The 2024 edition of Knotfest Australia kicks off in just under a month, and with the hype ramping up for the country’s biggest touring metal festival, organisers have unveiled the schedule for set times.

All three dates of the festival follow the same format: 30-minute sets from King Parrot, Brand Of Sacrifice, Windwaker, Speed and Skindred, then 35-minute sets for Escape The Fate and Thy Art Is Murder, 40 minutes for Wage War, 45 for Asking Alexandria, 50 for The Hu, then an hour each for Halestorm (notably the only band on the lineup to feature a non-male performer) and Lamb Of God.

The festival’s two exclusive acts – Disturbed and headliners Pantera – will make the most of their billings with extended sets: Disturbed will play for 75 minutes, and Pantera will play for 80.
