Corey Taylor recently chatted with Billboard, and confirmed that Slipknot will not be performing at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest or Knotfest Mexico this year. Despite this, Taylor will still be present at the festivals, performing with Stone Sour.
Taylor said the following:
“I think in a lot of ways your festival has to live past you, or it’s not gonna live at all. If it has to live and breathe on your presence, then it’s not a festival, and it’s not for anybody else but you. And for us, it’s always been more about the art and the music and everybody… That’s why we put so much work into it to begin with, is to really make sure that it was stable and it was strong and the foundation was there.”
Ozzfest Meets Knotfest will be announced on July 10, while Knotfest Mexico is set to take place at the Foro Pegaso in Toluca, Mexico on October 28
