Concert Update: Knotfest Lineup Change

Due to the current situation with Lamb of God's Randy Blythe still being denied bail and still incarcerated, Lamb of God and Dethklok have cancelled their tour and will not be at Knotfest. So far, one replacement has been announced as Machine Head was added to the lineup and another one should be added in the next day or two.

The lineup is still completely awesome. On Saturday August 18th, 2012, Slipknot will be joined by Deftones, Serj Tankian, Cannibal Corpse and many more in Somerset, WI at the Somerset Amphitheater. Tickets are only $45 and still available!


  1. I really hope it's another hardcore band. Losing LOG and DK puts me at a bit of an upset that could only be gratified with the presence of a band like Suicide Silence or Job for a Cowboy. Machine head is alright but no comparison in the extreme metal I'm really going to knotfest for.

  2. I completely agree with you on that. We'll see what they announce and when they let us know, I'll post an update.
