Parkway Drive singer Winston McCall said of their exclusive festival appearance at Sonsiphere, "Holy crap they're actually letting us play this thing!!! Sonisphere 2011!!! I don't think we can really describe how excited we are to play, and I think Jeff will probably die when Metallica play!"

They join the previously announced Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth & Anthrax headlining the Friday night, Biffy Clyro headlining on Saturday and Slipknot on Sunday.

A limited number of three-day non-camping tickets are available from £140, while full weekend camping tickets start from £165.

A non-refundable deposit scheme is also running to allow festival-goers to secure their tickets now for £50 each, with the balance payable by 1st March 2011.

Sonisphere takes place at Knebworth House, Hertfordshire from Friday 8th until Sunday 11th July 2011.

The event has one main arena with a stage at either end of the site, as well as a few smaller stages. The two main outdoor stages, will have around a dozen acts alternating between one stage and another to keep the music continuous, whilst not having two acts playing at the same time.
