The first-ever German edition of the festival features a multi-generational roster of heavy music’s elite.

The final line-up for the German edition of the counter culture celebration that is Knotfest has landed and the July 30th congregation will be nothing short of monumental.

Convening at Rudolf Weber-ARENA in Oberhausen, the festival footprint includes a spectacular open-air stage, in addition to the main stage within the arena. Among the very first artists initially confirmed for the 2022 pilgrimage included Swedish progressive metal heroes, In Flames (who just released new music – HERE) as well as genre-obliterating phenom, Ghostemane.

The second wave of confirmations recruited Sweden’s most important prog pioneers in Meshuggah bolstering the epic bill. Also announced were UK’s breakout kings of beatdown with Malevolence joining ranks as well as California deathgrind stalwarts Cattle Decapitation amping the assault.

Now, the final four bands of the promised ten have been unveiled in what amounts to a multi-generational, multi-dynamic assembly of the very best in aggressive music. Ukrainian groove metal titans Jinjer have been confirmed for the event along with progressive powerhouse TesseracT. Rounding out the line-up and representing metal’s next generation, Glasgow standouts Bleed From Within will celebrate the release of the latest, Shrine with an appearance in Germany. Also, Des Moines’ new school aggressors Vended will kick off the festivities and make their Deutschland debut.

Serving as the curators and culmination of the festivities, Slipknot will deliver their unparalleled live spectacle and introduce German fans to the Knotfest experience for the first-time ever. In addition, the Slipknot Museum will be presented on site, with arts & culture installations adding an interactive element for the 25,000 fans set to converge on the grounds.
