Slipknot Formally Announce Iowa State Fair Appearance

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.┬áIt makes no sense why we haven’t played here.

Tickets are now on sale through this site.
