Ozzy Osbourne, Avenged Sevenfold + Slayer to Headline Rock USA Festival
The festival announcements keep piling in! The latest to be announced is the Rock USA fest, which will be held in Oshkosh, Wis. between July 13 and 15 at Ford Festival Park. It’s going to be a heavy weekend with the Prince of Darkness — Ozzy Osbourne — joining Avenged Sevenfold and the mighty Slayer as this year’s headliners.
“Last year was a pivotal point in the history of this festival,” said Rock USA promoter Derek Liebhauser (via Blabbermouth). “We made some big decisions to enhance the overall festival experience for our fan. The response has been overwhelming for us.” Fans should be overwhelmed again with another packed lineup also featuring, Korn, Volbeat, Stone Sour, Megadeth, Lamb Of God, The Pretty Reckless, Anthrax, Hellyeah, Falling In Reverse, Candlebox, We Came As Romans, Avatar, Suicide Silence, Whitechapel, Crobot, Kyng, Citizen Zero, Through Fire, Miss May I, Code Orange, Bobaflex and more.
Set on 350 acres of land, fans will have plenty of room to explore the grounds. In addition to the slew of top flight rock and metal acts, the fest has partnered with Southern Hospitality Concessions to bring a new food and beverage experience. “I think our fans are going to be really excited about this change with gourmet food, local flare, craft beers, unique cocktails, and so on,” commented Liebhauser. “Couple this with our lineup and festival experience and you have a truly unique event.”
Attendees will also have the option to camp on the grounds of Ford Festival Park. VIP packages and other options are also available at the Rock USA website. Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 3PM and a post from the fest indicates the sale will only be open for 72 hours.
