Sonisphere Festival planning 2013 return

By
Sonisphere Festival will return in 2013.

The rock event - which was cancelled earlier in 2012 due to "a very challenging year" - is hoping to unveil the new lineup earlier than they did in 2012.

"We're working on a bill now, hopefully to announce before Christmas," Stuart Galbraith, CEO of Kilimanjaro Live told BBC Newsbeat. "Cancelling it last year was a hiccup."

Galbraith went on to add that organisers spent too long assembling the bill for 2012, giving them a shorter period to sell tickets.

Queen and Adam Lambert were due to headline the 2012 event, with further performances from Evanescence, Marilyn Manson and The Blackout.

Sonisphere tours throughout Europe during the summer and has already confirmed plans to visit France and Italy in 2013.
