Ozzfest Japan comes to you via an alliance between Ozzy Osbourne’s better half and Japanese promoter Hayashi International Promotion (H.I.P.).
While promising it will announce more lineup details before year’s end, the Sharon Osbourne camp sez the music will feature “a dynamic mix of international and domestic bands with the goal of establishing Ozzfest Japan as the leader in the Japanese rock festival market.”
In other words, you folks at Sonic and Mt. Fuji take notice. You’ve been warned.
“We are thrilled to open a new chapter for this legendary festival in Japan,” H.I.P. President Massy Hayashi said. “I think it will be the perfect chance to bring together the very best international rock music and also give us a chance to show how far Japanese rock has come in recent years.”
