Recently, Corey Taylor served as a guest on Jamey Jasta from Hatebreed’s podcast Jasta Show has revealed that there is a possibility of Knotfest turning into a touring festival.
The idea formed while speaking to Ozzy Osbourne about passing the torch from Ozzfest to Knotfest.
From the Jasta Show.
“It’s definitely something we’re thinking about and it’s one of the reasons why we built it the way we have,” Taylor revealed. “For us it was about the foundation of the brand itself. It was making sure that this was something that we could continue to build up. You don’t want to go from zero to a million.”
“So, it’s something that we’re definitely thinking about – certain spots in America – making Knotfest dates. And – this is important – we’re not afraid to take it away for a year and then bring it back. That’s what people don’t understand. It’s not completely gone, because we’re doing the one in Colombia. But, it doesn’t have to be a yearly thing. Do it one country one year, do it in a couple other countries the next year. It doesn’t have to be something like that so you’re constantly, constantly stabilizing your brand and making money and doing something cool.”

Knotfest last teamed up with Ozzfest on November 4th and 5th of 2017, sadly without Slipknot. It did, however, include Corey’s other band Stone Sour. Stone Sour played alongside Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Eighteen Visions and more. Ozzfest featured Ozzy Ozbourne alongside The Deftones, Prophets of Rage and others. This October Knotfest will visit Bogota in Columbia with Judas Priest, Helloween and many more.
With respect to Slipknot news, Corey has announced that he will be prioritizing his work with Slipknot which also necessitates a new album!
