The inaugural Sonisphere at Knebworth House in 2009 was headlined by Linkin Park and Metallica.

School’s Out shock-rocker Alice Cooper, German industrial metallers and pyrotechnic lovers Rammstein and heavy metal legends Iron Maiden topped the bill at the Hertfordshire stately home in 2010.

Thrash metal’s Big 4 – Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth – opened the sold-out 2011 festival on the Friday.

Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro and masked Iowa metallers Slipknot headlined the following two days.
