For the first time since its 1996 debut, Ozzfest—the annual musical event that celebrates hard rock and heavy metal—has created a special one-night-only New Year’s Eve celebration to ring in 2019.
Set for Monday, Dec. 31, at The Forum in Los Angeles, the event will feature headliner Ozzy Osbourne, plus Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson and Jonathan Davis (of Korn), along with the Ozzfest debut of Body Count featuring Ice-T. The New Year’s Eve party will include an outdoor stage, along with other holiday festivities, details of which will be announced in the coming weeks. The evening will conclude with Osbourne onstage counting down to the new year.
“I asked Sharon what we’re doing this New Year’s Eve, and she said ‘WE’RE DOING FUCK ALL!” Ozzy said. “So I thought, ‘We didn’t do Ozzfest in 2018, so let’s do a New Year’s Eve Ozzfest.'”
“What better way to celebrate New Year’s Eve than with some of the greatest performers in this genre and our longtime friends Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Jonathan Davis and Ice T,” Sharon Osbourne said.
Tickets for the Live Nation-produced Ozzfest 2018 will go on sale at 10 a.m. PT Friday, Oct. 26, here. Ticket prices range from $49.50 for general admission to $179.50 for a reserved seat. VIP packages also are available, details of which can be found at www.ozzfest.com.
