OzzKnot Is A Reality – Press Conference Announcement Hollywood, CA 5-12-16

The cat is out of the bag, Ozzy Osbourne and Corey Taylor announced at a press conference in Hollywood, CA on May 12th that their respective music festivals, Ozzfest and Knotfest, will be coming together to form one big weekend-long event. The festival will take place at the San Bernardino San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds on Saturday, September 24th and Sunday, September 25th. An announcement that been swirling as rumors for a few months now, it is finally a reality and fans can rejoice.

Also present at the conference were members of bands who will be performing at the event, including David Draiman of Disturbed, Scott Ian of Anthrax, Eddie Hermida of Suicide Silence, and Jill Janus of Huntress. When asked how this pairing came about, Taylor said, “This was something that we started talking about a few months ago, and it was something we were hoping we could do for a couple of different reasons. One, obviously Slipknot owes a huge debt to Ozzfest and to Black Sabbath, and for us, building our own festival, it just made sense if we could put this together and make the last North American show absolutely monumental… I am very, very, very proud.” (Note that it is unclear whether this will be the last North American show Black Sabbath plays. Conflicting things were said by various members of the band). In addition, when asked what fans should expect from the event, Ozzy answered simply, “One crazy weekend.
