Masked metal band Slipknot will be headlining their very own Knotfest, a three day heavy music festival that will also see such acts as Danzig, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Killswitch Engage, Anthrax, and many, many more. The event will take place October 24th through the 26th in San Bernardino, CA at the San Manuel Ampthitheater & Campgrounds.
Slipknot will be closing the festival on the second and third nights, each having their own unique set. Every ticket purchase will also receive a digital download of the band’s new album, which doesn’t yet have a release date.
Slipknot’s Shawn M. “Clown” Crahan states:
Knotfest is a chance for Slipknot to bring the sensory-overload of a wild European festival–and now we’re coming for you, California. Playing two different sets over two nights at one location is a new experience in the history of this band. This year’s Knotfests in the U.S. and Japan are going to be on another level.
Directly from the press release:
In addition to performances from more than 60 of the heaviest bands on the planet, attendees will descend into an apocalyptic underworld featuring over 20 festival attractions including a Slipknot Museum (curated by the band), carnival rides, a zip line across the festival grounds, drum circles, pillars of fire, freaks, fire-breathers, stilt-walkers, and so much more.
