Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper - win weekend camping tickets to see them live at Sonisphere Festival!

SONISPHERE Festival in Knebworth is back! It’s bigger and better and we want you to be there!

Because this week we have got two pairs of weekend camping passes on offer to what is becoming known as the monster rock event of the year. The passes are worth �320 per pair.

The festival takes place over three days, July 30, 31 and August 1, and you could be in the crowd to see the biggest selling metal band of all time – Iron Maiden – perform in what will be their only UK appearance in 2010.

They will be joined by German rock monsters Rammstein – who again will be making their first and only UK performance at the event.

From the west coast of America, the heaviest of the heavy, Slayer will take to the Knebworth stage to deliver furious metal delivered at breakneck speed. And complementing this performance, from New York, speed metal kings Anthrax return to Knebworth with John Bush back in the fold.

You may also want to watch:

Friday will see the festivities getting started with a Rocky Horror show theme, and Alice Cooper – the legendary godfather of theatrical rock – suitably closing the evening on the Saturn stage at his only UK festival performance of 2010.

With hits such as “Schools Out”, “Poison” and “Hey Stoopid” plus a full theatrical set, the iconic singer is the perfect focus for the evening’s theme. Fancy dress is expected and encouraged.
