  OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST LINE-UP IS HERE
11th July 2017



ozzfest

The line-up for this year's Ozzfest Meets Knotfest is now here and Ozzy, Rob Zombie, Deftones, Marilyn Manson, Prophets Of Rage and Stone Sour are the main features of the festival that will take place in California on November 4th and 5th.

Ozzfest Meets Knotfest takes place at the Glen Helen Amphitheater And Festival Grounds in San Bernardino with Ozzfest running on Saturday 4th November and Knotfest taking over on Sunday 5th November.

The Ozzfest main stage will be headlined by Ozzy Osbourne with Prophets Of Rage, Deftones, Children Of Bodom and Orange Goblin also performing while the Knotfest main stage will be headlined by Rob Zombie with Marilyn Manson, Stone Sour, Eighteen Visions and Prayers also playing on the day.

Ozzy said:

"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."

Sharon Osbourne added:

"Ozzfest Meets Knotfest is coming back for another round. Last year we had over 75,000 people attend and we have another great line-up this year with Ozzy's first solo show in LA in more than six years. This is not just another show. It's Ozzfest Meets Knotfest and this year's event means the world to me as we'll be amongst friends like Prophets Of Rage, Rob Zombie, Deftones, Marilyn Manson and Stone Sour. It's going to be another amazing weekend."

Corey Taylor had previously stated that Slipknot would not headline Knotfest this year but revealed he would take to the stage with Stone Sour instead.

"Knotfest was never supposed to be exclusively about Slipknot. It was always about the things that fuelled 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 sick."

Slipknot's Shawn 'Clown' Crahan added:

"It's that incredible time again where Ozzfest and Knotfest meet up to bring all music fans together for two days of rock'n'roll. Let's not forget the beautiful culture we are involved in and the history that is being written. Join the true passion of our concepts. I'll see you there. Stay sick."

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
