Slipknot have announced the first ever Knotfest Brazil which will take place at Sambódromo do Anhembi in São Paulo, on December 19th 2021.

Launched in 2012, the festival established itself in the United States and has consistently expanded its offerings across the globe, with events in Japan, Mexico, Colombia and France. Tickets will be available from 10am Brasilia Standard Time on Thursday, November 26th at Eventim.com.br

Knotfest Brazil is the realization of a partnership between 30 Entertainment and 5B Artists+Media. In addition to Slipknot headlining the inaugural Knotfest Brazil, the line-up will also feature nine other bands and 12 hours of music. The event will feature two stages, the KNOTFEST Museum, Food Park, and Merchandise Store, in addition to an amusement area for fans to enjoy on the day. VIP experience packages* will also be available for sale, with access to premium areas and exclusive merchandise. More information about these packages will be available on the Eventim website (*subject to availability).

Slipknot will continue to tour around We are Not Your Kind, their sixth studio album that debuted at # 1 on the Billboard 200 – the band’s third consecutive album to top Billboard’s most important music chart. The album also made a global impact with # 1 debuts not only in the United States, but also the United Kingdom, Mexico, Australia, Canada, Japan, Ireland, Belgium, Portugal and Finland, as well as Top 5 in Germany, France, Norway, Italy, Austria , Sweden, Switzerland, Holland, Poland, Spain and New Zealand.

Speaking to Rolling Stone Magazine, Slipknot’s creative visionary Shawn “Clown” Crahan defined Knotfest as “a dark carnival experience. It’s not just the shows, but the environment created around it. It’s all about having fun. A day dedicated to our mentality, our ideas, to the people we want to be with. I’m talking about smells, sights, hearing, your body, everything will be overloaded with stimulation.”

Twenty one years ago, nine inspired musicians from Des Moines, Iowa, shattered the scope of what was possible in rock music. From the moment Slipknot emerged in 1999 with their self-titled debut, it was clear they were like nothing the world had seen before. Where a similarly creative act may have burned out or lost their relevance chasing mainstream acceptance, Slipknot has only proven that an enduring commitment to constant evolution, their craft, and their fans can allow a rock band to not only continue – but flourish and push the envelope on what defines heavy metal and rock music in general. With We are Not Your Kind, Slipknot’s first new album in five years, the band deliver when they are needed most. Meanwhile, Slipknot’s annual Knotfest festival has evolved into the biggest hard rock and metal festival in the world, expanding to four continents. Over 550,000 fans have attended these massive festivals, which are as cultural as they are music-based, mixing heavy rock with hip hop, world music, visual art, experiential installations, and much more. Recorded music and live performances aside, Slipknot has always permeated mainstream culture in ways that defy expectations. Recently, Slipknot partnered with Amazon Studios’ advertising campaign for their smash hit series, “The Boys”, and have launched Slipknot No. 9 Whiskey in a partnership with Cedar Ridge Distillery (American Distilling Institute’s “2017 Distiller of the Year”)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I’m sad to keep sharing the bad news here at the Metal Media Command HQ about pretty much everything, you cannot disagree that 2020 has been a bear for this kind of stuff for sure. Now based on the logistics of this particular cruise we were not planning on attending but it sure sounded interesting because we do love a good time here at PiercingMetal.com – I’ve not been on any of the music cruises yet despite my interest in several of them. Sure I’ve been on boats plenty of times over the years but I hardly think that the Staten Island Ferry and the Circle Line count as much when it comes to entertainment. That being said I wonder what the vox populi has to say about this latest bit of news. Feel free to chime in with your topical notions down in the space below. See you next time.
