Slipknot has formally announced that they will be playing at the Iowa State Fair for the first time next year. The fair will run from August 8th – 18th in Des Moines, Iowa, and the band will be playing on August 10th.
Percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan told the Des Moines Register:
I’m gonna drive from my house directly to the stage just like I do when I come to the fair. It makes no sense why we haven’t played here.
