OzzFest promises music and mayhem with another beastly lineup

By Sarah Quelland

THIS YEAR'S OZZFEST may well be the biggest show of the summer with an epic lineup that has left many a metal fan salivating since it was first announced. The main stage acts alone are reason enough to get excited, with the legendary Black Sabbath headlining and Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, Papa Roach, Linkin Park, Disturbed, Crazytown and Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society tearing it up. The festival has been organized differently this year, so fans won't have to miss a minute of the main stage action to catch the smaller bands on the second stages. Split between the Levi Stage and the Second Stage, other bands include Otep, Beautiful Creatures, American Head Charge, Pure Rubbish, Systematic, Hatebreed, Nonpoint, Drowning Pool, Godhead, Taproot, Union Underground and Mudvayne. OzzFest storms into Shoreline Amphitheatre tomorrow (June 29) with bands scheduled to start at 11am. Tickets are $43.75 general or $73.75 reserved and available through Ticketmaster.

The show kicks off at noon, and tickets are $28 the day of the show. There's an all-ages Warped Tour after-party at the Pound with Stunt Monkey, Luckie Strike, Vegas DeMilo and Downside.
