A trailer for the festival can be seen below. Also available is a three-minute video wrap-up of last year's Knotfest, which was held on October 25-26, 2014 in Devore.

The Vixlet-sponsored GTV Knotfest simulcast included SLIPKNOT's two full performances, as well as select songs from most of the bands performing at the festival. Saturday and Sunday were each highlighted by SLIPKNOT's unique closing sets on Stage 001, featuring brand new music from their latest album, ".5: The Gray Chapter" and an entirely new stage set and experience.

More than 20,000 people reportedly packed the San Manuel Amphitheater for Knotfest U.S. — powered by Rockstar Energy Drink — which featured a massive lineup of over 50 bands playing on five stages on Saturday and Sunday. SLIPKNOT was joined by some of the biggest names in metal, including DANZIG, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, VOLBEAT, ANTHRAX, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, IN THIS MOMENT, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, OF MICE & MEN, TESTAMENT, FEAR FACTORY, HATEBREED, NAPALM DEATH, ATREYU, HELLYEAH, and dozens more.

The festival was an epic experience for Maggots and metalheads even apart from the five stages of earsplitting music, with the SLIPKNOT-curated Slipknot Museum, the Fire Zone, Ring Of Fire carnival ride, Thunderdome, Fitz Army Freestyle Motocross Show, Junk Car Drum Circle, and more.

In addition, Friday night's VIP Pre-Party Bash featured exclusive performances from SUICIDE SILENCE, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, BUTCHER BABIES and more for those that purchased VIP or Camping Packages.
