KNOTFEST–powered by Rockstar Energy Drink hosted by Jose Mangin (SiriusXM) and Lou Brutus (hardDrive)–will be home to over 30 vendors selling a variety of lifestyle items to enhance the festival experience and beyond. In addition to various vendor promotions, KNOTFEST will offer multiple visual surprises, and will present the following onsite activities and attractions:

 

SLIPKNOT MUSEUM

A tented museum curated by the members of Slipknot themselves. Slipknot’s history on display to include priceless Slipknot artifacts such as masks, suits, art, previously used equipment and other memorabilia from the members themselves personal archives and home garages.

 

FIRE AREA/THUNDERDOME

There is nothing choreographed about the THUNDERDOME. Two fighters step in and fight until one taps out. Nightly fights throughout the festival.

Straight from the bowels of hell is the Fire Zone, displaying a pyromaniac’s wet dream, with fueled performances throughout the festival day and night.

 

COSTUMED PERFORMANCE ARTISTS

30+ costumed pagan performers roam around festival adorned as different creatures tapping into your nightmares. Included in these performers will be firewalkers, fire breathers and sword swallowers…

 

ZIPLINE

For the first time ever at an American festival, the Zipline will scream across the upper section of the festival area, allowing you to fly over fellow KNOTFEST fans below at high speeds. There will be a low cost per ride.

 

RING OF FIRE CARNIVAL RIDE

Ripped straight from the memories of Clown’s childhood at the Iowa State Fair is the Ring of Fire. Not for the faint of heart or stomach! There will be a small cover charge per rider.

 

SCENT OF KNOTFEST

KNOTFEST has its own aroma that will infest your brain, body and clothes for days after the festival is over. Personally picked by Slipknot themselves, the smell of KNOTFEST will permeate the festival grounds. Oil drums will be filled with camel shit and oil, set aflame to last the entire festival.

 

GOAT PETTING ZOO

Goats will freely graze in the heavy-petting zoo, where KNOTFEST attendees can get close to their horned spirit animals.

 

TATTOO PARLOR

What festival experience would be complete without a KNOTFEST tattoo? A world-renowned tattooist will be onsite to tattoo you and leave a memory to last a lifetime.

 

JUNK CAR DRUM CIRCLE

Beat on junkyard cars with other KNOTFESTERS throughout the festival hours and into the night. A repeat from year 001, Clown also will play host to a drum circle on junkyard cars. Festivalgoers will join in, and beat the crap out of the cars with metal pipes, poles and whatever else they deem fit.

 

FLAMING CARNIVAL GAMES

Interactive midway style games that incorporate fire, such as a fire-belching tarot card reader or highstriker that shoots 50 foot flames into the night sky!

 

FITZ ARMY FREESTYLE MOTORCROSS SHOW

One of the most insane freestyle motocross demos in the world, Fitz Army is an action packed performance that hosts the biggest tricks, names and mobile freestyle motocross events. Founder and Metal Mulisha athlete Jimmy Fitzpatrick built the show on an adrenaline-choreographed performance. Each member of the Fitz Army freestyle motocross show has proved himself in the action sports industry, with multiple X Games medals, competitions, and world-class tours.
