POLLSTAR sent this in an e-mail today:

"Kilimanjaro chief Stuart Galbraith and K2 agency boss John Jackson are launching a new U.K. festival at Knebworth House in Hertfordshire, England, in August.
The Rolling Stones, Robbie Williams, Pink Floyd, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band, Genesis"

Colin, Jim, Alan, and any other HTW U.K. friends, enjoy!

Hello Michael

Well, IF it were true I would probably have to re-mortgage my house to buy a ticket for that line-up ... so IF it is true please don't tell the wife how I got the ticket

Stones, Pink Floyd, and ABB at same fest????? This would be a good excuse to visit Merry Old England (not that I need an excuse - it's already on my to-do list ).

That sounds awesome, but I doubt it is legit. Pink Floyd will never be together again after the unfortunate loss of Rick Wright. But, stranger things have happened. Too far away for me though. Although I have wanted to return to Europe for a long time.

You need to read the whole text of the announcement:

Kilimanjaro chief Stuart Galbraith and K2 agency boss John Jackson are launching a new U.K. festival at Knebworth House in Hertfordshire, England, in August.

The two-day, 50,000-capacity event is called “Sonisphere” and will feature Metallica and Linkin Park. Promoter Galbraith and agent Jackson are believed to be close to naming more acts.

It will be the first camping rock festival the well-known Hertfordshire park has staged. Since starting with The Allman Brothers Band in 1994, it has hosted major open-air rock and pop concerts including Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Genesis.

PS Colin, your secret is safe with us... unless you are a closet Metallica fan...

The quoted part in my post is from the e-mail notification I received and is all I had to go on, Alan. Oh, well...
