Originally dreamt up to offer after-hours entertainment, Sonisphere organisers have decided to make the most of the facilities in Bohemia by keeping it open throughout the day, as well as keeping the party going until the early hours of the morning.

The music stage will host a variety of artists, scheduled in order to not conflict musically with the bands on the main stages.

The main attraction will be the two acts spawned from the mighty Slipknot, Shawn Crahan's side project Dirty Little Rabbits and frontman Corey Taylor's first UK solo acoustic appearance.

In addition, The Chapman Family, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Fighting With Wire, Rolo Tomassi and Twin Atlantic will play alongside Attack! Attack! and Cancer Bats, with more acts to be announced.

As well as the musical talent on offer, Lou Saffire will host six hours of comedy across the weekend with some of the hottest names on the circuit.

Festival veterans Gary Delaney, Sean Percival, Sully O'Sullivan, Andrew O'Neil, Craig Campbell, Jason John Whitehead and Markus Birdman will perform alongside comedians with a musical spin, such as Duncan Oakley, Woody Bop Muddy and Ivan Brackenbury.

Metallica and Linkin Park will headline the main stage over the weekend.
