Knebworth prepares to rock to the sound of Rammstein, Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden
ONE of the biggest pyrotechnic shows you are ever likely to see has been promised, when German rockers Rammstein take to the stage at this year’s Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth Park.
As the countdown to this weekend’s rock festival continues apace, organiser Stuart Galbraith spoke to the WHT at a press conference in the grounds of the stately home today (Tuesday).
Referring to Rammstein’s headline slot on Saturday evening, he said: “This will be the biggest pyrotechnic and special effects show I have ever put on in 25 years in the music business.”
He added: “It is the first time that Rammstein have ever played a festival in the UK and this will be their biggest show here to date.”
This year’s festival, which will be held over three days, will also be headlined by US rock legend Alice Cooper on Friday and British metal behemoths Iron Maiden on Sunday.
