Slipknot have revealed they are bringing Knotfest to the UK in 2020.

The news comes just weeks after the band confirmed the initial details of Knotfest At Sea, with the UK date taking place at The National Bowl in Milton Keynes on August 22.

Slipknot will play a headline set, while a list of other artists taking part will be revealed early next year along with on-site activities for the event, which is billed as “a mind-altering collision of music, art and culture."

It’ll be the Iowa outfit’s first show at the venue since their appearance there in 2001 when they were part of Ozzfest.

Members of Slipknot’s official Outside The 9 fan club will have a first access pre-sale from 10am GMT on December 19.

The cruise and UK festival are further expansions of Knotfest, with the Knotfest Roadshow travelling across North America back in the summer.

Speaking in June this year, Slipknot’s manager Cory Brennan of 5B Management hinted that the festival could tour across Europe, as demand was growing ahead of the release of Slipknot’s latest album We Are Not Your Kind.

Slipknot have now wrapped up their 2019 plans, but will return to the UK and Europe in early 2020.

Slipknot: We Are Not Your Kind
Slipknot's new album We Are Not Your Kind was released through Roadrunner Records earlier this year. The follow-up to .5: The Gray Chapter features the lead single Unsainted.View Deal
