Slipknot Won’t Perform at This Year’s Knotfest
Just woke up and read this on Lambgoat:
“Slipknot will not perform at 2017 installment Knotfest, the festival they launched in 2012. This year’s Knotfest events will take place in Mexico in October, in addition to a U.S. date that will once again be a pairing with Ozzfest. That date has yet to be announced.”
Which is… interesting. It will make Knotfest 2017 the first time the band has relied solely on their brand, not their actual presence, to draw fans to the event. It also means they’ll need a headliner with at least as much drawing power as they have, which, you’re probably aware, is a fairly short list these days.
I’ll be curious to see how this works out. More details we get ’em.
