No Ozzfest This Year (Sorta)


The annual summer heavy-metal rock concert known as Ozzfest is changing things up this year!

It will no longer be touring the country and performing nonstop. Instead, they have settled on making Ozzfest a one-day mega event.

It will take place this year in Dallas at the Pizza Hut Park on Saturday, August 9th.

The headliners include Metallica, and – of course – Ozzy Osbourne.

Of the event, family matriarch and manager Sharon Osbourne says, “Ozzy just finished an 11-month world tour, so I think he deserves a summer off. We’re going to be a stadium destination festival for now ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ we have gone past doing the sheds every summer. We’ve given everyone else the blueprint and we have to keep evolving Ozzfest.”


If all goes well, next year she can turn Ozzfest into a 3-day super mega festival!

Sharon adds, “This is just the beginning. Ozzy has great relationships with all of the bands that have played Ozzfest. We’re the only real festival for harder-edge bands and these artists have been very loyal to us ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ there is lots of love on this lineup.”

Ozzfest tickets go on sale Saturday, May 31.
