The three-day hard rock and metal spectacular rolls into the grounds of Knebworth House from Friday, July 4 to Sunday, July 6.

And there will be as much lycra on show off stage as there is on it as Team Sonisphere organisers have confirmed wrestling as the fancy dress theme for the opening day of the festival.

And grapple fans will also be able to watch a few bouts in the ring at Knebworth.

A statement from Team Sonisphere said: “In honour of our Wrestling Fancy Dress Theme, we’ve invited some of the cream of British wrestling to perform at Sonisphere with the guys from professional wrestling outfit Progress Wrestling set to take to the ring at Knebworth.

“Prepare for a choke-slam as champions like Jimmy Havoc, Rhia O’Reilly, Rampage Brown and Tommy End, who is the current WXW champion, descend on Knebworth.”

The main Apollo Stage stage at Sonisphere will be headlined by The Prodigy, Iron Maiden and Metallica.

Individual day and weekend tickets for Sonisphere 2014 are on sale now at www.sonisphere.co.uk

All campsites open Thursday. Check the Sonisphere website for further details.
