Slipknot are launching their very own hard rock and heavy metal music festival that will take place naturally enough in America's heartland.
The first-ever Knotfest will feature Slipknot, Deftones, Lamb Of God, Dethklok, Serj Tankian, Cannibal Corpse, The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Urge, Prong, Gojira and more.
Knotfest will debut on Friday, August 17 in Council Bluffs, IA at Mid America Motorplex and Saturday, August 18 in Somerset, WI/Minneapolis, MN at Somerset Amphitheater.
"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."
