Ozzfest is happening in 2018 – and on the very last day of the year.
We just received an official press release from Ozzy Osbourne's team noting his namesake festival will be returning this year for a massive New Year's Eve celebration.
It's going down at the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, CA on December 31st and in addition to Ozzy headlining, the show will feature sets from Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Jonathan Davis and Body Count featuring Ice-T.
The press release notes that the Forum will also host an outdoor stage along with other holiday festivities, which will be announced in the coming weeks. The big draw will be Ozzy counting down the New Year.
Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am local time here, ranging from $49.50 for general admission to $179.50 for a reserved seat with additional VIP packages also available.
Here is the official press release for the event:
For the first time since its 1996 debut, OZZFEST–the annual musical event that celebrates hard rock and heavy metal–has created a special one-night-only New Year's Eve celebration to ring in 2019. Set for Monday, December 31 at The Forum in Los Angeles, the event features headliner OZZY OSBOURNE and a line-up of some of the greatest names in rock (and OZZFEST alumni): Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, and Jonathan Davis (of Korn), along with the OZZFEST debut of Body Count featuring Ice-T. The New Year's Eve party will include an outdoor stage, along with other holiday festivities, details of which will be announced in the coming weeks. The evening will conclude with OSBOURNE onstage counting down to the new year!
"I asked Sharon what we're doing this New Year's Eve and she said 'WE'RE DOING FUCK ALL!" says OZZY OSBOURNE. So I thought 'we didn't do Ozzfest in 2018, so let's do a New Year's Eve Ozzfest.'"
"What better way to celebrate New Year's Eve than with some of the greatest performers in this genre and our longtime friends Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Jonathan Davis and Ice T," says Sharon Osbourne.
