Slipknot, Rob Zombie, Papa Roach, Etc. Set For Knotfest Meets Hellfest

Slipknot’s Knotfest will be teaming up with Hellfest for a “Knotfest Meets Hellfest” mini-festival in Clisson, France. The event will take place on June 20, one day before Hellfest Open Air officially kicks off. The following bands will perform: Slipknot, Rob Zombie, Papa Roach, Ministry, Sick Of It All, Sabaton, Amon Amarth, Powerwolf, Behemoth, and Amaranthe. Slipknot commented:

“As you know, owners of three-day passes are more likely to come on Thursday in Clisson. Delighted by these 10 exceptional names, Hellfest has agreed to lend its main stages to allow fans to enjoy another mini-festival. Best of all, we hope that this bonus initiative will make you happy and that you will keep enough energy to follow the three days of Hellfest. All hope is not gone. See you in Hell!”

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Discusses The Possibility Of Expanding Knotfest

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.”

Knotfest Pop-Up Store To Launch In Los Angeles, CA Next Week

A Knotfest pop-up store will be opening at The Palladium in Los Angeles, CA on October 30. The store will feature merch, discounted tickets, and more, with members of Slipknot expected to make an appearance. This year’s Ozzfest Meets Knotfest will be held in San Bernardino, CA on November 4-5. Slipknot will not be performing.

Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, Prophets Of Rage, Marilyn Manson, Etc. Set For 2017 Ozzfest Meets Knotfest

The lineup has been revealed for the 2017 Ozzfest Meets Knotfest. The event will take place at the Glen Helen Amphitheater & Festival Grounds on November 4-5, with Ozzfest set for day one and Knotfest set for day two.

Sharon Osbourne said the following:

“’Ozzfest Meets Knotfest‘ is coming back for another round. Last year we had over 75,000 people attend and we have another great lineup this year with Ozzy’s first solo show in L.A. in more than six years. This is not just another show…it’s ‘Ozzfest Meets Knotfest‘! And this year’s event means the world to me as we’ll be amongst friends like Prophets of Rage, Rob Zombie, Deftones, Marilyn Manson and Stone Sour…it’s going to be another amazing weekend.”

Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) added:

“‘Knotfest‘ was never supposed to be exclusively about Slipknot. It was always about the things that fueled the spirit of Slipknot: music, art, passion, insanity, and the tribes that give it power. So it would make sense for Knotfest to carry on these ideas, even without Slipknot.

Because these things are the gasoline of creativity, and there’s plenty to go around, with plenty of great bands, acts and things to see. Teaming up again with Ozzfest means another weekend of the biggest, baddest, loudest and best. I hope you all will join us; it’s going to be (sic).”

Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan also commented:

“It’s that incredible time again where Ozzfest and Knotfest meet up to bring all music fans together for two days of Rock and Roll. Let’s not forget the beautiful culture we are involved in and the history that is being written. Join the true passion of our concepts. I’ll see you there. Stay (sic).”
