Slipknot Reveal Final Knotfest Performers and Set Times
Slipknot is putting the final scheduling touches on their inaugural Knotfest event, powered by Rockstar Energy Drink, and the Midwest may never be the same afterward.
The group has revealed the performance lineup and set times for both the Council Bluffs, Iowa and Minneapolis, Minn. dates on Aug. 17 and 18. For the Council Bluffs show, doors open at the Mid-American Motor Complex with Dirtfedd, Prong, The Urge, Serj Tankian, Machine Head, Deftones, Lamb of God, and Slipknot set to play.
The Minneapolis date takes place at the Somerset Amphitheatre, with doors opening at 1:30PM. Gojira begin the day, followed by sets from Prong, Dillinger Escape Plan, Cannibal Corpse, Serj Tankian, Machine Head, Deftones, Lamb of God, and Slipknot.
While not everyone can make it to the Midwest dates, Slipknot wants to make Knotfest an event that can be experienced everywhere, and as such they've partnered with Todocast and Event View Live to broadcast the Saturday (Aug. 18) show on demand. Visit the Event View Live website for purchase and reservation details. Those who purchase Knotfest will be able to watch it live as it happens, and for a full 30 days after the event.
