During an appearance on Jamey Jasta’s (Hatebreed) The Jasta Show, Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) was asked about the possibility of expanding Knotfest to a 20-30 date tour. He responded by saying “it’s definitely something [they’re] thinking about.”
Taylor said the following:
“It’s definitely something we’re thinking about and it’s one of the reasons why we built it the way we have. For us it was about the foundation of the brand itself. It was making sure that this was something that we could continue to build up. You don’t want to go from zero to a million.
So, it’s something that we’re definitely thinking about—certain spots in America—making ‘Knotfest‘ dates. And, this is important, we’re not afraid to take it away for a year and then bring it back.
That’s what people don’t understand. It’s not completely gone, ’cause we’re doing the one in Colombia. But, it doesn’t have to be a yearly thing.
Do it one country one year, do it in a couple other countries the next year. It doesn’t have to be something like that so you’re constantly, constantly stabilizing your brand and making money and doing something cool… And you’re also creating supply and demand.”
