Slipknot - which is currently wrapping up work on a new album - is set to return to the U.S. with the Knotfest, a three-day metal and heavy music destination festival to be held October 24th - 26th at San Manuel Amphitheater & Campgrounds in San Bernardino, CA.

The Knotfest 2014, powered by Rockstar Energy Drink, will feature a Slipknot-curated lineup of over 60 bands performing on five stages on Saturday and Sunday, as well as a Friday night VIP pre-party bash, band performances, and other activities for those that purchase VIP or camping packages.

The weekend will feature performances from Slipknot, Danzig, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Anthrax, Killswitch Engage, Tech N9ne, Of Mice & Men, Black Label Society, Testament, Hatebreed, Atreyu, In This Moment, Carcass and many more. A list of artists performing each day is available now at this location.

Slipknot will close the Main Stage both Saturday and Sunday, with unique sets each night, featuring brand new music and an entirely new stage set and experience. In addition, all ticket purchasers will receive a digital copy of Slipknot’s forthcoming album, to be delivered on its release date.

“Knotfest is a chance for Slipknot to bring the sensory-overload of a wild European festival--and now we're coming for you, California,” says Slipknot’s M. Shawn Crahan (Clown). "Playing two different sets over two nights at one location is a new experience in the history of this band. This year’s Knotfests in the U.S. and Japan are going to be on another level."

Probably the same reason soulfly and sevendust played icp's fest. Broaden their fan base. But it is weird.
