SLIPKNOT are to broadcast their final live performance of 2012 online via ‘Pay Per View’, during the group’s first-ever KNOTFEST, an extraordinary two-day ‘European-style’ metal and hard rock festival. The KNOTFEST Live ‘Pay Per View’ event is a partnership between TODOCAST and Synergy Global Entertainment. The official broadcast website will launch on 11th August. Fans can sign up to order at http://www.EventViewLive.com.
“One of our long-time dreams is finally coming to fruition with the creation of KNOTFEST,” says M. Shawn Crahan, aka clown of Slipknot. “Our goal was to create a festival experience which screamed our vision. It means everything for everyone to see the live spectacle we’re creating in the flesh, but we understand some fans around the world can’t be at the show. We’ve now made it possible for you to be there in spirit – so join us live on August 18th.”
The SLIPKNOT Live at Knotfest event can be accessed from any internet device at $14.95 for early bird fans, starting today through to 11th August. The week before the event, the price will rise to $19.95. Fans who purchase early will receive full access to “Slipknot Saturdays” which begin Saturday 14th July (and continue each Saturday until the event) and feature exclusive SLIPKNOT performances and video footage documenting the road to KNOTFEST. The SLIPKNOT Live at Knotfest event will include all the insanity that goes on backstage. Fans can Pause it. Rewind it. Re watch it. Day-of-show footage includes a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the festival grounds, pre-show interviews with KNOTFEST artists and US music TV presenter Mistress Juliya, the stunning high-definition main stage performance of SLIPKNOT, as well as exclusive post-show interviews with the band. The entire SLIPKNOT Live at Knotfest package is also available to purchasers for on-demand viewing for 30 days following the event.
