Last month, it was confirmed that Slipknot would be bringing their Knotfest event to the UK for the first time later this year.

The “mind-altering collision of music, art and culture” will take place at The National Bowl in Milton Keynes on August 22, with Corey Taylor and co. playing a headline set on the day.

And although the full lineup has still to be revealed, today it’s been announced that tickets will go on sale from 10am this coming Thursday (January 16) through Live Nation.

Fans will also be able to gain access to a Live Nation pre-sale from 10am on Wednesday by signing up for "My Live Nation" on the website.

It’s also been revealed that Knotfest UK have teamed up with Big Green Coach to transport fans to the festival site. Coaches will leave from 41 cities across the UK, with a full list available here.

Slipknot are currently preparing to kick off their European and UK tour, which will get under way tomorrow (January 14) at Dublin’s 3Arena.

The shows have been lined up in support of Slipknot’s latest studio album We Are Not Your Kind.
