year isn't he?


Heard Foo's for Reading/Leeds next year and QOTSA/ Ozzy for Download so far.

Re: Sonisphere 2019

Festivals seem to be struggling across the board this year, wouldn't surprise me if a few more don't happen next year. With that being said, a few struggling events seem to be clinging on for life; apparently they're already working on Stone Free and Ramblin Man 2018. I think Sonisphere as a brand i...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

There are so many bands around in the summer, I wonder if Kili even bothered working on the event or if they just thought frakk it we will concentrate on Stone Free, which flopped massively last year. Makes no sense whatsoever. I still stand by what I said before that Kili should create a new festiv...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

Potentially very bad news. Rock Im Revier is cancelled. Rock in Vienna has been cut back to 1 day. Rockavaria is said to only be in the planning stage. Sonisphere Swizterland/ Allmend Rocks has been cancelled as well (despite selling 70k tickets for 2016). Not sure how DEAG's events will affect Kili...

Still Rammstein, Linkin Park, Blink 182, RHCP, Foo Fighters without a UK festival, rumours about BMTH supposedly headlining a UK festival. Metallica could still happen. There was also rumours a couple of months ago of Bon Jovi playing ...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

I think RHCP are Sonisphere's most likely big hitter if they go ahead. Played R/L last year, not playing Download, played DEAG's festivals last year, Kili are promoting their tour, playing festivals in July, seems the most likely option.

Kiss/ Def Leppard - Linkin Park - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Lollapalooza Paris in July is rumoured to have RHCP. With Kili promoting their tours in December, could we possibly get them as well, perhaps announced after their tour?

Re: Sonisphere 2017

Kili need to stop trying to compete with Livenation and stop letting pride get in the way. All this bull-shit of we couldn't find the right calibre headliner so we're not going to put an event on at all just pisses people off and they lose faith. I'm sure that on off years if they had to bump bands ...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

I think the best chance they've got is to try and tempt Metallica to hit Europe this Summer.

If not I can see Stone Free returning on a much larger scale.

Re: Sonisphere 2017

I think there's a lot of scenario's in play. There's the possibility of a UK Knotfest, perhaps Kili could promote it and have it at Knebworth in collaboration with a Sonisphere event. DEAG are said to want to expand to more territories so perhaps we might end up with a DEAG festival at Knebworth rep...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

I would have thought Download will probably offer them massive money not to play Sonisphere.

I think if we're to get any of the major players we will end up with an end of the tour show from Maiden.

Re: Sonisphere 2017

Maiden are apparently doing an arena tour next year, so can't see them being at Sonisphere. I reckon Metallica will do the Euro legs of the tour as well as the DEAG events. Due to how early on in the year they are, think Metallica will end up at Download. On some Rockavaria forums, they think the Ro...

Re: Sonisphere 2017

If they scaled down, they wouldn't be competing with Download as they would be going for different bands, they wouldn't be endlessly competing with Download and Reading for Metallica, instead they would be offering full headline sets to bands like Volbeat.

I know what you mean bear but I meant the event when it goes ahead isn't broken. I agree that the name is tarnished but I don't agree with them starting up another event of the same nature and then pushing that to a rebranded Soni. Why not get the band they have for stone free at Soni and like some...
