Sonisphere 2014 late night lineup announced

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 SONISPHEREroadblocking BOHEMIA (then going under the name of A1bassline), INFAMYwill 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 atBOHEMIA 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 DEFILEDSONISPHERE welcomes ULTIMATE POWER to close proceedings in BOHEMIAULTIMATE 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 ofPROGRESS WRESTLING. With champions such as Jimmy Havoc and Rampage Brown competing in breathtaking exhibition bouts, the SATELLITEstage will swap the rock for blood, sweat and tears.
