The Pulse Of Radio reports: Will there be an Ozzfest in 2011? The venerable heavy rock and metal festival, started in 1997 by Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, has gone through a number of changes over the last few years as a result of economic woes and more competition from events like the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem and Uproar festivals. Now for the second time in four years, it's not clear whether Ozzfest will take place at all this summer. No bands have been confirmed, no dates have been set, and there has not even been word on any kind of announcement about either. Vulgar Display Of Blog reported that the band page at Ozzfest.com is now blank, although it stated until recently "Ozzfest 2011 Bands Coming Soon". A post in the site's fan forums asking fans to suggest bands has also been taken down. Last year's Ozzfest was a short, six-date run that featured Ozzy, Mtley Cre, Halford, Devildriver and Nonpoint. There was no Ozzfest in 2009, while the 2008 edition was a one-day "destination" event in Dallas, Texas, starring Ozzy, Metallica, Apocalyptica, Korn's Jonathan Davis and more. Even with a still-sluggish economy, the summer festival schedule is packed with events and tours like Mayhem, Uproar, Lollapalooza, the Mtley Cre/Poison and Rob Zombie/Slayer double bills, and others. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.
