Slipknot Announce Knotfest 2024 and 25th Anniversary Tour


Slipknot have announced a 2024 North American tour that takes place this summer. The nu metal band is also returning to its hometown music festival Knotfest Iowa. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Slipknot’s self-titled album, and their festival set is billed as “a unique set drawing heavily from their 1999 debut.” See Slipknot’s full list of tour dates below.

“Every time I’ve walked onstage, it’s never been about how many people have been there because my culture, the maggots, always show up,” founding member Shawn “Clown” Crahan said in a statement. “But as we’ve grown as a band, we have had fewer and fewer of those intimate, personal moments, trading them for massive ones. So we’re gonna make it more personal on the anniversary.… Just get ready to have your face kicked in, because we just do what we do, spread that maggot culture—that disease. And you’ve been infected.”

Dubbed the Here Comes the Pain Tour, Slipknot begin their run in Noblesville, Indiana, on August 6 and perform in Baltimore, New York, Toronto, Austin, and more cities. While the North American leg ends at Knotfest Iowa in Des Moines on September 21, Slipknot have plenty more dates scheduled in Europe on through to the end of 2024. Opening select shows in North America are Knocked Loose, Orbit Culture, and Vended.
