Knotfest 2014 to Include Flaming Carnival Games, Junk Car Drum Circle, Camel Dung Scent + More
Ready for Knotfest this October? You already know that Slipknot, Danzig, Volbeat, Anthrax, Five Finger Death Punch and many others are set to perform at the three-day event, but Slipknot have just announced the gritty details that will make Knotfest truly unique.
Some of these instillations seem innocent enough, such as the Slipknot museum:
A tented museum curated by the members of Slipknot themselves. Slipknot’s history on display to include priceless Slipknot artifacts such as masks, suits, art, previously used equipment and other memorabilia from the members themselves personal archives and home garages.
A petting zoo will also be found at Knotfest so fans can pet many of Satan's most favorite animal, the goat. Slipknot are even introducing a zip line that that will allow fans to fly above the Knotfest crowd at high speeds. The band also promises a "low cost" per ride.
Sure, zip lines are a bit scary, but Knotfest will bring true fear and danger with its other attractions:
COSTUMED PERFORMANCE ARTISTS:
30+ costumed pagan performers roam around festival adorned as different creatures tapping into your nightmares. Included in these performers will be firewalkers, fire breathers and sword swallowers…
RING OF FIRE CARNIVAL RIDE:
Ripped straight from the memories of Clown’s childhood at the Iowa State Fair is the Ring of Fire. Not for the faint of heart or stomach! There will be a small cover charge per rider.
What festival experience would be complete without a KNOTFEST tattoo? A world-renowned tattooist will be onsite to tattoo you and leave a memory to last a lifetime.
JUNK CAR DRUM CIRCLE:
Beat on junkyard cars with other KNOTFESTERS throughout the festival hours and into the night. A repeat from year 001, Clown also will play host to a drum circle on junkyard cars. Festivalgoers will join in, and beat the crap out of the cars with metal pipes, poles and whatever else they deem fit.
FLAMING CARNIVAL GAMES:
Interactive midway style games that incorporate fire, such as a fire-belching tarot card reader or highstriker that shoots 50 foot flames into the night sky!
FITZ ARMY FREESTYLE MOTORCROSS SHOW:
One of the most insane freestyle motocross demos in the world, Fitz Army is an action packed performance that hosts the biggest tricks, names and mobile freestyle motocross events. Founder and Metal Mulisha athlete Jimmy Fitzpatrick built the show on an adrenaline-choreographed performance. Each member of the Fitz Army freestyle motocross show has proved himself in the action sports industry, with multiple X Games medals, competitions, and world-class tours.
How's that for an experience? There's just one more essential Knotfest characteristic -- the scent:
SCENT OF KNOTFEST:
KNOTFEST has its own aroma that will infest your brain, body and clothes for days after the festival is over. Personally picked by Slipknot themselves, the smell of KNOTFEST will permeate the festival grounds. Oil drums will be filled with camel s--t and oil, set aflame to last the entire festival.
Yep… the sweet scent of flaming camel dung will occupy your nasal cavity for the full three days.
Knotfest will take place from Oct. 24-26 at the San Manuel Amphitheater & Campgrounds in San Bernardino, Calif. Tickets are still available, so to grab your own, click here.
