Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie to headline Ozzfest Meets Knotfest

Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie will headline the 2017 edition of Ozzfest Meets Knotfest over the November 4/5 weekend at Glen Helen Amphitheater And Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, CA.

The Black Sabbath singer’s first solo Los Angeles-area show in more than six years will top the November 4 Ozzfest bill alongside Prophets Of Rage, Deftones, Children Of Bodom and more than a dozen metal acts.

The rocker has resumed his solo career following the completion of Black Sabbath’s farewell tour earlier this year.

“Last year's show with Black Sabbath was just incredible,” says Osbourne, “and I'm thrilled to be coming back this year with Zakk, Tommy, Blasko and Adam to headline the 21st anniversary of Ozzfest."

The November 5 Knotfest will see Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Stone Sour and Eighteen Visions on the main stage, with fourteen bands hitting two other stages.

Noticeably absent this year are Knotfest founders Slipknot, who will curate the event.

"Knotfest was never supposed to be exclusively about Slipknot,” explains frontman Corey Taylor. “It was always about the things that fueled the spirit of Slipknot: music, art, passion, insanity, and the tribes that give it power. So it would make sense for Knotfest to carry on these ideas, even without Slipknot. Because these things are the gasoline of creativity, and there's plenty to go around, with plenty of great bands, acts and things to see.

“Teaming up again with Ozzfest means another weekend of the biggest, baddest, loudest and best. I hope you all will join us; it's going to be (sic)."

The Ozzfest Meets Knotfest weekend will kick off on Friday, November 3 for all ticketed campers.
