*SONISPHERE INCREASES CAPACITY – EXTRA DAY TICKETS AVAILABLE*

*SONISPHERE INCREASES CAPACITY –
EXTRA DAY TICKETS AVAILABLE*

After a fantastic response to the day ticket “Power Ballot” scheme launched by organisers last month, SONISPHERE FESTIVAL has successfully applied for increased capacity for the 2011 event at KNEBWORTH, and has received approval to release more tickets.

 

Due to space restrictions on the campsite, the increased capacity does not allow for extra weekend/camping tickets to be made available, but an extra allocation of single day tickets are on sale now. Day tickets are priced at £80 + booking fee and are available from www.sonispherefestivals.com

 

With weekend camping tickets nearly sold out, those wishing to come and enjoy the full weekend and all SONISPHERE has to offer are advised to secure their tickets quickly.

 

SONISPHERE KNEBWORTH takes place 8th – 10th July 2011 at KNEBWORTH HOUSE. For tickets and more info go to www.sonispherefestivals.com

Editors notes:

 

SONISPHERE Festival was established in 2009 and received the award “Best New Festival’ at the 2009 UK Festival Awards. That year the festival visited six different European countries, taking in Holland, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Finland and England, making it the world’s largest internationally touring festival. 2010 saw SONISPHERE make metal history by bringing metal’s BIG 4 – Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax – together for the first time, and taking yet more awards, with Festival promoters Kilimanjaro Live and K2 awarded European Promoter Of The Year at the 2010 European Festival Awards, the Finnish event receiving the Best Festival In Finland Summer 2010 in one of the country’s biggest newspapers, Ilta Sanomat, plus a shortlisting at the Digital Music Awards for the live cinecast of the Bulgarian SONISPHERE. It also sold its millionth ticket as a festival in 2010, an impressive milestone for such a young festival.

 

Now, just two years after its inception, SONISPHERE Festival has doubled to twelve European countries and has become the world’s foremost festival tour. This year headliners across Europe include Iron Maiden, Metallica, Linkin Park and Slipknot, with the three day UK event at KNEBWORTH boasting headline sets from The BIG 4, BIFFY CLYRO and SLIPKNOT, leaving no doubt that SONISPHERE is the world’s greatest international festival.
