Slipknot will headline the 2025 editions of the Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park festivals, it has been announced.

The sibling weekenders will be held during the same dates, June 6 to 8, at Nürburg and Nuremberg respectively in Germany.

Tickets to both events are now available to purchase.

The slots are the first 2025 tour dates that Slipknot have announced.

They will follow a stacked 2024 for the nu metal juggernauts, who are spending this year celebrating the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album.

The band played a handful of shows in May, including an intimate California performance that marked the live debut of new drummer Eloy Casagrande.

They will return to the road with a headlining North American run from August to October, followed by a short string of South American dates.

Slipknot will then head to Europe for some arena shows, with support coming from modern metal maestros Bleed From Within.

Percussionist and co-founder Shawn “Clown” Crahan has teased that Slipknot will also play some as-yet-unannounced intimate concerts this year, and that the Slipknot album will be performed in its entirety.

“Are you joking right now?” the musician told Kerrang! when asked if it will be played in full.

“You’re talking about the anniversary of one of the greatest metal albums to ever release in the thought process known as reality, and you think this 54-year-old man who just told you ‘I’m going out the way I came in’, you think for one moment that this album isn’t going to be played in its entirety in front of, like, a hundred people, 200 people, 300 people, 50,000 people.

“I’m not going to live forever, man. Neither is everybody else. Things are changing very quickly. I ain’t got no more time to fuck around.”
