Organizers for the first annual KNOTFEST are thrilled to announce that Randy Blythe, lead vocalist for the group Lamb Of God, has been freed from the Czech Republic and is on a flight back to the United States. In their first performance since his imprisonment this past June, Randy and his band will perform live at KNOTFEST in the heart of America on Friday, August 17 in Council Bluffs, IA at Mid America Motorplex and Saturday, August 18 in Somerset, WI/Minneapolis, MN at Somerset Amphitheater.
“We are honored to present Lamb of God and thrilled to learn that Randy will be onstage for what is sure to be an amazing moment at KNOTFEST,” KNOTFEST organizers said.
KNOTFEST is an extraordinary two-date metal and hard rock festival featuring performances from headliners SLIPKNOT as well as DEFTONES, LAMB OF GOD, MACHINE HEAD, SERJ TANKIAN, CANNIBAL CORPSE, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, THE URGE, PRONG, GOJIRA and more. The festival grounds will feature an apocalyptic underworld where firebreathers, nightmarish creatures on stilts, fire and percussive light, and stunning visuals set the stage for an intoxicating and unforgettably sinister concert experience.
