Last week (Thursday, May 12) at the Palladium in Hollywood, CA, representatives from some of the 40 acts on the OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST bill gathered together to reveal the merger of two of the most well-known and established brands in rock–OZZFEST, celebrating its 20th anniversary,and KNOTFEST, which debuted in 2012. Beyond the festival namesakes Ozzy Osbourne (with Geezer Butler) and Corey Taylor (with fellow Slipknot members, Shawn “Clown” Crahan and DJ Sid Wilson), Sharon Osbourne; David Draiman, Disturbed; Scott Ian, Anthrax; Zakk Wylde, Black Label Society; Jamey Jasta, Hatebreed; Jill Janus, Huntress; Dave Lombardo, Dead Cross; and Eddie Hermida of Suicide Silence all were on hand for the historic announcement.
The line-up for OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST, Saturday, September 24 (OZZFEST) and Sunday, September 25 (KNOTFEST), at San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, CA, is as follows, with both OZZFEST and KNOTFEST dedicating a stage in honor of their departed comrade Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. Saturday’s OZZFEST will be headlined by Black Sabbath–marking their last Southern California performance ever as part of the band’s final tour–and Sunday’s KNOTFEST bill is topped by the festival’s namesake, Slipknot.
