FACTORY311 @ Sonisphere France

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Sonisphere Festival returns again this year, hosting the the rebellious lineup of Metallica, Slayer, Megadeath and Anthrax who are grouped together as ‘The Big 4’. Last year The Big 4 kicked up a storm at several Sonisphere Festivals, where their performance was hailed as “the most significant event in the history of metal” at the time. Alongside the Big 4 are Mass Hysteria, Bring me the Horizon, Limp Bizkit and Slipknot who will be closing the festival.

Watch out for ‘The Life of a Rockstar Photographer’ as our Creative Director Nicholas Hardy documents Eric Canto shooting at Sonisphere this Summer for the likes of  Slipknot, Metallica and the legends that are Mass Hysteria themselves. 

Eric Canto is FACTORY311‘s live music photographer who started off his career on stage as a musician, before making his move behind the lens into live music photography. Canto has developed a distinct style that has remained consistent throughout his career, which you can see in the recent hardcore collaboration with Mass Hysteria in all it’s heavy metal glory in their exclusive tour publication ‘Mass Hysteria’.

With Sonisphere around the corner, here at FACTORY311 we advise you don your classic Metallica tee and moshing attiree because it’s going to be a big one! \m/
