Rock around the clock in Prague
Heavy metal fans might like to get their groove on in the Czech Republic later this month and quickly book a hostel in Prague to ensure they have somewhere to stay when the Sonisphere festival rolls into the city.

This mode of accommodation will be far more comfortable than roughing it in a tent for the day that the explosion of music is on and if you're into your hard rock then Milovice Airport is the place to be on June 19th.

And there's an unusual twist to the event as it's a festival which is going on tour around the world, with Spain and England also set to benefit from the musical exploits of top bands.

But not all the acts will be the same at each venue. Metallica are one band who will be headlining at the Czech event - but not the Spanish one - and they will be joined by some famous faces in the rock world. Their last album - Death Magnetic – was a great heavy metal mix if ever there was one.

Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth are high up on the bill, which will also see Alice in Chains and Stone Stour make an appearance.

However you'll not be able to take in the glitz and glamour of the Czech capital city if you're over in Madrid to watch the action. So, why not make a whole week of it in Prague? There's plenty to explore in the beautiful city, including the historic Charles Bridge, which is well worth walking over.

And you will find plenty of things to take photos of, such as the Astronomical Clock, which is placed on the wall of the old town city hall and seems to be very popular every time I've visited the glorious building.
