Ozzfest Japan to Debut May 2013

OZZFEST JAPAN SET FOR MAY 11-12, 2013
AT MKUHARI MESSE

Sharon Osbourne, in partnership with Japanese promoter Hayashi International Promotion (H.I.P.), has confirmed the first-ever Ozzfest Japan. The two-day festival will debut Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12, 2013 at the Makuhari Messe arena just outside of Tokyo and will feature headlining performances from Black Sabbath--featuring Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Tony Iommi--and Slipknot.

"We are excited for the opportunity to bring Ozzfest to Japan for the first time ever,” says Sharon Osbourne. “We’ve got the perfect combination of Western and Japanese bands. Ozzfest is also thrilled to be presenting Black Sabbath’s first-ever performance in Japan.”

The inaugural Ozzfest Japan line-up will be co-headlined by Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum rockers Slipknot, who last performed in Japan in 2008. The remaining acts on the festival’s lineup will be revealed later this year, and according to organizers it will feature performances from a dynamic mix of international and domestic bands with the goal of establishing Ozzfest Japan as the leader in the Japanese rock festival market.
