Ozzfest Meets Knotfest for Biggest Metal Festival in North America

When forces collide things can get a little wild.

Not only is this year the 21st anniversary of Ozzfest, it also happens to be the year Ozzfest and Knotfest meet at the same place on same weekend, resulting in two days of metal awesomeness.

Ozzfest will be taking place on Saturday, November 4, while Knotfest will be taking over the Glen Helen Amphitheater and Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, Calif., on Sunday, November 5.

There will also be a special pre-fest kickoff on Friday, November 3, for all ticketed campers, guaranteeing a packed weekend.

Tickets go on sale Friday, July 14 at 10:00 a.m. (PT), with prices varying from $29.00 for a single day GA lawn ticket to $239.00 for two-day GA pit passes. VIP passes are also available at varying prices.

The lineups for both festivals are packed and guaranteed to give festival attendees an amazing experience, not to mention some bragging rights.

“Last year’s show with Black Sabbath was just incredible and I’m thrilled to be coming back this year with Zakk, Tommy, Blasko and Adam to headline the 21st anniversary of Ozzfest,” said Ozzy Osbourne, set to take the main stage Saturday at Ozzfest.

“Knotfest was never supposed to be exclusively about Slipknot. 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,” said Corey Taylor, the lead singer of popular heavy metal band 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).”

Metal fans won’t want to miss an experience with this, and with acts such as Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson and so many more, this is one weekend that truly won’t be forgotten anytime soon.
