Only days after saying he feared he might never perform again, the star confirms his headlining status foi this year's event...

Ozzy Osbourne and JUDAS PRIEST have been confirmed as the headliners for this year’s OZZFEST.

Slipknot, [a][/a], Dimmu Borgir, Superjoint Ritual, and Black Label Society, will also play at the metal event, now in its ninth year.

The news comes just days after Ozzy feared he would not be able to perform again after a quad bike accident left him with a metal plate in his shoulder. However, wife and festival founder Sharon says he will play. “The music starts at 9:30 a.m. and doesn’t stop until Ozzy leaves the stage at 11:00 p.m.,” she explained. “Seeing Ozzy onstage is a better ride than any rollercoaster.”

Further line-up announcements will be made shortly. Tickets for the event will be available first on [url=]ozzfest.com.
