Come on seeing as Download is looking appalling again next year this should be easy for Sonisphere to compile an amazing line-up! Come on Soni you can do this you done it before in 09,10 and 11 just do it again.

Couldn't wait any longer, took a plunge and booked up for Techfest UK so now still hoping that Sonis goes ahead but any weekend other than July 16th-19th...and I get a leave pass from the missus to do two!

That's true, although if you take away the top two from any festival day, then it suddenly looks pretty weak for obvious reasons. Mastodon subbing Airbourne or Gary Numan subbing Band of Skulls would make for a pretty dire Sonisphere.


I should have added something about replacing them with someone of a comparable quality to the other 2 days.

Not really the point. I don't just go to a festival because it actually takes place and has the least bad lineup I can find. I just save my money for the next festival I do find.

They were both booked in 2012, Cypress hill were mid apollo, refused headlined second, I don't think Refused would headline second if booked again though - especially as are doing Reading and Leeds, Mid apollo is about right for the Hill though.

Nuclear Assault and Cannibal Corpse Bloodstock exclusive so more than likely* wouldn't play soni. Though the rest of the line up could work well, if announced soon enough.



*though you can't say for sure ;)

I think GnR/ZZ SOAD/Korn doing st and Sabbath/Megadeth would reel most in tbh, either way I want to see myself watching some good bands with 50,000 other people at knebworth next year

I don't think Guns N' Roses are doing anything next year, last time they were approached, they were way too expensive for Sonisphere. Cannibal Corpse and Nuclear Assault are exclusive to BOA. Periphery are nowhere near big enough to headline Saturn, more like Bohemia tent. A lot of wrong places for bands and overall a pretty nasty lineup if I'm honest, would rather go to Download.

Not me being awkward, but where does it say/how do you know that they were too expensive?

Metalicbear providing a source? Hahahaha, that would be a Christmas miracle.

Seriously though he read it on efestivals forums.

Maybe too expensive is the wrong term, but in 2012, Kili themselves said booking Kiss on a European exclusive was a cheaper option than booking Gun's N' Roses to play whilst they were already doing a full European festival tour and had Soni weekend free.

When was the last time GnR were in Europe? Last year? I know they did that Gods of Metal festival in Italy but can't remember if it was 2012 or 2013.

Easily, even with Axl's antics, I'd much rather see them, they still have the tunes, just hopefully they'd start early enough to do a full set with the hits and aren't a million years late.

I would happily watch Kiss or GnR, both great live bands.

GnR aren't so much, if they even turn up. Also KISS< with Gene in, is like having a gooseberry on top of a decent pie
