Knotfest was previously held in Japan in 2014 and 2016. The planned return in 2020 was postponed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In other Knotfest news, Motionless in White has dropped off the lineup for this weekend’s Knotfest Brazil, citing “widespread and serious illness amongst our band and touring crew.” The group was also scheduled to perform in Brazil this week with Bring Me the Horizon.

Motionless canceled a U.S. concert earlier this month due to frontman Chris “Motionless” Cerulli battling an upper respiratory infection.
