MORE acts for the Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth will be revealed later this week.

A major line-up announcement that will finish off "quite nicely" the two-day camping event at Knebworth House is expected in the next couple of days.

The inaugural Sonisphere spectacular at the Hertfordshire stately home on August 1-2 will be headlined by nu-metal favourites Linkin Park and rock gods Metallica.

Veteran festival organiser Stuart Galbraith told Metal Hammer earlier this month that there will be another Sonisphere announcement after Easter.
