Slipknot‘s Knotfest Japan has been postponed once more.

The festival was originally scheduled for March 2020, and was one of the earliest rock events to be delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was first pushed back to January 2021, and then again to April 2022. Now, it’s been rescheduled for a third time, to April 2023.

“We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this has caused the fans that have been looking forward to the event,” the Knot says.

Knotfest has taken place twice in Japan previously, in 2014 and 2016.

Slipknot recently wrapped their Knotfest Roadshow North American tour, which was bookended by Knotfest Iowa and Knotfest Los Angeles. They plan to hold Knotfests in Finland, Chile and Brazil in 2022.
