The headliners for Sonisphere France 2012 have just been announced.  The festival, taking place July 7-8 at Snowhall Park in Amnéville, France, will feature Faith No More,  Evanescence, Marilyn Manson, Wolfmother, Machine Head, and Soulfly.


For those who aren’t in the know, Sonisphere is a unique touring festival started up in 2009 that treks across Europe.  The festival showcases heavy metal and hard rock bands from all over the world.

Faith No More is a surprising headliner to see on the Sonisphere France 2012, since many thought their reunion days were done.  More announcements will be coming shortly in regard to the rest of the lineup, which is sure to highlight French bands as well as other groups from around the globe.

Tickets have yet to be priced, but that will be made clear when they go on sale Wednesday, February 22.  Festival-goers will be pleased to hear that camping and parking is free.  Head over to the Sonisphere website for details on their other upcoming festivals in Poland, Spain, Switzerland, and Finland.
