Ozzfest has been dubbed FreeFest after an announcement yesterday.
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne yesterday announced that the Ozzfest tour in the States would be free of charge. Sponsors will be underwriting the cost of the festival which takes place this summer. Sharon said of the move:
“We’re reaching the same point we did years ago when kids no longer wanted to pay for overpriced CDs. As a result, they found alternative ways of getting music. That’s what’s happening with summer touring in this country, it’s out-pricing itself.”
