Slipknot have announced the 2024 edition of their Knotfest Iowa festival, featuring their own traditional headlining set, along with Rammstein’s Till Lindemann, Knocked Loose, GWAR, Poison the Well, Hatebreed and more.

The one-day festival will take place on 21 September at Water Works Park in Slipknot’s hometown of Des Moines. Other acts on the bill include Vended (featuring the sons of Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Clown), along with Dying Wish, Zulu, Twin Temple, Holy Wars, Swollen Teeth, and Spine & Dose. Visit Slipknot’s official website for further information.

Various ticket pre-sales for premium and general subscribers as low as $99.50 begin as early as Tuesday (April 30th) at 10 a.m. CT via Ticketmaster, with general ticket sales starting Friday (May 3rd) at 10 a.m. CT. If the fest sells out, fans can also look for tickets via StubHub, where every purchase is 100% guaranteed through StubHub’s Fan Protect program.

At Knotfest Iowa, Slipknot will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of their self-titled album, wearing 1999-inspired red jumpsuits and masks and playing a number of songs from the classic LP.

In addition to the musical performances, Knotfest Iowa will include a Knotfest Museum featuring a “jaw-dropping collection of artifacts from the band’s history.”

Last week, before headlining the second edition of the Las Vegas festival Sick New World, Slipknot played a warmup gig at the tiny Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown, CA. In doing so, they debuted their new full-time drummer. He was of course wearing a mask, but it has been officially revealed that the band’s new sticksman is Eloy Casagrande, who left the long-running Brazilian band Sepultura last month. Casagrande announced his departure from Sepultura in an Instagram post, writing that “decisions needed to be made thinking about new cycles that will come.”

The drummer had been with Sepultura since 2011, three years before Jay Weinberg joined Slipknot, and the Brazilian band announced that they had replaced him with Grayson Nekrutman — who just spent the year beforehand playing in Suicidal Tendencies.
