Hey Guys! First post!

Anyway was just wondering if you've heard of this new festival. Starts on the 1st of August and its not sold out yet due to it being in its first year but it has a killer lineup imo!
Anyway the last few announcements were a few days ago.
Paradise Lost were announced to start the festival on the Sunday and Bjorn Again announced to play on the Saturday playing abba tracks in a hard rock/heavy metal style They also will be playing a metallica song in their encore, voted by the sonisphere forums. http://www.sonisphereforums.com Hopefully Dyer's Eve will be picked
The Fuel girls will also be at Sonisphere, self confirmed on their site...http://www.fuelgirls.co.uk/tour.asp
And finally, after hearing speculation that Dan Nelson had quit Anthrax causing their EU tour to be cancelled, people were crossing their fingers that they would not have to drop out of the Sonisphere lineup. Last night the announcement came that instead of dropping out, Anthrax will play a one off performance with their old vocalist John Bush. A performance that's not to be missed.

The lineup poster now looks like this:



So that's Sonisphere for 2009, next weekend. Looking to be an awesome weekend. Actually can't wait!
For anyone who's planning to buy a last minute ticket please use my founder's member code to get into a free party on the Friday night. My code is

This morning the lineup poster was changed with a new special guest slot added!
Going by rumours it is very likely that Machine Head will come back and reclaim their old slot at the festival! Making the lineup even better! It's also rumoured that the announcement will be made over the new Metal Hammer radio show on NME radio station tonight which is from 7pm till 9pm. Tune in

The lineup poster looks like this...

I'm going to this Can't wait! Gonna be my first (and likely last) time seeing NIN, and there's loads of other bands there that I'm really looking forward to (LP, Coheed, Oceansize, Twin Atlantic, Metallica).

I didn't even notice the new Special Guests slot o:
Wonder who's filling that, it would be good if Machine Head came back =]

basically because Sonisphere is in it's first year and doesn't get the media coverage festivals like Download and Reading & Leeds do, they came up with this idea where the people who bought their tickets first got a founder's member code like the one I posted. It's their job to just tell other about the festival and its lineup. When someone uses the code as a reward for that person they get invited to a free party on the friday night with live music, dj's, a burlesque show and HOPEFULLY free booze As a reward to the person who gave them the code they get a free tshirt for the first person who uses it and the rewards get better the more people who use it Hoping to get a few people to use mine if I can
#14
so a few people can use the same code?

cause' free stuff is my favourite kind of stuff

lmaoo yes lots of people can use the same code when buying tickets.
the rewards are as follows...
if one person uses it : a Sonisphere tshirt
if two people use it: 2 Sonisphere tshirts
if 4 people use it: A free ticket to Sonisphere 2010
if 7 people use it: A VIP ticket to Sonisphere 2010

Not bad really plus the more people who use it and come to Sonisphere, the better this year's festival will be and next years festival as more revenue brought in this year means bigger and better bands next year

It never got announced on the radio show
infact the Sonisphere twitter guy suggested that the slot may be left as special guest until the actual festival as a surprise

I'll definatley be off then providing theres still tickets left in a few days time.



To use your code would I have to use the link you gave or can I just go through seetickets.com and make my way through that way?

(Your links not working, so if I do need it could you kindly repost?)
