Bill Bailey Remembers Sonisphere 2011
"My enduring memory of Sonisphere 2011will always be of the fantastic reaction of the crowd. I've always been in the whimsy tents at festivals in the past so the view from the Saturn Stage was one of the best I have ever seen.
"There were thousands of hands waving in the air despite a classic English festival downpour and while the signs on the stalls may have said Stevenage that crowd just said K-n-e-b-w-o-r-t-h to me. You just can't help but channel the past from a location that has hosted all of the greats and that coupled with the fact that Heavy Metal fans are easily the most intense in their appreciation of music, really makes Sonisphere a unique event.
"And not only did I get to headline but I also got to watch some fantastic bands. Mastadon, Biffy Clyro, Slipknot, Weezer and Airbourne were all awesome. Here's to Sonisphere 2012!"
