Slipknot to play Roskilde Festival 2013

The clowns from hell play one of this summer's few chosen concerts on Roskilde Festival’s the Orange Stage.

More blood-dripping metal makes its way entry into Roskilde Festival's lineup.

Almost 15 years after their debut album, SLIPKNOT (US) has become one of the world's greatest metal bands – on a par with much older icons. They have conquered a top spot in the black league with a series of raging metal albums and unforgettable stage shows in which they commit themselves 101 %.

Plays few shows in 2013
The Iowa band’s Roskilde debut was in 2004. In 2009, they proved again why their hard-tuned metal extravagance is perfect for the Orange Stage and the very top of the festival poster. Slipknot crowns just a few, chosen festival posters in 2013 as absolute headliners.

The joy and pride of having them back is great. In recent years, there has been some doubt as to whether the band would continue – even if their homecoming show at Knotfest in Iowa last summer gave renewed hope.

Roskilde Festival has already announced Queens of the Stone Age, Volbeat, Sigur Rós, C2C, Kvelertak, Deadelus and Goat for the 2013 edition.
