Wacken Open Air announces Slipknot for a headliner slot in 2020

Midnight, the witching hour – even more so in the final night of October to the 1st of November, when according to the popular American Halloween tradition all sorts of ghosts, vampires, and other nocturnal creatures are roaming around in seach of sweets and other treats.

There is no better time to announce a true metal monster for the upcoming 31st edition of the Wacken Open Air: SLIPKNOT!

The mask wearing metal maniacs from Des Moines, Iowa have not just evolved into massive chart strikers since their foundation in 1995, but have also earned a justified reputation as a most impressive live act. Anyone who has witnessed the 9-piece band fronted by exceptional vocalist Corey Taylor on stage knows which enormous power their unique baselball bad wielding brand of modern metal can achieve live. Almost one year after the American headliners released their current album "We Are Not Your Kind", SLIPKNOT will enter the mainstage at the Wacken Open Air – for the first time ever at this festival.

The following bands have already been announced for the coming 31st edition of the Wacken Open Air in 2020 (in alphabetical order): AMON AMARTH, ANNIHILATOR, AT THE GATES, BEAST IN BLACK, CEMICAN, DEATH ANGEL, DIRKSCHNEIDER, HYPOCRISY, JUDAS PRIEST, KAMPFAR, MERCYFUL FATE, NERVOSA, ORDEN OGAN, OVERKILL, SICK OF IT ALL, SLIPKNOT, SODOM, U.D.O. (mit Bundeswehr Orchester), VENOM, WHILE SHE SLEEPS
