Slipknot will celebrate their 25th anniversary by headlining Knotfest Australia in 2025.

Making the announcement 12 months ahead of time, Slipknot, the festival, and promoters Destroy All Lines revealed that if you’re attending this year’s edition of Knotfest Australia, you will receive an exclusive first run of tickets to Knotfest 2025. Those tickets will be available before all other pre-sales.

In addition to the co-headliners, Knotfest Australia has brought out influential heavy metal act Lamb Of God, the Lzzy Hale-led rock band Halestorm, Aussies SPEED, Windwaker, King Parrot and Thy Art Is Murder.
