Slipknot will headline the main stage on the second and third nights of the festival, with "brand-new music and an entirely new stage set and experience," a press release promises. The Knotfest lineup also includes Danzig, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Anthrax, Killswitch Engage, Tech N9ne, Of Mice & Men and Black Label Society, among others.

Last March, Slipknot announced that Knotfest would be heading to Tokyo this November, with Korn, Limp Bizkit, Lamb of God and others performing overseas. Tickets for the California portion of the festival are on sale now.

"Knotfest is a chance for Slipknot to bring the sensory overload of a wild European festival — and now we're coming for you, California," says Slipknot’s M. Shawn Crahan (Clown) in a statement. "Playing two different sets over two nights at one location is a new experience in the history of this band. This year's Knotfests in the U.S. and Japan are going to be on another level."
