Slipknot Get Judas Priest & Korn to Play Knotfest


When Slipknot isn’t busy freaking out senior citizens or threatening to destroy selfie stick users, the knotfest2015posterbandsband puts together its annual Knotfest music festival. Happening at the San Manuel Amphitheatre and festival grounds in San Bernardino, California from October 24-25, the event will see performances from the likes of Judas Priest, Korn and, of course, Slipknot.

Also featured will be Bring Me the Horizon, Mastodon, Clutch, Corrosion of Conformity, Cannibal Corpse, Trivium, GWAR, Suicidal Tendencies, All That Remains, Ghostface Killah and more. In all, more than 50 artists are set to perform.

Knotfest will be spread across five stages and have a Slipknot museum, carnival rides, an assortment of food trucks, as well as a special pre-party on October 23 for those who purchase VIP or camping passes. Early bird tickets are on sale as of today, starting at $45.

Ahead of last year’s Knotfest, Slipknot ran into some trouble after authorities in California poo-pooed the idea of camel dung being burned throughout the festival.
