Slipknot are doing a cruise

Beautiful aggression on the high seas.

I mean, there's really no point in fleshing that headline out any further, is there?


2019 has been a good year for Slipknot, returning with superb sixth album We Are Not Your Kind and topping the charts in the process.

They also spoke to JOE at length, which was very enjoyable.

You can read that here.

2020, however, looks to be even more exciting for the masked men.


For one, we have their long-awaited return to Irish shores to look forward to in the form of a headline date at Dublin's 3Arena on Tuesday 14 January, 2020.

If you're not attending that event for whatever reason, perhaps you'd prefer to catch the Iowa metal titans by sea? Because, yes, that's actually a thing that is happening.

Slipknot are doing an official cruise.

This isn't unheard of, as it turns out. Kid Rock does them - do take the time to read GQ's excellent account of the 2013 edition - and Chris Jericho recently got into the nautical game, presenting a voyage that included live music, stand-up comedy and professional wrestling.


Officially announced on Friday, the inaugural Knotfest at Sea will take place over four days between 10 - 14 August of next year off the coast of Barcelona with Slipknot playing two sets in all.

A full line-up and "onboard experiences" will be unveiled next month.

For now, here's Clown to tell you more about it:

As for how much it all costs, well, it's more than your average gig.

According to the official website, prices start at $1,150 (€1,040.60) per person for an interior stateroom, while an ocean view stateroom costs $1,550 (€1,402.55).

Balconies and suites, meanwhile, will set you back a cool $1,850 (€1,674).

You likely have a lot of questions. Good thing there's an FAQ section, then.


All aboard?
