The word on the internet grapevine is that Sonisphere Festival 2012 has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Yes, this sucks. We love Sonisphere a lot and we love it in the present tense.

We’ve had a few confirmations from people linked to the festival but there’s no official word from the festival promoters, Kilimanjaro as of yet. We understand that an official statement will be made tomorrow, so hold tight.

So, following Iron Maiden’s all-but-announced confirmation that they’re headlining at Sonisphere 2010, we thought we’d just let slip we’ve heard from a Very Reliable Source that Rammstein will be the other headliner at Knebworth next summer. Considering both names have been touted for months, it’s hardly a big scoop, but what is interesting are some of the other names and nuggets of gossip our sources have given us.
