Slipknot, Pantera, and Godsmack have been announced as the headliners for Rock Fest 2023. The festival will take place between 13 and 15 July in Cadott, WI. Check out the daily line-ups below. Tickets are available here.

“We really focus on making each year better than the last,” said festival promoter Wade Asher. “Fans can look forward to 20 national acts performing at Rock Fest for the first time. And that is pretty tough to do when we’ve been doing this for 29 years. As always, we’re keeping busy in the offseason working to improve the fan experience in many ways, including both new and improved infrastructure for 2023. We can’t wait to do it all over again.”

In a recent interview with Upset magazine, Clown – one of Slipknot’s founding members – reflected on the band’s longevity, ““We’re still relevant. We’re still having fun, but I’m more dangerous now in a meditative state than I ever was flying off the rails,” he continues, hitting a stride. “We’re still here, after 25 years of touring the world, selling some albums, and nobody’s got shit on us.”

Clown added, “I’m trying to keep it real. I’m trying to make a real connection. I’m trying to get closer to the fans. I’m trying to give it all away.”

“We’re not scared. We’re not frightened to express all the colours. We’ve all let it out. When you can show others that you’re willing to cut yourself open and share, they’re compelled to do the same. We have an extreme trust with our culture. There’s this wonderful give-and-take relationship, and it’s beautiful. But for us, it’s just medication. All of the albums are medication.”
