Slipknot announce Knotfest Finland with Nightwish, BMTH and more

Nightwish, Bring Me The Horizon, Arch Enemy and, of course, Slipknot, are among the first names for Knotfest Finland in 2022

With Slipknot planning a huge summer in Europe next year, the band have just made things eeeeeven bigger with the announcement of their inaugural Knotfest Finland.

The band have recruited (so far) Nightwish, Bring Me The Horizon, Arch Enemy, Stam1na and Blind Channel for the event, which takes place in Turku from August 12 – 13. Presumably more artists will be added in the future, so keep your eyes peeled.

With the world opening up, it’s time to get excited about life again. To get back to life again,” Corey Taylor previously said of the band’s return to the road.
