Slipknot’s Knotfest Japan 2014 Welcomes Korn and Limp Bizkit
Slipknot had such an enjoyable time playing 2013’s Ozzfest in Japan that they took a page out of the book and relocated Knotfest to Japan for 2014. The second staging of the Slipknot-organized event will take place Nov. 15 and 16 at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Tokyo and the first two acts joining Slipknot have been revealed.
It will be a bit of an old school lineup as frequent ‘Family Values’ participants Korn and Limp Bizkit will be making their way to Japan for the event. Korn have enjoyed a big year with their latest album, ‘The Paradigm Shift.’ The disc has already spawned the hit singles ‘Never Never,’ ‘Love & Meth’ and ‘Spike in My Veins,’ with the potential for even more hits.
Limp Bizkit, meanwhile, have been working on new music for their upcoming release, ‘Stampede of the Disco Elephants.’ The lead single for the album, ‘Ready to Go,’ was released in April 2013.
It is not known who else will join Slipknot, Korn and Limp Bizkit on Knotfest 2014, but more acts are expected to be added. Stay tuned to the festival website for additional details.
