Sonisphere!

This summer FashionCapital will be teaming up with muician network Listenout.net to cover music and style at Sonisphere festival!

With some of the biggest alternative acts performing this is hotting up to be one of the best festivals this festival season! Described by THE GUARDIAN as “The UK’s premier metal festival” music lovers will be flocking in their thousands to Knebsworth to bask in the English sun and the crazy atmosphere!

Last year our coverage uncovered shopping and style tips from music industry execs, stars such as Pearl Aday and the lovely lads from Family Force 5.



During this summers festival Friday night will see the debut UK performance of The Big 4 with headliners Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax performing together for the first time ever in the UK. This rock god line up continues with Biffy Clyro on Saturday and Slipknot closing the festival on Sunday. As well as these metal legends there will also be performances Limp Bizkit, The Mars Volta, Motorhead and Architects.

Since its inception, Sonisphere has proved that it is more than just your average Rock Festival, putting Abba tribute act Bjorn Again alongside the top names in rock and metal in its first year and delivering a hugely successful comedy line up boasting the likes of Tim Minchin (who has since gone on to become a household name) in its second. This diversity has meant that the festival goers stand shoulder to shoulder despite fashion and musical differences and makes a great mix pot for festival style!

This year we will see comedy genius Bill Bailey perform on the Sunday evening supported throughout the weekend by Jackass star Steve-O, Andrew Oneill and hosted by Jarred Christmas.

After all the live shows finish the real party begins with incredible DJ acts from all over the country whipping up a dance party frenzy until the early hours including : A1 Bassline, Tek-One, Alfie and Innerpartysystem.

Here’s a peak at style spotted last summer…

Name: Helen
Menswear Buyer

Verdict: Helen uses her fashion knowledge to create a cute retro outfit. The polka dot dress is so lighthearted and mixed stylishly with cute accessories such as the camera pendant, vintage style belt, over sized sunnies and scarf head band. Helen was a FashionCapital regular as a student – that must be where she gets her style!

Name: Eleanor
Works for Universal Records

Verdict: Eleanor mixes rock chick with chic vintage style. She has combined a vintage style studded leather jacket with layers of cute gold necklaces, rockabilly leopard print shorts and battered lace up ankle boots. I love the outfit – obviously it helps that Eleanor is a stunner!







Keep your eyes peeled for band interviews and style spotted!
