Heavy music fans will be pleased to know that legendary festival Knotfest will be returning to Southern California this fall! The three-day metal and heavy music festival will be held October 24th through 26th at San Manuel Amphitheater & Campgrounds in San Bernardino, CA. This particular iteration is notable because it’s the first time Knotfest will be held in the same location for multiple days.

Knotfest US 2014 is powered by Rockstar Energy Drink and will feature a Slipknot-curated lineup of over 60 bands, including Slipknot (duh), Danzig, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Anthrax, Killswitch Engage, Tech N9ne, Of Mice & Men, Black Label Society, Testament, Hatebreed, Atreyu, In This Moment, Carcass, and more. Aside from all the heaviest of heavy music, the event will also feature over 20 festival attractions, including a Slipknot Museum (curated by the band), carnival rides, a zip line across the festival grounds, drum circles, pillars of fire, freaks, fire-breathers, stilt-walkers, and so much more.
