Since 1996, OZZFest has been a
virtual breeding ground for rising bands and has proven to be the
blueprint for all new metal festivals. The festival has been
instrumental in igniting the careers of platinum-selling artists like
System of a Down, Disturbed, Linkin Park, Incubus, Slipknot, Queens of
the Stone Age, Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold, Mudvayne, Lamb of God,
Killswitch Engage and Lacuna Coil, among others. It was cited as “one of
rock’s biggest juggernauts” in the cover feature of Sunday’s New
York Times‘ “Arts & Leisure” section (6/25/06).
