Sonisphere rocks 250,000
90,000 people partied into the early hours over the two days at Sonisphere Madrid on 25th and 26th May. Having already seen an attendance of 50,000 in Warsaw, Poland, the 4th edition of the Spanish leg was the second stop on this year’s Sonisphere festival tour. Metal legends Metallica headlined both Warsaw and Madrid (along with Soundgarden) and then went on to close the show at Sonisphere in Yverdon, Switzerland to a 35,000 capacity crowd, before moving on to Helsinki, Finland where the festival sold out a capacity of 47,000 in advance. Faith No More and Evanescence take over the headline duties at the final Sonisphere festival of the season at Snowhall Park, D’amneville, France on 7-8 July. The fourth edition of the touring Sonisphere festival will play to over 250,000 people this year.
