Knotfest Japan, which was originally scheduled for March 2020, was one of the first big music events postponed due to COVID-19. In fact, Slipknot announced the postponement a week before the virus outbreak was officially characterized as a pandemic.

Last week, Slipknot announced the details of Knotfest Brazil, set to take place December 2021. They’re also readying plans for Knotfests in Chile and Colombia.
