Sonisphere Knebworth Cancelled

Sonisphere Knebworth has been cancelled.

A statement was published today on the UK festival’s website: “Putting the festival together in what is proving to be a very challenging year was more difficult than we anticipated and we have spent the last few months fighting hard to keep Sonisphere in the calendar. Unfortunately circumstances have dictated that we would be unable to run the festival to a standard that both the artists and that Sonisphere’s audience would rightly expect.”

The festival was expected to feature a number of acts — Faith No More was set to headline the festival, while Glassjaw was confirmed to play their 2002 album Worship & Tribute in its entirety.
