Slipknot Announce Knotfest Iowa 2021
Presumably, this is the “massive” Slipknot news Corey Taylor teased back in February: the band has announced Knotfest Iowa 2021.
The event will take place on Saturday, September 25 at National Balloon Classic Field in Indianola, IA. In addition to Slipknot, the bill will include Faith No More, Megadeth, Lamb of God, $uicide Boy$, Gojira, Trivium, Tech N9ne, FEVER 333, Knocked Loose, Turnstile, Gatecreeper, and Vended.
Says Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan of the event:
“A home show is always insane, but a home ‘Knotfest’ show will be on a whole other level. Prepare. See you soon for the new reality. Stay (sic).”
Elsewhere in the same press release, the band confirms that they’ve hit the studio to work on new music. But really we knew that already. Apparently “The band will deliver updates soon.” So. Y’know. Stay tuned for that.
