Sonisphere bosses have given UK metallers the news we were waiting for: the newbie travelling-festival will be hitting the UK for it’s second year next Summer. The Soni team released the following:

“It’s official! Sonisphere 2010 will take place on July 31 and August 01.
Thank you again everyone for coming to the first Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth Park in August 2009. We are really excited to announce that the first steps are being made to map out our 2010 tour across Europe and with that we are pleased to confirm our UK dates. This time the party hits Knebworth on Saturday July 31 and Sunday August 01.”

All that is left to be seen is who is going to headline the two-day event. After a blistering weekend with Linkin Park and Metallica, rumours are flying that Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Muse and even Aerosmith will take to the stages this year- whatever happens we’ll see you at the front!



Who wants their Fancore back?

‘Ello stranger! No we aren’t dead, yes we still like music and okay, fine we’ll keep writing about it for your pleasure. Where have we been? Well myself and Harley nodded off in a drunken stupor after Sonisphere and have woke up to find the site hasn’t been updated.

So screw it, we’re back and over the coming weeks and months we will be bringing hot shit such as a review of the new KISS album: Sonic Boom, an on-the-scene report from Enter Shikari levelling the Birmingham Academy and in November, a full 3-day rundown of the Hellfire Festival. We’ll also be the first and only place you need to be for the best rock, metal and punk news. Wanna read about AC/DC without skimming through the Kings of Leon articles? Then step through the doors my friends.

Fancore is back, and the revolution won’t be televised, but it will be blogged about.

All the best

Mr J.
