Launching Saturday, August 14, 2010, in San Bernardino, CA, -- the birthplace of the first OZZFest in 1996 -- OZZFest returns. This heavy metal juggernaut of a music fest was instrumental in igniting the careers of platinum-selling artists like System of a Down, Disturbed, Linkin Park, Incubus, Slipknot, Queens of the Stone Age, Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold, Mudvayne, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage and Lacuna Coil.
Ozzfest is an annual festival tour of the United States (and in some years, Europe) featuring performances by many heavy metal and hard rock musical groups. It was founded byformer Black Satbbath lead Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon Osbourne -- both of who also organize each yearly tour with their son Jack Osbourne.
The Ozzfest tour has featured bands of a variety of genres within heavy metal and hard rock, including alternative metal, thrash metal, industrial metal, metalcore, hardcore punk, nu metal, death metal, gothic metal and black metal. Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath have played the tour several times over the years.
This year’s tour will include main stage artists Ozzy Osbourne, Mötley Crüe, Rob Halford, DevilDriver and Nonpoint. Second stage headliners Black Label Society will return for their seventh appearance on the tour and will be joined by Drowning Pool, Kingdom of Sorrow, Goatwhore, Skeletonwitch, Saviours and Kataklysm. OZZFest marks the first concerts in the U.S. in connection with the June 22 release of tour founder Ozzy Osbourne’s new album Scream (Epic Records).
In addition to non-stop music on both stages, concert-goers can once again visit the OZZFest “Village of the Damned” featuring a mix of interactive activities, shopping and entertainment throughout the venue concourses.
All six dates of the explosive Live Nation produced tour will feature “all-in ticket pricing” which means there are no hidden fees whatsoever -- no parking charges at the shows, no facility or surcharge fees -- the price you see is the price you pay.
Tickets prices start as low as $30 per ticket when purchased in a four-pack. For complete ticket and tour information visit: www.OZZFest.com and www.LiveNation.com
