OZZFEST 2010 Press Release!!! OMFG!!!

Ozzfest.com has released the official lineup for this year's Ozzfest. It is as follows:

Main Stage:


**Major main-stage band to be announced on May 23

Second Stage:


Second Stage (rotating):


According to an official press release, OZZY OSBOURNE is set to debut his new band while they play the BLIZZARD OF OZZ album in it's entirety. "We wanted to do something different", stated OZZY OSBOURNE.

This year's main stage lineup features headliner and multiplatinum metal legends METALLICA and such formidable artists as DOWN and MASTODON. Fans can also expect a major main stage addition to be revealed on May 23.

Headlining this year's second stage as a perennial favorite is the GODSMACK, who are back on the charts with their new single 'Crying Like A Bitch' from their forthcoming album 'The Oracle'. Joining them are such high-decibel bands whose names alone underline their fiercely uncompromising vision: ZAKK WYLDE & THE BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, FEAR FACTORY, DEVILDRIVER, ALL THAT REMAINS, 36 CRAZYFISTS, DIRGE WITHIN, KITTIE, LAZARUS A. D., SKELETONWITCH, and WALLS OF JERICHO.

The tour will mark Ozzy Osbourne's first solo concert tour in three years (having headlined Ozzfest with his solo band back in 2007) and will showcase new gutiarist GUS G., bassist BLASKO, and newly aquired drummer ROBERT CLUFOTOS. Ozzy will be debuting new songs at Ozzfest from the solo album that he's currently working on with his new band (release date In July).
'Scream' will be Ozzy's first solo album of new material since 2007.

Ozzfest has taken on a life of its own and has become a virtual breeding ground for rising bands. The festival has been instrumental in catapulting the careers of platinum-selling artists like SYSTEM OF A DOWN, DISTURBED, LINKIN PARK, INCUBUS, SLIPKNOT, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, DROWNING POOL, GODSMACK, CHEVELLE and P.O.D. among others.

"As we head into our fifteenth year," says tour founder Sharon Osbourne, "Ozzfest remains committed to its original vision of sharing this vibrant music and lifestyle that was and is still overlooked by the mainstream media. It's something real that our audience understands — and demands and they're undying support for this music is the reason for Ozzfest's continued success.

"Ozzfest has thrived because of repeat business," Osbourne continues. Fans of this music know firsthand that Ozzfest offers them a full-day of music. We give them a chance to see the best of the new bands on the second stage to the legends of the genre on the main stage. It's the only place to see all of these bands on one show!"

Originally launched in 1996, the all-day extravaganza of music and deranged merriment is roaring louder than ever and has produced impressive figures. Number of bands to grace its stages: 146. Number of shows: 263. Number of fans: 4-and-a-half million and counting.

In addition to drawing vital hard rock acts, Ozzfest has always attracted a variety of select sponsors devoted to the tour's core fan base. In addition to hosting the second stage, Monster Energy will be hosting a VIP/Hospitality area and will invite a limited number of fans to cool off and get re-energized with a cold Monster Energy. Hot Topic will be the festival's official soft line retailer. PlayStation will be out in force, giving fans a chance to play the latest software titles for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system and the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system while enjoying the hard sounds of the Village of the Damned at Ozzfest. F.Y.E. (For Your Entertainment) is on board for the fifth consecutive year as the official music retailer and will host the FYE autograph tent giving fans the opportunity to meet some of their favorite Ozzfest artists. Trojan brand condoms will also have presence in the Village as the official condom of Ozzfest. Jagermeister will once again bring the backyard BBQ party back to Ozzfest and prove their commitment to metal music with artist autograph signings and tons of free swag for attendees 21 and over.

Artist quotes:

Lars Ulrich (METALLICA): "We're thrilled to again be a part of one of the greatest American festival traditions. Ozzfest was an amazing time for METALLICA in 2008. We look very forward to the summer of 2010."

Sully Erna (GODSMACK): "Ozzfest is where we were born. It's been the breeding ground for many hard rock/heavy metal bands and it helped make us who we are. Sharon and Ozzy have both always been strong supporters of the band and we are honored to be doing this tour for a fourth time and to be sharing the stage with some significant Ozzfest alumni."

Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY): "First off, the Ozzfest is the most slamming tour out there. I look forward to it every year. You get a chance to see some ass-kickin' new bands and legendary bands, as well. Aside of that, you can hang out all day and drink beer with your buds. Long live Ozzy and Sharon! Long live the Ozzfest!"

Philip Anselmo(DOWN, PANTERA): "DOWN is extremely excited and honored to be a part of this year's Ozzfest. It is by far THE BEST tour we've ever been involved with and we are looking forward to joining up for our fourth year! We will be releasing our fourth album this summer and we plan on playing a bunch of new songs that we've yet to perform live and we're proud to have graduated to the mainstage where our heroes BLACK SABBATH, OZZY, SLAYER, JUDAS PRIEST and many others have performed. We have a lot of surprises in store! See you all this summer!"
