as everyone probably know, Ozzfest will be free this year. Now most people are of coarse going to think this is a great thing. And when you first look at it it seems like it is. But when you think about it, it might not be. Money is the motivation for almost everything. I don't know what kind of bands they are going to be able to get to play,
with the money they are getting from sponsors. I will go no matter what, i do every year. But it isn't worth being free if no one good is playing.

I think alot of good bands will go because if they don't they will be made out to look really bad and as if they only play for money

Atleast you wont be wasting your money, just wasting your time.

From a business perspective, playing just one free show is good PR.

From a musical perspective, if the artists are assholes enough to not play because of money issues, then they suck anyways.

But think of the advertisements its gonna be run off
people will complain its way to corporate now

but anyway the shennanigans last year with maiden etc was really stupid, and given it another blow to the bottom of the festival pile as to be honest, its not exactly the worlds most respected is it?

Another bad thing is tickets being taken from the people that always go (me) by kids who are just going because it's free and "the cool thing" to do that day

only if it's your sister, and that's not how you spell pedophile.

remember that there's merchandise and food sales... these bands aren't goin to LOSE money, they're just gonna charge as much as they need to for food and merch to break even. Expect high prices for food and shirts.

if you really think about it, ozzfest isjust a way for small bands to get known...

and why wouldn't they do it?
