THE countdown has started to the first Sonisphere 2012 Festival headliner announcement for Knebworth Park this summer.

The international touring festival returns to the grounds of Knebworth House from Friday, July 6 to Sunday, July 8.

And music fans will get a clue as to who the first headliner will be on Monday night on Scuzz TV.

The UK’s biggest rock music TV station – available on Sky channel 374 and Freesat 503 – will play 13 bands from 9pm on Monday, one of which will be the first headliner revealed for the Hertfordshire festival later in the month.

A posting on Scuzz TV’s Facebook page today (Friday) said: “Coming this Monday at 9pm: our ‘Sonisphere Festival’s Mystery Headliner’ show!

“We’re going to play you 13 bands, one of which will be the first headliner to be named by Sonisphere.

“Which one of these 13 bands will be the first announced headliner for this year’s Sonisphere? You’ll have to wait and see at a future date.”

Slipknot, Biffy Clyro and thrash metal’s Big 4 – Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth – headlined the rock and metal festival last summer.

Alice Cooper, Rammstein and Iron Maiden were the 2010 headliners, with Metallica and Linkin Park topping the Sonisphere line-up in the festival’s inaugural year.
