New Knebworth festival rumoured for 2018 with The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones could headline a new festival being lined up for Knebworth House in summer 2018. Promoters AEG Presents, who currently organise British Summer Time in Hyde Park, are producing The Rolling Stones tour of Germany which began on Saturday, and Music Week understands that they will organise a multi-day event at Knebworth next summer.

This would be the first concert at the legendary venue since Sonisphere Festival ceased to run, over three years ago. A tweet from The Rolling Stones back in May confirmed they intend to play in the UK during 2018.

“Sorry to our UK fans there are no UK dates on this run, due to lack of available venues because of sporting fixtures. Hope to be here in 2018″

The Rolling Stones have previously performed at Knebworth way back in 1976, together with Lynyrd Skynyrd.
