Ozzfest Coming to New York for Special One-Off Festival in 2018?
Based on that, I highly doubt the Ozzman would be using his Twitter account for simple market research purposes (there’s also, like, reams and reams of actual data for that), so I’d put good faith in his latest tweet that a one-off Ozzfest event is being planned for the New York area at some point in the near future:

Last year’s Ozzfest Meets Knotfest dropped in early June and the event ended up being hosted in early November. If that same timeline applies, we’ll end up with an Ozzfest here in (or near) NYC in mid-November, which would preclude hosting it outside. An indoors Ozzfest wouldn’t be a first — Japanese Ozzfests have been hosted inside — but it certainly wouldn’t have that patented Ozzfest feel to it. That said, just because last year’s announcement-to-event timeline took five months doesn’t mean this year’s would; perhaps they could pull this thing off in September and still host it outdoors.
We’ll keep you updated!
