Ozzfest Files Suit Against OZY Fest

According to TMZ, Ozzfest organizers are suing the OZY Fest, which took place in Central Park in New York City, NY back in July. The lawsuit says organizers originally sent the OZY Fest a cease and desist letter, due to the event’s name and logo being too similar to Ozzfest, leading to some confusion. They apparently ignored the letter claiming OZY Fest was a “media-focused event”, rather than a concert. Now, Ozzfest is trying to stop the name from being used again, and is also seeking profits from that July festival.

Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, Prophets Of Rage, Marilyn Manson, Etc. Set For 2017 Ozzfest Meets Knotfest

The lineup has been revealed for the 2017 Ozzfest Meets Knotfest. The event will take place at the Glen Helen Amphitheater & Festival Grounds on November 4-5, with Ozzfest set for day one and Knotfest set for day two.

Sharon Osbourne said the following:

“’Ozzfest Meets Knotfest‘ is coming back for another round. Last year we had over 75,000 people attend and we have another great lineup this year with Ozzy’s first solo show in L.A. in more than six years. This is not just another show…it’s ‘Ozzfest Meets Knotfest‘! And this year’s event means the world to me as we’ll be amongst friends like Prophets of Rage, Rob Zombie, Deftones, Marilyn Manson and Stone Sour…it’s going to be another amazing weekend.”

Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) added:

“‘Knotfest‘ was never supposed to be exclusively about Slipknot. It was always about the things that fueled the spirit of Slipknot: music, art, passion, insanity, and the tribes that give it power. So it would make sense for Knotfest to carry on these ideas, even without Slipknot.

Because these things are the gasoline of creativity, and there’s plenty to go around, with plenty of great bands, acts and things to see. Teaming up again with Ozzfest means another weekend of the biggest, baddest, loudest and best. I hope you all will join us; it’s going to be (sic).”

Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan also commented:

“It’s that incredible time again where Ozzfest and Knotfest meet up to bring all music fans together for two days of Rock and Roll. Let’s not forget the beautiful culture we are involved in and the history that is being written. Join the true passion of our concepts. I’ll see you there. Stay (sic).”
