Machine Head pulls out of Sonisphere Knebworth. Read the band statement below :
“In a turn of events that has left us absolutely baffled, the promoter of the U.K. Sonisphere festival recently placed, unbeknownst to us, LIMP BIZKIT in our third slot on the festival. Seeing as the running order was a significant part of the negotiation and agreement between us and the promoter, and the fact that we had been advertised in that slot since the festival’s announcement, you can imagine our surprise when we were ‘told’ that we would now be playing in the fourth slot, under LIMP BIZKIT, and bizarrely, it was actually expected that we would quietly move down the bill without issue. We will not.”
Machine Head will still be appearing at Sonisphere Festivals in Spain (where they have now been moved to a main stage slot), Finland and Sweden. Stay tuned for further band additions at Sonisphere Knebworth in the next week.
