Metallica's OZZFest debut represents one of the few shows that the worldwide superstars will be playing in North America this year. Ozzy Osbourne himself will be making his only U.S. concert appearance through the end of 2008 at the wildly popular event which bears his name, marking the transformation of the pioneering festival he founded into a one-day extravaganza spanning three stages of top metal and hard rock acts.
Sponsored by Affliction Clothing, this year's OZZFest in the hard music-loving state of Texas will feature non-stop talent on three stages–the Ozzfest Main Stage, the Jagermeister Second Stage and the Monster Energy Texas Stage–as well as reliably twisted side attractions. The bill will also feature some of the hardest rocking bands–many of whom have been a part of the OZZFest family and who will return to the OZZFest stage in support of a festival which has opened the door for so many of today's hard rock and metal bands.
The full main stage lineup will spotlight performances by Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Hellyeah, Jonathan Davis (Korn), Cavalera Conspiracy, Shadows Fall, Apocalyptica and In This Moment. Also scheduled on the main stage is a special all-star tribute to fallen Pantera guitarist and Texas native "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott. Acts on The Jagermeister Second Stage include Sevendust, Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. The Monster Energy Texas Stage–"an homage to the many great metal bands that come from Texas," says Sharon Osbourne–will feature The Sword, Drowning Pool, Rigor Mortis, Within Chaos and The Destro.

Since 1996, OZZFest has been a virtual breeding ground for rising bands. The festival has been instrumental in igniting the careers of platinum-selling artists like System of a Down, Disturbed, Linkin Park, Incubus, Slipknot, Queens of the Stone Age, Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold, Mudvayne, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage and Lacuna Coil, among others. It was cited as "one of rock's biggest juggernauts" in the cover feature of Sunday's New York Times' "Arts & Leisure" section (6/25/06).
