Tour promoter LIVE NATION and OZZY & SHARON OSBOURNE have announced that OZZFEST 2007 will let fans in for free. The touring rock festival is gearing up for its 12th year, dubbed FREEFEST. The show will kick off at LOS ANGELES on JULY 7.
"For the last few years," said SHARON OSBOURNE, "ticket prices have steadily climbed as artists demand more and more money for summer tours. We certainly want everybody to make money; however, we also want the kids to be able to afford to come out and have an incredible experience. If we continued with the traditional touring festival model, we would have no choice but to raise ticket prices again this year."
Its not as easy as just showing up, though. To gain entry to the festival, fans will be directed to Ozzfest.com or livenation.com, where they will find links to participating sponsors sites where tickets can actually be acquired.
