Is Ozzfest Teasing Marilyn Manson, Goatwhore, Superjoint, and Others?

  • Axl Rosenberg

Reader Josh M. has pointed out to us that there’s been a flurry of activity on Ozzfest’s official Instagram page as of late — specifically, a bunch of photos of bands that have played the fest in past years:

Naturally, this has led some to believe Ozzfest is hinting at the line-up for this year’s Ozzfest Meets Knotfest.

Which certainly seems plausible! Some version of every act pictured above is still active. And, as Vince pointed out to me, the last time an Ozzfest social media account posted what appeared to be a tease (in that instance, for the announcement of the event itself), that’s exactly what it turned out to be.

In any case, Ozzfest Meets Knotfest’s organizers have promised to make a big announcement on July 10. Presumably, said announcement will include the line-up and dates for the event. Stay tuned…
