Festival line-up update: Sonisphere UK, FM4 Frequency and Desertfest

By | Published on Tuesday 7 January 2014


So, the Brit edition of Sonisphere has dialled-up its noise factor (this c/o co-2014-headliners Iron Maiden, Metallica and the Prodigy) by adding Slayer, Alice In Chains, Mastodon and others to its ranks.

Joe of French metallers Gojira, also late additions, confirms his band’s booking with the words: “We are super excited to return to the UK to play the Sonisphere festival at legendary Knebworth this year. We can’t wait to come and kick your British asses!”

Speaking for prog-rock Aussies Karnivool, guitarist Drew Goddard says: “We can’t bloody wait to get back to play Sonisphere UK 2014. Sonisphere Knebworth was actually the first European Festival we ever played a few years ago, so it will be nice to come back and kick some grass and have people know who we are!”

Also kicking ass (and grass), it’s details of Skrillex, QOTSA and Blink 182’s imminent arrival at Austrian bash FM4 Frequency, and info on Norwegian deathheads Kverlertak’s headlining pact with London’s Desertfest…
