Ticketmaster have let slip Slipknot‘s much-teased ‘big announcement': the band are jumping on the ‘create your own festival’ bandwagon.
According to LoudWire, the band are headlining their own festival – Knotfest – at the Mid America Motorplex in their home state of Iowa on August 17. Joining them on the bill are heavy-hitting buddies Deftones, Lamb of God, Serj Tankian, Dethklok, The Urge, and Prong.
Tickets for the day-long festival will go on sale this Friday, June 8 – and will cost US $35. Yep, that’s right, $35 each, which is an absolute steal of a price for a lineup of this calibre.
In their teaser tweet for the ‘big announcement’, Slipknot included an image of a circus tent, which could possibly be the stage setup for KnotFest.

Singer Corey Taylor has also mentioned that the band are working on demos for a new record…so, in summary, the band are pretty damn busy at the moment!
