SLIPKNOT’s KNOTFEST JAPAN Postponed Yet Again; 2023 Festival Announced

Slipknot's Knotfest Japan has been postponed for a third time.


SLIPKNOT have announced the third postponement of the 2022 edition of Knotfest Japan, which is now set to take place on April 1-2, 2023.

SLIPKNOT were forced to cancel their Asian run back in March 2020, which included their appearance at the 2020 edition of Knotfest Japan, due to COVID-19 concerns.

The festival was then moved to January 10-11, 2021, and then, a few months later, to April 9-10, 2022.

More than just a festival, Knotfest is an event that celebrates all cultural aspects of heavy music. Knotfest is a gathering of the biggest and heaviest bands in the world, a phenomenon created by the multi-platinum act SLIPKNOT. Launched in 2012, the festival established itself in the United States and has consistently expanded its offerings across the globe, with events in Japan, Mexico, Colombia and France.
