We may end up looking at a one days notice for the UK one, too. Eyes peeled for the next week or so, I guess, and a big eye on the non-Maiden headliner and subheadliners announced for France, because they'll be very possible for Knebworth.

Soni france won't have any relation to Knebworth at all in my opinion. They will probably be Download Festival related bands.

one headliner wont though - unless they book slipknot. So theres that. Plus some undercard still could, as its close enough to both but aye I reckon most of the undercard will be shared with Download - though lots of those bands will be at RaR/iP and DL and Soni France clashes with RaR/iP so the undercard could vary?

2 year old background, English writing, wrong sponsors, only 1 band announced. Nice Try Defsteve.

It's from official Sonisphere site. I just uploaded (a) in case it was deleted and (b) it was massive.

So unless they are 'trolling' ;)

You can change a URL for an image on the Sonisphere France upload site ?

Go on then....

I don't know how to do it personally, but I know you can redirect it.

You do this every year :lol:

I was just posting the link that some French dude posted on the Sonisphere France Facebook page

http://www.facebook.com/sonispherefrance

It was on the right-hand side in the recent posts by others section. Posted about an hour ago. The comment however seems to have been deleted :!:

It's obvious that Maiden will be headlining, but I don't think the poster is right. It will probably along the lines of what they currently have on the splash page.

I'm more interested in the SOAD rumour to be honest.

Interestingly, the picture in the link I posted above has now been removed from the Sonisphere site.

Hence why I uploaded in case it was deleted....

Similar picture leaked for Italy.

Defsteve may actually be on to something, this time.

There was also something on Twitter about a poster leak of Maiden for Sonisphere Getafe, May 31st. (EDIT: )

Surprised it's just one name but I guess more will follow in the coming weeks.

I still don't believe it.

Why would they go for a 2 year old poster design. Why is there no "many more bands still to be announced", why no information in their respective language, why are the UK sponsors on the foreign posters. Why is the Maide logo stupidly big for the poster.

It could definitely be a well-planned trick.

The Spain screenshot looks legit though.

I agree. A black background with the Zodiac circle is what I'm expecting to be on the poster, not the 2011 design :lol:

Lots of Maiden-y goodness.


I like the way a French mock-up poster is on the Spanish site :lol:

EDIT: The Maiden video is also on the French site, just change the "es" to "fr". No change yet on the England or Poland pages.

EDIT EDIT: Looks like they're all using the French page as a placeholder, the Finland one is identical.

It's a cool step away from the whole "space" thing.

So it looks like France are the one with Maiden locked in, not that that's surprising. The rest, who knows.

Those posters aren't legit. The poster background for this year is the same as the background of the splash page.

They could be a test poster, but that proves nothing so far.
