Multi-platinum sonic phenomenon Slipknot have announced the band’s biggest Los Angeles headline performance yet, Knotfest Los Angeles.

Taking place at Banc of California Stadium on Friday November 5th, Knotfest Los Angeles will see Slipknot performing at this stadium for the first time, with a stacked line-up also including Bring Me The Horizon, Killswitch Engage, Fever 333, Code Orange and Vended, with a special guest appearance from Cherry Bombs.

Check out the trailer here:

Promising ‘A Mind-Altering Collision of Music, Art and Culture’, Knotfest Los Angeles ticket holders will be able to sample Slipknot’s award-winning small-batch Iowa whiskies at the No.9 Whiskey Bar, including a soon-to-be-announced surprise for fans. And for the beer drinkers, there’ll be a selection of metal-friendly and band-branded beers pouring at the Knotfest Beer Pit.

Knotfest Los Angeles, Knotfest Iowa, and the touring Knotfest Roadshow will all celebrate the 20th year of Slipknot’s iconic and groundbreaking #1 album, Iowa. Fans can expect a special capsule drop of commemorative Iowa-related merchandise, and music, video and other content from this pivotal era will roar to life as the tour and year progresses. This year’s Slipknot Museum, a staple at Knotfests the world over, will feature a jaw-dropping collection of items specifically from this (in)famous period in the band’s history. More details will follow in due course.

Tickets for Knotfest Los Angeles will be available on pre-sale to OT9 and Knotfest.com subscribers from 9am and 10am Pacific time respectively on July 27th, with a general on-sale from 10am Pacific on July 30th, over at KnotfestLosAngeles.com.

Tickets are also moving fast for the Knotfest Roadshow which sees Slipknot snaking their way across the USA with Killswitch Engage, Fever 333 and Code Orange in tow for the loudest, most visceral tour of the Summer.

In unfortunate news, due to the ongoing pandemic situation, the previously announced Latin American Knotfest events (Brazil, Colombia & Chile) have all been bumped from 2021 to 2022. Further information is available on the respective festival websites.

Official Poster for Knotfest Los Angeles

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
