Speaking on joining the first-ever Knotfest At Sea, BEHEMOTH frontman Nergal says: "Maggots and Legions! Our momentous tour with SLIPKNOT comes to an end in a few days and it's been our biggest in Europe to date! But I'm beyond excited that our comradeship with SLIPKNOT ain't over yet… for we're teaming up with them again for Knotfest At Sea! We look forward to feasting again this summer!"
DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara adds: "DEVILDRIVER is extremely honored to be asked to play the first KnotFest At Sea cruise! We cannot wait to sail the high seas together with SLIPKNOT and this killer lineup of bands. So raise the Skull & Crossbones and prepare for a party at sea."
The Knotfest brand continues to expand around the globe, with landmark events held in the U.S., Japan, Mexico and Colombia, as well as 2019's debut collaboration with French destination festival Hellfest for Knotfest Meets Hellfest. In additional new territory for 2020, the first-ever Knotfest UK will take place at The National Bowl, Milton Keynes on August 22. The event will be headlined by SLIPKNOT, with a lineup still to be announced.
