[Rock Festivals-Switzerland] inkl.Sonisphere 2011: Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, etc.

http://sz.sonispherefestivals.com/

Anyone been in the past or planning to go? It's going to be June 24, 2011 in Basel.

Bands include: Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Alice Cooper, Bring Me the Horizon, In Flames, Architects, Skindred, and Hatebreed.

I mostly want to go to see Iron Maiden, but wouldn't mind seeing some of the others. Of course it will depend on how beastly the ticket price is!

Still not sure if I should go to the UK Sonisphere to see the big 4 again, it was great last year (apart from all the mud, obviously).
Deffo going to Greenfield, Foo Fighters, Volbeat and Flogging Molly - get in!

Re: Sonisphere 2011: Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, etc.

There is a forum for the metal/rock venue near Basel called Z-7 at http://www.z-7.ch/Z7Forum/

They discuss most intensively gigs at Z-7, but also tend to mention festivals, concerts etc. around Switzerland, particularly related to all forms of the world's most goodest musical style... metal.

If you can read German, you can follow the discussions. If you can't look for the forum section "Konzerte anderswo" - http://www.z-7.ch/Z7Forum/viewforum....60386ea5b4b45c - and you can see the band names and locations there.

There might be a better site for Zurich locals, but not being one myself, I don't know.

On another note, if you're into less commercial stuff than Sonisphere, Basel will host a 4-day festival at the end of May at Z-7. I went in 2009 and it was good. 2011 lineup looks decent to date and I'll be there with a couple of beer-bingeing Aussies. http://www.ch.metalfest.eu/bands.html

Re: Sonisphere 2011: Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, etc.

or you can check ticketcorner.ch, then go on to festivals/openairs or citys and then go to music sytle(alternative for example).
Another open air festival is near belfort/france(around 1,5 hours by train from basel ), there is a 3 day festival from the 1st to the 3rd of july 2011(last year http://festival.eurockeennes.fr/inde...id=300&lang=de
line up and a few more like Janelle Monae)
This festival is at a lake near belfort(train service between belfort and the festival during the whole day for free when you got a ticket for it )

Re: [Rock Festivals-Switzerland] inkl.Sonisphere 2011: Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, etc

Gah all these sound great...I'm really leaning towards going to Greenfield but IRON MAIDEN is making this a very tough decision. If anyone's looking for anyone to go, I'm pretty new to Zurich and want to buy a ticket but really don't want to go alone!

Re: [Rock Festivals-Switzerland] inkl.Sonisphere 2011: Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, etc

The line up for this years Summer Days Festival has just been announced:

The highlights are:

Eric Burdon and The Animals
Roger Hodgson & Band (Supertramp)
Manfred Manns Earthband
Texas
Jimmy Cliff

St. Gallen Tagblatt

Nothing outstanding but it could be worth a visit if you are in the area. I had a great time there last year, despite the wet weather. The great time was due to the company, and the alcohol.

Sonisphere Basel

I just bought my ticket for the Friday of the Sonisphere Festival leg in Basel (24 June).
I am wondering if there are any other people on here that are going and maybe would like to meet up in the arena for a beer and get-to-know you while watching some seriously cool bands.
