Sonic Boom Six
Black Spiders frontman Pete Spiby said, "We're honoured and privileged to be playing Sonisphere again this year, this time headlining the Jager stage! Our relationship with the noble rock audience continues to delight and amaze us. Anyone who is anyone is going to be there and when we go on stage, everyone knows it's going to be one hell of a AAA party and once we see those middle fingers, we'll know that everyone there is there for one reason and one reason only…to join us on our real time musical adventure, kiss the rainbow and make it the event it should be."

Joining the Jagermeister line-up on Friday are Hammer Of The Gods, Black Breath, Slam Cartel, Decade and new UK old-school punk revivalists Flats. On the Saturday, Marshall Ultimate Band winners Sons of Icarus kick off proceedings, with Rival Sons also putting in an appearance. Joining the line up on Sunday are progressive metallers The Safety Fire, Panic Cell, Exit Ten and mojoFURY.
