Ozzy Osbourne and Slipknot are bringing together the biggest players in metal with the announcement this morning of a combined Ozzfest and Knotfest September 24th and 25th at the San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds, San Bernardino, CA.
In a packed event at the Troubadour in LA, Ozzy Osbourne and Slipknot invited fans for a special free event. The event began with a traveling freak show and screening of the unreleased 2001 Ozzfest Documentary We Sold Our Souls For Rock ‘n Roll directed by Penelope Spheeris (Waynes World, The Little Rascals, The Decline of Western Civilization) but previously unreleased due to legal issues.
Black Sabbath, Slipknot, and a council of Metal legends then took the stage to announce that this years Knotfest will be combined with Ozzfest for a back to back metal ensemble spanning Saturday September 24th and Sunday September 25th
