Knotfest, the ultimate destination for music and counterculture experiences, is set to return to Australia this month.

After a sold-out debut in 2023, Knotfest promises to once again shake the East coast with an explosive lineup of heavyweights, headlined by none other than Pantera and Disturbed.

Aside from the scorching lineup, the Knotfest Australia experience is set to elevate with the revamped Knotfest Museum. Offering a visceral journey through Slipknot’s 25-year career, the museum showcases never-before-seen items in Australia. From playable instruments used by the band to iconic wardrobe pieces, the museum promises an immersive dive into Slipknot’s rich history.

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.

Tickets are available for purchase now at KNOTFEST Australia.
