Are you ready to rock?!
We’re proud to announce that The Sandbox is partnering with Knotfest and Slipknot, the most enigmatic, provocative, and aggressive music collective of the modern era, to create the KNOTVERSE, a Web3 home for Slipknot and Knotfest metaverse experiences, concerts, and lifestyle, in The Sandbox.
The collaboration brings together innovators in their respective fields to create a one-of-a-kind meeting place for heavy music culture in the metaverse. KNOTVERSE will host Web3 experiences curated by Knotfest and Slipknot, specifically for the culture. The KNOTVERSE roadmap will see unique NFTs and generative collections, plus metaverse concerts, gaming experiences, fan experiences, unique collaborations, wearables and much more. It will ultimately offer fans of the heavy culture utility through unique access to new music, IRL events, festival experiences, merchandise, gear, masks, and more.
KNOTVERSE is thematically tied to Slipknot’s self-curated, destination festival brand and media site, knotfest.com, an immersive, dark carnival event that spans the globe. The KNOTVERSE LANDS in The Sandbox will inherit the festival’s dark carnival theme and integrate more than 20 years of Slipknot themes and imagery, authentically recreated in voxel form.
“Slipknot has always been about creating new experiences, and opening KNOTVERSE as a shared space is a continuation of our culture as a collective that includes our fans,” said M. Shawn “clown” Crahan. “Everyone who’s ever attended Knotfest, or wanted to, now has an open door to step into a digital version of the experience in The Sandbox that’s live 24/7.”
