If you’ve watched movies and TV shows about the apocalypse, you’ve probably thought two things: that kinda looks fun and you wouldn’t last a day. Deep down in your black and rotting heart, you know running around decaying and burning cities free to indulge in your darkest, most base desires sounds awesome.
BUT… you also know chances are more likely your leg will end up on someone’s looted Foreman’s grill, the main course for a roving band of cannibals. Yup… stick a fork in you; you’re done. The way we see it… the apocalypse would be a fun place to visit, not live.
Well, here’s your chance! Slipknot invites you to spend “13 Hours of the Apocalypse” at Knotfest, its annual heavy music festival. The event takes place Oct. 24 and 25 at the San Manuel Amphitheater and festival grounds in San Bernardino, CA.
Knotfest features 50 bands on five stages. Performers include metal gods Judas Priest and heavy-hitters Korn, Suicidal Tendencies, Body Count, Mastodon, Corrosion of Conformity, Trivium, Cannibal Corpse, The Sword, GWAR, Helmet and many more. Slipknot headline both nights with different sets.
Knotfest also includes carnival rides and attractions, including the Slipknot Museum, Massive Fire Hell Zone, Ring of Fire, Fighting Thunderdome, zipline, sideshow freak show and more. For complete festival details, visit the Knotfest website.
