Knotfest, the destination festival brand curated by Slipknot, is continuing its ever-expanding global domination with the announcement of its next location – Knotfest Australia in 2023.

The music and counterculture experience created by the multi-platinum sonic phenomenon Slipknot, will hit the East coast of Australia starting on Friday, March 24th at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, before making its way to Sydney on Saturday, March 25 at Centennial Park and wrapping up in Brisbane on Sunday, March 26th at RNA Showgrounds.

Headlined by Slipknot, the hugely stacked festival line-up includes Parkway Drive, Megadeth, Trivium, Northlane, Amon Amarth, In Flames, Knocked Loose, Spiritbox, Story Of The Year, Alpha Wolf, Void Of Vision, Bad Omens and Malevolence.

A staple at Knotfests all over the world, the Knotfest Museum will also be making its way to Australia for the very first time. The Knotfest Museum features a jaw-dropping collection of items from the band’s history and a fan-favourite attraction at the other Knotfests around the globe. Tickets are strictly limited in each city.

Early bird pre-sale tickets are on sale at 9am local time on Thursday 3 November and general public tickets go on sale at 9am local time on Monday 7 November.

Knotfest is Slipknot’s own self-curated, destination festival brand, currently held in eight international locations; the US, Japan, Mexico, Finland, Germany, Colombia, Chile and Brazil. Designed as an immersive, unforgettable, ‘dark carnival experience’, the event invites you into Slipknot’s apocalyptic underworld where stunning visuals, fire breathers and nightmarish creatures on stilts set the stage for an intoxicating and memorable weekend of live music.

Slipknot’s latest album, The End, So Far landed yet another No.1 Official Album Chart position in Australia, their fourth straight #1 in a row, as the album racked up a string of global chart accolades, including No. 1 Album positions in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Mexico and Top 10 in Japan, Finland, Sweden, Canada, USA, New Zealand, Portugal, Ireland, Belgium, Austria, France and the Netherlands.
