4th – 6th July
By Alex Loach
It has been three long years in the making, but the touring festival behemoth that is Sonisphere has finally returned to its spiritual home – the hallowed grounds of Knebworth house in Hertfordshire. As the organisers have delighted in reminding people in the run-up to the event, this is a celebration weekend, marking forty years of live music at this location. The likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and erm… Robbie Williams have all graced (and disgraced) these picturesque grounds at one time or another.
