  LATE NIGHT ENTERTAINMENT AT SONISPHERE ANNOUNCED
22 June 2014

With just two weekends separating tens of thousands of rock fans from Sonisphere festival, organisers have outlined the late night entertainment on offer after the headline acts have finished their sets.

Kicking things off on the Thursday night, club gurus Voodoo Rock will take over Bohemia to host the first party of the weekend. Usually resident in London, they will be bringing their team of DJs and party hosts for a huge punk/ grunge/ ska/ emo/ rock/ Metal party to the big blue tent for one night only.

Following the Voodoo Rock party, and now a mainstay at Sonisphere, the unmissable Alternative Karaoke gives people the chance to sing the songs they want to sing. Maiden? Pantera? Slayer? Rammstein? Yes to all of these, and and many, many, many more. Start warming up now...

Thursday also sees the first ever Kerrang! Party held at Sonisphere. James McMahon and Alex Baker from Kerrang! will be taking to the decks and playing the greatest rock and roll party tunes in the world right now. So excited about having the legendary rock champions throw a party, they've been invited back to do the same again at Bohemia on the Saturday night too.

There's also some fantastic live acts booked for late night performances. On the Friday, catch Sheffield's 65daysofstatic with their mindblowing instrumental set of electronic math proggery, followed by Mixhell. Boasting live percussion from ex Sepultura sticksman Iggor Cavalera, Mixhell will do whatever it takes to make you dance, combining elements of dance, electronica, electroclash, hip hop and rock'n'roll, and mixing a live drum and bass section with samples and loops to unique effect.

Last up on the Friday comes Infamy. Last seen at Sonisphere roadblocking Bohemia (then going under the name of A1bassline), Infamy will treat the late night revellers to a tear out Drum & Bass set into the early hours.

In 2011 The Sisters Of Mercy made a late night appearance at Bohemia for their first festival performance in 20 years. Captivating and magical, the prospect of inviting them back for another late night set was irresistible, and so they return to treat Bohemia to another unforgettable performance on the Saturday night.

Commemorating 20 years since the passing of Kurt Cobain and following the footsteps of Bat Sabbath, Nirvana Defiled make their first ever performance anywhere in tribute to the Seattle grunge legends. The last live performance of the weekend, Stitch D, Vincent Hyde and Needles of The Defiled will take to Bohemia to honour their fallen hero for a late night Sunday set.

Following Niravana Defiled, Sonisphere welcomes Ultimate Power to close proceedings in Bohemia. Ultimate Power is, quite simply, an evening of the greatest songs ever written. A communal appreciation of colossal musical compositions from the titans of Power Ballads; Messrs Collins, Loaf, Tyler and Jovi and many, many more besides.

Bring your Air instruments and throat sweets. Leave your inhibitions at the bar and come follow us to the promised land where pure balladic power will move you to your very core - there is no better finale!

Across the weekend, in honour of this year's fancy dress theme, there will be powerslamming, piledriving, facebusting entertainment courtesy of Progress Wrestling. With champions such as Jimmy Havoc and Rampage Brown competing in breathtaking exhibition bouts, the Satellite stage will swap the rock for blood, sweat and tears.

After the live performances have finished over at the Jagermeister tent, it will transform into the Silent Arena - a cheeky way of evading the noise curfews, the Silent Arena's disco is powered by wireless headphones, and even allows you to choose between DJs.

In addition to the entertainment on offer at the Bohemia, Jagermeister and Satellite stages, Sonisphere's information tent has been taken over by the Cult Of Love & Gratitude. A mecca for Luchador fanatics over the world, the Cult Of Love & Gratitude believe in 5 basic principles.

- Seriously good sound systems
- Wrestling Aerobics
- Luchador Twister
- Lucha Jenga
- Hard Partying & Secret Sects.

A regular information tent by day, by night the walls come in and an intimate party starts powered by the latest Cerwin Vega P Series PA. In their own words, "We don't stop partying until we are being carted off by the boss. Your last bastion of hope in a world that has forgotten the old gods."

For those feeling all partied out, there's also the option to take a seat in front of the Saturn stage for a Metal history lesson. As part of the Thrashback campaign, the ultimate Thrash Metal documentary Get Thrashed will be played out on the giant screens either side of the Saturn stage after the bands have finished on the Saturday. Featuring headliners Metallica alongside Megadeth, Slayer, Pantera, Anthrax, Slipknot, Exodus and many other hugely influential names, the award winning film is a must-see for any self-respecting Metalhead.

Individual day and weekend tickets for Sonisphere 2014 are on sale now at www.sonisphere.co.uk. Check the Sonisphere website for further details.

All Campsites open Thursday.
