Knotfest is Coming to Finland
Knotfest continues to expand its global footprint, announcing a festival set for next August in Turku, Finland (rescheduled from 2021).
Nightwish, Bring Me The Horizon and Arch Enemy will appear underneath Slipknot, along with the lesser-known bands Stam1na and Blind Channel.
Slipknot have held individual Knotfest events in Japan, Mexico, the U.K. and France, in addition to the traveling tour of the same name in the U.S., which itself includes larger festival dates in Iowa and Los Angeles. The Knotfest at Sea boat cruise was claimed by the pandemic (rescheduled from 2020 to 2021, then dropped entirely), but Knotfest-on-land events are scheduled in Brazil and Chile for later this year.
Tickets for all upcoming Knotfests are available here.
Slipknot have been working on a new album this year and are eyeing late 2021 or early 2022 for a release. Corey Taylor recently unveiled his new mask for that cycle. They will go on a massive North American tour with Killswitch Engage, Fever 333 and Code Orange starting in September:
