The lineup and other details of the 2017 Ozzfest Meets Knotfest have been announced. Ozzfest will take place Saturday, November 4, and Knotfest on Sunday, November 5. Both shows will be held at Glen Helen Amphitheater And Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, Calif. A special pre-fest kickoff is set for Friday, November 3 for all ticketed campers.

A Live Nation presale begins Thursday, July 13 at 10 a.m. local time here. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 14 at ozzfest.com and knotfest.com. Early ticket prices range from $29.00 for a single day GA lawn ticket to $239.00 for two-day GA pit passes; a variety of VIP packages are also available for each day.

Said Ozzy Osbourne: “Last year’s show with Black Sabbath was just incredible and I’m thrilled to be coming back this year with Zakk, Tommy, Blasko and Adam to headline the 21st anniversary of Ozzfest.”

Said Slipknot’s M Shawn Crahan: “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).”

Sharon Osbourne: “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 of Slipknot 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).”
