The Prodigy to headline Sonisphere Festival 2014
Story by Jack Foley
THE Prodigy have been announced as the third headline act for Sonisphere Festival 2014.
The news follows last week’s unveiling of Iron Maiden and Metallica as a co-headline act at the Knebworth Park venue, which is celebrating the 40th anniversary of rock concerts being held at the grounds.
Prodigy member member Liam Howlett commented: “We can’t wait to play Sonisphere 2014. We will be hitting you with some brand new beats and noise.”
A spokesperson from the festival added: “We are ecstatic to announce that The Prodigy will be making a triumphant return to Knebworth to take up the position as the Friday night headliner on Sonisphere 2014, having previously played a legendary show with Oasis in 1996 to a 250,000-strong crowd.
“Famous for the sort of energy-fuelled, insane and pulsating show that you can feel in your bones, we know that The Prodigy will bring something very special to Sonisphere.
“Adding this to the already announced headliner sets of Iron Maiden and Metallica is pretty much guaranteed to get the very foundations of Knebworth House shaking.”
This year’s Sonisphere takes place from July 4 to 6, 2014, and Prodigy headline on the Friday, followed by Iron Maiden on the Saturday and Metallica on the Sunday.
