Ozzfest was a great festival to attend. It was definitely an experience you had to have. I got to go with a really great friend of mine and we had a blast. I actually went to about 7 or 8 of them. It all started back in 1996 and is still happening today. Now they have teamed up with Slipknot and they have a festival called Knotfest. Check it out, what an amazing show to get to see.
“Ozzfest is an annual festival tour of the United States and sometimes Europe (and for the first time Japan in 2013) featuring performances by many heavy metal and hard rock musical groups. It was founded by Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon Osbourne, both of whom 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, deathcore, nu metal, death metal, post-hardcore, gothic metal and black metal. Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath have played the tour several times over the years.“
Check out the song Ozzy sang during the show and from his album Perry Mason. This was one of his first. Right after you can listen to one of my favorites he always does which is “Mama I’m Coming Home.”
