Last year, Slipknot’s Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan discussed plans for Knotfest to come to the UK with NME.
He said: “It definitely will happen but it has to be the right thing,”
He further said: “Right now we do a lot of festivals with a lot of great people and you’ve got to find a time and a zone and it’s got to be right.”
