Win pair of weekend tickets to Sonisphere Festival

THE 2010 Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth is just days away and you could be there if you win our latest music competition.

Iron Maiden, Rammstein, Placebo, Pendulum, Alice Cooper, M�tley Cr�e, Anthrax, Iggy And The Stooges, The Cult, Slayer, Alice In Chains, Papa Roach… the names read like a who’s who of hard rock and heavy metal.

And they will all be on stage at Knebworth next weekend.

Have you got your Sonisphere Festival tickets yet?

If not, don’t worry, the Welwyn Hatfield Times could have the perfect answer.

For we have teamed up with the festival’s organisers to offer TWO pairs of weekend camping passes – worth more than �300 a pair – for what promises to be the county’s biggest and noisiest weekend of music mayhem.

Now over three days and six stages, the festival from July 30 to August 1 is jam-packed with monsters of rock.
