NINE more bands, including Limp Bizkit, have been confirmed for the 2011 Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth House this summer.

Gallows' bass player Stuart Gili-Ross.

Limp Bizkit, The Sisters of Mercy, Gallows, Gojira, InMe, Kids in Glass Houses, One Minute Silence, Protest the Hero and Volbeat have all been added to the line-up for the three-day music event taking place in the grounds of Knebworth from Friday, July 8 to Sunday, July 10.

Chart-toppers Limp Bizkit will return to Knebworth as special guests on the Apollo stage for an exclusive English festival performance.

Fred Durst, Wes Borland, John Otto and co will take the stage before festival closers Slipknot on the Sunday night in support of forthcoming album Gold Cobra.

Knebworth will be The Sisters of Mercy’s first UK festival appearance in 20 years, while Watford hardcore punk band Gallows return outdoors having lain waste to the Bohemia tent at Knebworth last year.

French metallers Gojira also join the touring festival’s UK bill, just as the Welwyn Hatfield Times predicted after they were confirmed for Sonisphere France, which takes place the same weekend as Knebworth.

This will be their only UK festival appearance on 2011.

Homegrown heroes InMe, meanwhile, will play the Bohemia tent.
