Arguably the most anticipated heavy music event of the year is set for Friday November 5th with Slipknot taking over Banc of California Stadium for the Los Angeles edition of the counter0-culture celebration that is Knotfest.
Bolstered by a dynamic roster of supporting artists that showcase the multi-generational health of heavy music as a whole, the festival will feature performances by UK arena-sensation Bring Me The Horizon, veteran shredders Killswitch Engage, genre game changers Fever 333 and Code Orange, heavy's new generation in Vended and fiery special guests in Macabret specialists Cherry Bombs.
The stacked supporting bill only serves to augment a Friday night in Los Angeles with Slipknot - an evening that has all the makings to be especially historic given the long lay off of live music and the band's well-established roots with the Southern California faithful.
To ensure fans making the trek to Knotfest LA at Banc of California Stadium are best prepared for what will certainly be a night to remember, it's time to rundown the details of what to expect and how things will be laid out upon arrival.
The following is intended to be a handy post that will better highlight not only what fans can expect from the stage, but everything else comprising the Knotfest experience. From the set times to the site map, here is the rundown of KNOTFEST Los Angeles 2021.
