With the line-up at Sonisphere UK‘s comeback year stronger than ever, it’s no wonder social media has been on fire this weekend!
However, one particular band has caused even more of a stir than the rest. Can you guess who it is yet?
It’s that trio of Japanese teenagers – Babymetal.
Earlier on, they took to the stage at Knebworth to prove their metal (no pun intended) and to, hopefully, impress the hordes of fans who are eagerly awaiting tonight’s headliners, Iron maiden.
Here’s a few reactions from the world of Twitter:
Never thought I'd say this but Babymetal are probably the best band of the weekend so far! #Sonisphere

I’m gonna say after the ridiculous bass solo that baby metal are more legit than Maiden too. Ã¢â‚¬” ™ Aylott (@aylott) July 5, 2014
