Unfortunately, we have to announce that this year’s Sonisphere festival at Knebworth is cancelled. Below is a statement from the promoters.

It is with very heavy hearts and much regret that we announce the cancellation of Sonisphere Knebworth 2012.

Putting the festival together in what is proving to be a very challenging year was more difficult than we anticipated and we have spent the last few months fighting hard to keep Sonisphere in the calendar.

Unfortunately circumstances have dictated that we would be unable to run the festival to a standard that both the artists and that Sonisphere’s audience would rightly expect.

We want to express our deepest regrets to the artists and to thank all the staff, suppliers and contractors who worked so hard with us to try and pull off what has proven to be an impossible task and we know how much they share in our disappointment. We also want to send a huge thanks to the Sonisphere fans who stuck by us and we are so sorry that we can’t fulfil what we set out to do.

Ticket holders will automatically receive a full refund direct from their ticket agents.

Team Sonisphere.

So glad, I live 5 minutes from Knebworth house and the awful music keeps me awake. I do love seeing the colourful characters though!

Tim, such a pity that Sonisphere is cancelled, however you could always play Avebury Rocks that weekend. A brilliant charity gig and the only one actually in a stone circle.

Hey Tim
Wh not play at Rhythms of the World instead – it’s just up the road from Knebworth and much more fun than Sonisphere?
