Slipknot to play for the first time at Wacken Open Air in 2020!
Just in time for the Halloween witching hour, Wacken Open Air festival announce one of its headliner for 2020: No one less than the American metal institution Slipknot, who will perform at the festival for the very first time.
The band, founded in 1995 in Iowa, is not only known for the iconic masks of its members, but also for their extensive live performances with groundbreaking show effects. A sophisticated light and pyro show meets an only occasionally controlled madness, which mocks all comparisons with other bands.
And of course everything is right on the musical front too, as the album We Are Not Your Kind, which was released earlier this year, once again impressively proved. With songs like Nero Forte the band links to their classic hits like Psychosocial, while the experimental Spiders opens up new musical territory for the musicians.
The organizers of W:O:A are proud to finally welcome this so important band to festival and to fulfill one of the biggest wishes of the fans since many years, and looking forward to an extraordinary performance.
