IRON MAIDEN To Headline Poland's SONISPHERE; SLIPKNOT And MOTÖRHEAD Also Rumored

British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN will headline the Polish installment of the Sonisphere festival on Friday, June 10, 2011 at the 100,000-capacity Bemowo Airfield in Warsaw. According to Antyradio, the biggest rock radio station in Poland, SLIPKNOT and MOTÖRHEAD will also perform at the event, although this has not yet been officially confirmed by the festival organizers.

The first-ever "Big Four" concert — featuring METALLICA, MEGADETH, SLAYER and ANTHRAX — was held on June 16, 2010 at the Sonisphere festival at the Bemowo Airfield. This year's event was attended by around 85,000 people and was reportedly the biggest rock/metal concert ever to be held in Poland.
