OZZY OSBOURNE On OZZFEST: 'I Wanna Bring In The New Year With A Big Bang'

A short video of Ozzy Osbourne discussing the upcoming Ozzfest New Year's Eve celebration can be seen below.

Ozzfest has expanded its headlining bill of some of the greatest names in rock to include a second (outdoor) stage. Concert-goers will now have 10 hours of entertainment before they ring in the New Year.

Set for Monday, December 31 at the Forum in Los Angeles, Ozzfest will kick off with live music at 2:30 p.m. with sets from ZAKK SABBATH, DEVILDRIVER and WEDNESDAY 13 on the outdoor stage. Early concert-goers will also get to sip cocktails while also enjoying offerings from a variety of food trucks which will be set-up throughout the outdoor performance area, all available for purchase. Food choices include Mess Hall Canteen, Burger Monster, The Viking Truck, The Coconut Truck, Kala Truck, Broken Rice and Drizzle Truck, plus a booth from the legendary Trejo's Tacos.

At 6:00 p.m, everything shifts indoors at the Forum where Ozzfest alumni Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson and Jonathan Davis (of KORN) and BODY COUNT featuring Ice-T (in their Ozzfest debut) will take the stage. The night will conclude with a performance from festival namesake Ozzy Osbourne, who will count down to the new year.

Ozzfest started more than 20 years ago and was the first national music festival of its kind dedicated to hard rock music.

Ozzfest has not been a traveling festival in the U.S. since 2007's "free" edition. The show morphed into a one-off event in Dallas in 2008, took 2009 off and played just six cities in 2010.

Over 17,000 concert-goers were in attendance for last year's all-day Ozzfest, which was headlined by OZZY OSBOURNE, while ROB ZOMBIE closed out the next day's Knotfest bill.

2017 was the second year Ozzy's Ozzfest had merged with SLIPKNOT's Knotfest for a two-day heavy metal juggernaut.
