The organisers of the British leg of the Sonisphere festival has announced the event will be held once again at Knebworth next year and will feature headlining slots from Iron Maiden and Rammstein. In addition to this, Alice Cooper, Anthrax, Slayer, Iggy & The Stooges, Motley Crue and The Cult will all be making apperances at the festival, which will take place between July 31st and August 1st.

Speaking on the festival, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian stated: "God-damn we couldn’t be more thrilled about being a part of Sonisphere 2010!!!! We are still buzzing from our insane show at Knebworth last summer and are drooling over the fact that we are a part of this history making festival!! What an amazing Xmas present for Anthrax and our fans. See you all very soon!!"

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson says: "Knebworth has been the home of so many legendary concerts going back many years it really will be a privilege to play there. We enjoy the camaraderie of playing great festivals and are very much looking forward to getting back out to do some shows next summer and, as it will be over two years since we played the UK, we will certainly be looking to deliver a memorable and spectacular night for our fans!"

Rammstein say: "The great support that we’ve experienced from the UK fans has been beyond anything we expected. This will be the first time that Rammstein has appeared at a festival in the UK and we are looking forward to putting on a show that no-one will ever forget!"
