Metallica are set for a headline slot at the UK leg of next year's Sonisphere Festival.

They are set to be joined on the bill on the Friday (July 8) of the Knebworth Park event by Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth. All four bands are touring Europe together as a part of the Big 4 tour, with a headline slot at Sonisphere the centrepiece of the gig run.
