Slipknot have announced the lineup and other details about the 2014 Knotfest. The metal festival will take place October 24 – 26 in San Bernardino, Calif. at the San Manuel Amphitheater & Campgrounds.
While Slipknot will headline the event, other acts scheduled to appear are Danzig, Five Finger Death Punch, Black Label Society, the newly reunited Atreyu, and In This Moment among others. Tickets along with camping packages go on sale today, while VIP packages will be available starting Wednesday, July 9. The complete line up can be found below.
Knotfest was started by Slipknot in 2012 to showcase metal acts. The event also includes circus acts and amusement park rides similar to Chicago's own Riot Fest. Meanwhile, frontman Corey Taylor told Loudwire the new Slipknot album is nearly done. As an added bonus fans who buy tickets for Knotfest will receive a free digital copy of the LP when it's finally released.
This will be the first studio album without bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010 from an accidental overdose of morphine and fentanyl, and drummer Joey Jordison, who departed the band last year. This will also be Slipknot's first release since 2008's All Hope is Gone.
