I just about fell to the floor when I read at BLABBERMOUTH.NET what Slipknot has in store for their fans for the first ever 'Knotfest.'

If you can picture this : firebreathers, creatures on stilts, fire and percussive light, and killer visuals will jsut start this thing off followed by 2 days of THE BEST LINEUP I have ever seen for a festival show.

Slipknot, Deftones, Lamb Of God, Dethklok, Serj Tankian, Cannibal Corpse, The Dillinger Escape Plan, the Urge, Prong, and Gojira. This 2 day event will absolutelybe one of the greatest shows to see ever I believe.
