Knotfest has expanded into five countries – Japan, Mexico, Colombia, France, and the UK – since it began seven years ago.

In August 2019, Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan told NME about the prospect of bringing the event to the UK in the future.

“It definitely will happen but it has to be the right thing,” he said. “Right now we do a lot of festivals with a lot of great people and you’ve got to find a time and a zone and it’s got to be right.

“We don’t like to go and mess things up; it’s not about that. It’s about being righteous and pure and it being what it is.”

As well as the UK leg, Knotfest also sets sail with a new cruise for next summer.

Taking place in August, ‘Knotfest At Sea’ will depart from Barcelona, Spain and will feature two onboard performances from the band.

Tomorrow (January 14), Slipknot will also kick off their arena tour of UK and Ireland with a performance at Dublin’s 3Arena.
