Slipknot Postpone “Knotfest At Sea” Cruise

Slipknot have postponed their inaugural “Knotfest At Sea” cruise. The band commented:

“We previously shared that Knotfest at Sea would be postponed from August 2020 to August 2021. Due to unforeseen scheduling factors since then, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Knotfest at Sea for the foreseeable future. We greatly appreciate the patience and understanding of the Knotfest at Sea community, this decision was not made easily. All currently booked guests will receive a full refund. While there are no immediate plans for Knotfest at Sea we do hope to get together again in the future.
