Bill Bailey to headline at Sonisphere

Posted on 28 March 2011 by Mizzle

Bill Baily is set to headline the Saturn Arena Stage on Sunday for the largest ever live comedy performance at a UK rock festival.

Sonisphere Festival Knebworth has revealed their first batch of comedy acts for this year’s event. From the beginning, Sonisphere has proved that it’s more than just a rock festival. In its first year the mix of rock legends with Abba and Bjorn Again tribute acts with a hugely successful comedy line up, went down a real storm.

Headlining on the Sunday night is comedy hero and multi-instrumentalist Bill Bailey. Bill started out on the stand-up circuit, before having his own show commissioned by the BBC. He’s now a household name and has enjoyed great success through teaming up with Dylan Moran in Black Books.

Another comedy act at Sonisphere this year is Jackass superstar Steve-O. There are very few men who have inflected as much damage to themselves for entertainment as Steve-0. With his previous shows consisting of hilarious anecdotes and shocking stunts, including balancing knives on his face whilst squeezing fresh lime juice in his eyes, this is something not to be missed.

Sonisphere Knebworth Festival takes place 8th – 10th July 2011.
