Knotfest, the music and counterculture experience created by the multi-platinum sonic phenomenon and nine-piece force of nature, Slipknot, has today confirmed the return of Knotfest Iowa for 2021. The event will be the biggest heavy music festival to ever hit the mid-western state and will be held at National Balloon Classic Field in Indianola, IA, on Saturday, September 25th, with Slipknot headlining. The full line-up features Faith No More, Megadeth, Lamb Of God, $uicide Boy$, Gojira, Trivium, Tech N9ne, FEVER 333, Knocked Loose, Turnstile, Gatecreeper And Vended.
With Slipknot bringing their incendiary live experience home once more to their native Iowa, Clown tells us; “A home show is always insane, but a home “Knotfest” show will be on a whole other level. Prepare. See you soon for the new reality. Stay (sic).”
