Reading 2010 tickets

Although the advance tickets sold out shortly after last year's festival, a further batch will be available in late March, which probably indicates a line-up announcement is due at that time. Strongly rumoured acts so far include: Blink 182, Green Day, My Chemical Romance, The Maccabees, Biffy Clyro, Cancer Bats and Freebass. Further info at the official website.

Sonisphere line-up

The UK Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth, which runs from Friday 3oth July to Sunday 1st August will see headlining appearances from iron maiden and Rammstein, while other bands announced so far are Motley Crue, Alice Cooper, Placebo, Slayer, Iggy & The Stooges, The Cult, Papa Roach, Anthrax, Fear Factory and Bring Me The Horizon. Henry Rollins will give a spoken-word performance.

Download Festival line-up

This year's Download Festival takes place at Donington Park on Friday 11th to Sunday 13th June. AC/DC headline on the Friday, with Them Crooked Vultures, Wolfmother, Bullet For My Valentine, Motorhead, Deftones, Stone Temple Pilots, Volbeat, and Megadeth also confirmed to appear. Tickets with weekend camping cost £170 (no doubt with a booking fee on top... and probably a car-parking charge, too...). The organisers have also banned flags on poles from the arena following a number of complaints last year. The capacity for this year's event will be 111,000, making Download the second-largest festival in the UK, after Glastonbury.
