KNOTFEST.COM has already treated fans to sets from Slipknot, Lamb Of God, Megadeth, and Behemoth all of which have featured band member participation in the comments section during the broadcast and the release of special edition merch items with a portion of profits going to COVID-19 relief charities. SLIPKNOT and the KNOTFEST team would like to extend their warmest thanks to everyone who has joined the live streams, chatted with the artists and ordered merchandise. Through the support of our community, Knotfest.com fundraising efforts have raised over $35,000 so far. The KNOTFEST community has proved, once again, that it is more than a fanbase, it's a family. The many KNOTFEST events worldwide – KNOTFEST Festivals, KNOTFEST Roadshow Tours, and KNOTFEST At Sea – have one purpose, which is to celebrate our community of loud music, art, and culture - together. When we are unable to physically come together to do this, for the sake of the common health and safety of all – KNOTFEST is keeping the celebration going with these weekly live performances. SLIPKNOT and KNOTFEST welcome ALL in the heavy metal community to these events. We hope you enjoy. In the words of Corey Taylor: Take care of yourselves, and take care of each other.
