Prime example of a few "bad apples" ruining it for everybody else. This past weekend was Knotfest in Mexico City, Mexico. See the line up HERE . Rad right? 

Except. 

 

Set up and ready to take the stage, first Evanescence then Slipknot. Instead a broken barricade put the security of the artists at risk. Shortly after the announcement that Evanescence and Slipknot would not take the stage a riot broke out. Setting Evanescence drum-set on fire for starters. It ultimately lead to both bands gear being destroyed. See below for the footage.
