GRAMMY AWARD winning Slipknot started in 1995, and is a sonic collision of unstoppable music, back-breaking stage shows, and visuals that will keep you looking over your shoulder – a full-frontal attack on every sense known to Man.
From the over-caffeinated beats and jungle scratches to the searing riffs and driving vocals, the music has elements from almost every known music in the world. It’s also heavy as hell, and the feeling behind the music is never more evident than seeing the live show.
Hire Slipknot for your festival or concert plans!
The motto for Slipknot has always been ‘no limits,’ in everyday life, on stage, even down to the tiniest details. Nothing backs this up like their line-up: a main drummer, two stand-up drummers, two guitarists, bass player, lead singer, DJ, and a sampler. “We’re like a white version of the Wu-Tang Clan,” drummer Joey Jordison jokes. This isn’t just a band, but a family, an army, a musician’s wrecking crew.
Then there are the masks. This is no gimmick, but almost an extension of each member’s personality. “You’re only free until you come face to face with who you are,” lead singer Corey Taylor said. “You deal with it, you accept it, then you revel in it.” “This is the first thing I’ve heard in the last two to three years that’s got me truly excited,” said Monte Conner, senior vice president of A&R at Roadrunner Records.
Hire Slipknot for your special event or occasion.
This band from Des Moines, Iowa, has gathered a loyal following in the Midwest and surrounding states, selling out local shows for the last two years. While unsigned, they played KKDM’s Dotfests 1 and 2, local music festivals drawing more than 20,000 people and gaining them exclusive media attention both times.
Their single, “Spit It Out,” was the #1 most requested song on KKDM for 3 months. It was added to the radio industry, which caught the attention of Ross Robinson in January ’97. Ross, who calls them a “wolf pack of Beavises,” helped Slipknot get a spot on the EAT’M festival in Las Vegas. Extreme 107.5 in Vegas added “Spit It Out” to their “Cagematch,” pitting songs against one another. Slipknot were champs for 5 weeks until they were retired.
After EAT’M, there were many offers from labels, and the band finally signed with Roadrunner, where they feel “at home, more like a family than a label.”
The members of Slipknot are said to be influenced by Kiss, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Jimi Hendrix, Deicide, Pantera, Anthrax, Metal Church, Judas Priest, Megadeth, Sepultura, White Zombie, Alice in Chains, Malevolent Creation, Danny Heifetz, Nine Inch Nails, Neurosis, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Melvins, N.W.A, Skinny Puppy, Mayhem, Dimmu Borgir, Iron Maiden, Emperor, Beastie Boys, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Misfits, Gorefest, Run-DMC, Acid Bath, Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, and Metallica. Corey Taylor has spoken of his admiration for vocalists Freddie Mercury, Bruce Dickinson, David Lee Roth, Bruce Springsteen and James Hetfield. In 1999, Chris Fehn said Sid Wilson is influenced by jungle music and rave music.
Their discography includes eight studio albums, three live albums, one compilation album, one demo album, one EP, twenty-seven singles, five video albums and twenty-seven music videos.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE SLIPKNOT?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire SLIPKNOT for an event?)
(i.e., what is SLIPKNOT booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for SLIPKNOT, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
