Photo Gallery: Knotfest at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre

| August 14, 2019

Metal from around the world converged last weekend in Tinley Park. The occasion was the 2019 Knotfest Roadshow, a sort of mini-festival curated by Iowa shock rockers Slipknot. The band has also invited Poland’s Behemoth, Gojira from France and Denmark’s Volbeat to join their current sojourn. Well, the masked metal collective from the Hawkeye State sure got something right because the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater was packed to near capacity with Heshers of varying ages. Face paint, pyro, steam cannons and, most importantly, endless Marshall stacks filtered distortion pedals and down tuning to the faithful at voluminous levels. Ear protection came highly recommended. A simple glimpse in any direction seemed to indicate that said parental advice went almost completely ignored.
