It looks like Slipknot will have to find another way to make their upcoming festival smell like camel dung.

The masked metallers wanted to mix the excrement with oil in barrels, and then light them on fire around this month's Knotfest in San Bernardino, California.  But TMZ says county officials are putting an end to Slipknot's plan because burning oil is illegal in California, and they're worried the odor might be a public nuisance. 

A rep for Knotfest says the show will go on anyway, but adds that they're currently looking for safer ways to give the festival that camel dung aroma. 

Knotfest 2014 is scheduled to start October 24th.
