Festival line-up update: Sonisphere UK, Field Day, Primavera Sound and more

By | Published on Tuesday 3 December 2013


So, the resurgent UK edition of Sonisphere – which as previously reported will return in 2014 post a two year hiatus – has named Iron Maiden and Metallica as its first pair of headliners. Metallica, who’ll play one of their fan-voted ‘by request’ sets, played the first ever Sonisphere UK back in 2009, so that’s a nice symmetrical fact.

In other festival news, over at London’s now-weekend-long Field Day, it’s now public information that Metronomy will headline the event’s first day festivities. They and closing day dons Pixies lead a bill also featuring Sky Ferreira, Warpaint, Jon Hopkins, Jessy Lanza and The Temper Trap. Cool.
