To protect band members and fans alike, Slipknot has announced the cancellation of Knotfest 2020. “Even though we all knew this was coming, we had remained hopeful. We’ve been doing this for decades to protect ourselves, but not everyone was with us,” said lead vocalist Corey Taylor. “Sometimes our band has to sing, and the crowd has to mosh, and we just couldn’t think of a way to do that safely, and the feds are no help.” Despite the disappointment, fans were understanding because they know that people = shit.
