Fans will save over a tenner on tickets
Forthcoming new metal festival Sonisphere is abolishing booking fees for ticket buyers and issuing refunds to fans who have already paid out for them.
Organisers of the touring festival, which hits Knebworth on August 1-2 and will be headlined by Metallica and Linkin Park, have followed in the footsteps of Glastonbury in scrapping the £11.50 fee for those buying weekend and weekend camping tickets.
They are offering a refund of the levy to those who have already bought tickets.
Festival chiefs couldn’t resist a dig at the government when issuing a statement about the refunds. It read: “The festival has been working closely with all ticket agencies and we have negotiated with the House Of Commons that we will be putting booking fees through on MP’s expenses. We feel they owe you!”
The Sonisphere line-up so far is:
Alice In Chains
Bullet For My Valentine
Corey Taylor Acoustic Set
Dirty Little Rabbits
Fighting With Wire
Lamb Of God
Nine Inch Nails
Taking Back Sunday
The Chapman Family
