Along with Nine Inch Nails, we can confirm that Aussie hellraisers, Airbourne are also going to performing at the UK leg of Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth this summer on 01 & 02 August 2009.

We announced yesterday that Nine Inch Nails would be playing. We were right. Amazingly, despite the official announcement being at 9am on Monday, 08 March 2009, adverts for the festival – like the one below – are already up all over the place.

We interviewed the uninterviewable last year at Download Festival 2008 when we had a chat to Airbourne drummer, Justin Street. It was actually written at the top of the promo sheet: “Justin is NOT to be interviewed.” Guess this was an exclusive then!

What’s been the highlight of Download Festival 2008?
Playing was awesome but I’m looking forward to drinking a lot. I don’t do a lot of interviews. I’m not allowed.
If you had to share a hotel room with one band tonight, who would it be?
There was someone cool playing… I can’t remember who it was. Judas Priest? Judas Priest!
