Ozzfest 2008 Announced As One Day Fest

Ozzfest 2008 has been announced as taking place August 9th in Dallas, TX.

Official press release:

All eyes and ears will be on Dallas, Texas Saturday, August 9. No conspiracy theory here, just the facts.

Ozzfest, the original and iconic hard rock festival, returns in 2008 as a one-day stadium spectacular that teams Ozzfest founder and namesake Ozzy Osbourne (in his only U.S. concert appearance this summer) with Metallica (marking their Ozzfest debut).

Produced by Sharon Osbourne and AEG Live, the all-day festival at Pizza Hut Park in hard music-loving Dallas will feature three stages of non-stop talent (with many Ozzfest alumni) and reliably twisted Ozzfest side attractions.

The full main stage lineup will also spotlight performances by Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Hellyeah, Jonathan Davis (Korn), Cavalera Conspiracy, Shadows Fall, Apocalyptica and In This Moment. Also scheduled on the main stage is a special all-star tribute to slain Pantera guitarist 'Dimebag' Darrell Abbott. Second stage acts include Sevendust, Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. The Texas (third) stage, "an homage to the "many great metal bands that come from Texas," says Sharon Osbourne, features The Sword, Drowning Pool and Rigor Mortis.

"Ozzy just finished an 11-month world tour so I think he deserves a summer off," Sharon says about this year's one-day Ozzfest. "We're going to be a stadium destination festival for now--we have gone past doing the sheds every summer. We've given everyone else the blueprint and we have to keep evolving Ozzfest. This is just the beginning; AEG Live and I have a lot of new ideas for Ozzfest."

This year's dynamic line-up encompasses artists who've played Ozzfest before in different incarnations such as Serj Tankian (System of a Down); Jonathan Davis (Korn); Hellyeah's Vinnie Paul (Pantera) and Chad Gray (Mudvayne); Kingdom of Sorrow's Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed) and Kirk Windstein (Down); and Max Cavalera (Soulfly, Sepultura) of Cavalara Conspiracy. Other Ozzfest graduates include Shadows Fall, Sevendust, Devildriver, Drowning Pool and In This Moment.

"Ozzy has great relationships with all of the bands that have played Ozzfest," says Sharon. "We're the only real festival for harder edge bands and these artists have been very loyal to us--there is lots of love on this line-up."

Tickets for this year's Ozzfest will go on sale Saturday, May 31. For up-to-the-minute details go to www.Ozzfest.com.

I'm just happy Ozzy is still kicking!

So is this a forever thing, or just cuz Ozzy toured for his cd this year because no more Ozzfest tour would suck!

Does that mean you are going?! HRM?!

I think this is the future of this event. That's what I heard, anyway.

If anyone wants to go, you can crash on my floor! I live in a one room apartment....not a one bedroom, one ROOM. Above Lance's mom's garage! lol. Aida can sleep in the house that night and I might even share my bed with someone!

I'd go just to see Cavalera Conspiracy. If only it was a wee-bit closer

Metallica would be worth seeing. They are the best live band I've ever seen.

I've heard that. I'm not a big Metallica fan. I like Old metallica, though.

Cavalera conspiracy would be worth it for me. As long as they play some Sepultura and Soulfly for me. Theres a lot going on for Metal fans. I'd think they could find more Texas metal though, how about WASP?

FYI - If anyone is going to this book your hotel in Frisco, TX. Not Dallas. Pizza Hut Park is in Frisco. I'm not sure how long of a drive it is from Dallas to Frisco, but you'd be better off booking your hotel in Frisco. Even Allen if you have to.
