This year is the 20th anniversary of Ozzfest, so they’re bringing it back for one weekend in September . . . and they’re merging it with SLIPKNOT’s Knotfest.
Obviously the brightest minds weren’t involved in the naming process, because this is what they came up with: Ozzfest Meets Knotfest. It goes down Saturday, September 24th and Sunday the 25th in San Bernardino, California.
BLACK SABBATHwill headline Saturday’s show, with Megadeth and Disturbed on the bill. Slipknot will headline Sunday, withSlayer and Anthrax. There will also be a second stage named after the late, great Lemmy from Motorhead.
The announcement was made at a venue in Hollywood, by SHARON OSBOURNE. She introduced a bunch of the musicians, including OZZY, who hugged her from behind when he hit the stage. It doesn’t seem like she thought it was a good touch.
But they did show up and leave together.
