Knotfest 2012FIRST EVER KNOTFEST ANNOUNCED!

Knotfest 2012 posterStep into an apocalyptic underworld where firebreathers, nightmarish creatures on stilts, fire and percussive light, and stunning visuals set the stage for an intoxicating and unforgettably sinister concert experience. The first-ever KNOTFEST – an extraordinary two-date metal and hard rock festival–will feature performances from SLIPKNOT, DEFTONES, LAMB OF GOD, DETHKLOK, SERJ TANKIAN, CANNIBAL CORPSE, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, PRONG, GOJIRA and more. KNOTFEST will debut on Friday 17th  August in Iowa before moving on to Minneapolis/Saint Paul, MN at Somerset Amphitheater on 18th August.

KNOTFEST is a chance for us to bring the sensory-overload of a wild European carnival fest to the heart of America,” explains Slipknot’s M. Shawn Crahan (Clown). “We’re thrilled to delve deep into our catalogue and play a long set for fans. This festival is meant to be touched, felt, smelled and experienced by everyone on top of seeing an amazing day of rock and metal.”

Featuring two heavy-hitting stages of hard music, KNOTFEST will create an intoxicating spectacle, as fans descend into a decadent apocalyptic underworld featuring circus big-top tents, pillars of fire, and amusement park rides–including the legendary Ring of Fire carnival ride (Saturday only) – while masked performers, firebreathers and nightmarish stilt-walkers roam the festival grounds. Interactive graffiti walls and a drum circle made of junkyard cars will entertain fans and artists alike in the immersive, dark apocalyptic atmosphere. Upon entering the gates, sinister surprises including a Slipknot museum and powerful, vibrant art!
