Slipknot hope to expand Knotfest in North America

Fri, August 14, 2015 12:25 PM PT5,437 views

In an interview conducted this past weekend at Heavy Montreal in Quebec, Canada, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor revealed that while he's hesitant to expand the band's festival, Knotfest, to a full-blown tour, he'd like to do a handful of shows in North America. Speaking to MusikUniverse.mu (video below), Taylor had this to say:
"There's been talk about it. My problem is that it's a little more than I wanna grow Knotfest right now. I wanted it to kind of grow in increments and slowly expand. I think if we turned Knotfest into a big tour, then we would lose a lot of the elements that make it so cool. It wouldn't be a two to three days anymore, it would be a one-day thing, and we wouldn't be able to bring out a lot of the elements that we like, like the carnivals and the museum and stuff. So it's definitely a conversation that's going on right now, that we're trying to figure out. But, you know, I mean, never say never. Let's see what happens. "We're gonna continue to do the Knotfest shows. Right now we're trying to figure out how big to make them and how to expand it. My idea was to do maybe ten weekends in diferent places — maybe five in the U.S., a couple up in Canada, and maybe one down in Mexico City. Just try to expand it like that, so people get the actual experience of it, and you're not running yourself into the ground trying to chase something that it isn't. So that's what we're looking at right now."
