Slipknot appeared at Wacken for the first time ever in 2022. They were originally scheduled to headline in 2020, but that was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the band finally made their Wacken debut, frontman Corey Taylor told the crowd: "I've been waiting my whole fucking life to say these words. Good evening Wacken! Do you have any idea how much it means to us to be headlining one of the greatest fucking heavy metal festivals in the God damn world?"

Slipknot's set from Wacken 2022 is as follows:

Wait and Bleed
All Out Life
Before I Forget
The Dying Song (Time to Sing)
Dead Memories
The Heretic Anthem
Spit It Out
People = Shit

Slipknot released their seventh album, The End, So Far, this year.

The band headline Knotfest Brazil on December 18, and have a number of tour dates lined up for 2023, including a headline slot at Download festival.
