The Prodigy to Perform at Sonisphere 2014

British dance legends The Prodigy have been announced as the third and final headliner at next year’s Sonisphere Festival.

The event that runs from July 4th-6th marks the 40th anniversary of festivals hosted at Knebworth Park in Hertfordshire and also features Metal legends Iron Maiden and Metallica playing on the same British bill for the first time in their long and illustrious careers.

Basically this year will be an odd combination of tracksuits, long hair and leather while everyone gets off their tits bouncing about to Voodoo People. All this now needs is Skrillex to bring his electronic chainsaw noises and drag along his mates in Korn to create a gargantuan musical gangbang the likes of which has not been seen since the rap metal glory days of 2001.

Like a phoenix rising from the flames of two cancelled events, Sonisphere is lacing up its boxing gloves to go toe to toe with Download for the 2014 rock festival crown. Booking three of the biggest bands in the world to headline is a good start.

Earlybird discounted weekend tickets are currently on sale online at all good ticketing outlets.
