Corey Taylor has revealed to Billboard, that Slipknot will not be present at the 2017 Ozzfest Meets Knotfest and Knotfest Mexico festivals. With this news, he also confirmed that his other band Stone Sour will be playing both events.
Taylor said the following:
“I think in a lot of ways your festival has to live past you, or it’s not gonna live at all. If it has to live and breathe on your presence, then it’s not a festival, and it’s not for anybody else but you. And for us, it’s always been more about the art and the music and everybody… That’s why we put so much work into it to begin with, is to really make sure that it was stable and it was strong and the foundation was there.”
Details for Ozzfest Meets Knotfest are expected to be revealed on July 10, while Knotfest Mexico is set to take place at the Foro Pegaso in Toluca, Mexico on October 28
