More Sonisphere 2011 surprises in store for Knebworth festival-goers

ORGANISERS of this summer’s Sonisphere 2011 Festival are lining up a few more surprises for rock fans at Knebworth House.

After revealing what was supposed to be the final batch of bands for the UK leg of Sonisphere, promoters have managed to squeeze in another five slots to bring even more music to Knebworth, as well as six DJ sets to deliver raging after-hours parties.

Japanese Voyeurs, Turbogeist, No Americana, Lower Than Atlantis and You And What Army have all been added to the biggest and best rock and metal line-up of the summer.

But Knebworth festival-goers can expect more entertainment to be revealed before the gates to the July spectacular open at Knebworth Park.

A statement from organisers said: “Although Sonisphere is now crammed full of fantastic acts, organisers may still find room for a couple more surprises – watch this space!”
