Slipknot has announced their very own festival, Knotfest. The two-date festival will take place on August 17 and 18, the first in their native Iowa and the second in Somerset, Wisconsin.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Shawn Crahan of the band commented that the festival is "all about having fun and bringing something to the world of rock and roll, bringing it to the standard it used to be. It's time for us to really engulf this idea known as Knotfest where we're in control, we make a day devoted to our mindset, our ideas, the people that we want to play with, the people that we think our fans want to be around."
The group will be joined on the bill by the Deftones, System of a Down's Serj Tankian and Lamb of God, Cannibal Corpse, the Dillinger Escape Plan, the Urge, Prong, Gojira, among others.
Along with two stages of music, the festival will feature circus big-top tents, pillars of fire, and amusement rides, as well as interactive graffiti walls, a drum circle made of abandoned junkyard cars, a Slipknot museum, and other surprises. Tickets for the festival go on sale Friday (June 8) at 10:00 am EDT.
