Knotfest confirms its return to Australia in March 2024

For those who’ve been waiting, the moment is finally here with the Knotfest Australia lineup. Pantera, the heavy groove behemoths from the late ’80s and early ’90s, are making their first appearance down under since 1996. It’s a bucket list moment for fans, marking a triumphant return to the Australian stage. Joining them is Chicago’s hard rockers, Disturbed, making their way to Australia for the first time in eight years, armed with their latest album, Divisive.

The festival isn’t just about the headliners – the lineup is a sonic assault featuring heavy metal merchants LAMB OF GOD, the powerhouse HALESTORM, Mongolian rockers THE HU, English rockers ASKING ALEXANDRIA, Florida’s explosive WAGE WAR, and many more. Each act promises to bring their unique brand of intensity to the KNOTFEST stages.

If you need a refresher, 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.
