"It's all about having fun and bringing something to the world of rock & roll, bringing it to the standard it used to be," SLIPKNOT percussionistShawn "Clown" Crahan tells RollingStone.com. "It's time for us to really engulf this idea known as Knotfest where we're in control, we make a day devoted to our mindset, our ideas, the people that we want to play with, the people that we think our fans want to be around. . . When everyone leaves, their senses [will be] overloaded, and I'm talking about smells, sights, hearing, your body, everything is overloaded with stimulation, because that's what SLIPKNOT does."
