'Ozzfest' Day Confirmed For England's DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL

OZZY OSBOURNE's official web site has confirmed reports that this year's installment of England's Download Festival will include an Ozzfest day on Saturday, June 11, with Ozzy (and presumably Sharon) selecting the groups who will perform. Names in the rumor mill for Ozzfest day include VELVET REVOLVER, MÖTLEY CRÜE, MARILYN MANSON, GREEN DAY, and BLACK SABBATH.

SYSTEM OF A DOWN looks set to play the Sunday (June 12) portion of the show, along with other still-to-be-named hard rock and metal acts.

This year's Download Festival is likely to be expanded to a three-day event (June 10-12). The 2005 Download Festival will once again take place at Donington Park, Derbyshire, England, which can hold 60,000 concertgoers. Last year's event featured METALLICA, SLIPKNOT and SLAYER.
