Ozzfest has always had late announcements, and the only reason this crap comes up every single year is because Mayhem announces everything 6 months in advance.

That's a legitimate point, but in the past, you always knew that we were not only guaranteed an ozzfest, but we were guaranteed an ozzfest with 20-30 dates starting from the first week of july till the last week in august or first week in september.  Since 2008, you really can't take it for granted that there's even gonna be one at all.  So the curiosity and need for info is all the more legitimate.  The mayhemfest and every other summer festival just makes ozzfest look even worse than before with their little secrets and mysteries.  Ozzfest was also sort of the only game in town when it came to metalfests, but not anymore which is why their bullshit doesn't fly like it used to.  Ofcourse people were always pissed about the late info, but I"m just saying since 2008, people want to know at least if there's gonna be a fest at all.

Great marketing ploy to build up the tension, interest and excitement (and frustration and annoyance) I guess?


Either that or they're so fucking disorganized that they couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery Smiley

You're talking all wrong.
It's the wrong tone.

 You`re talking about my Ozzfest in the wrong tone.......   
                   
Do it again, I'll stab you

On the bright side however once he has stabbed you, he'll throw you in an ambulance, patch you up and give you some great drugs to dull the pain

Yeah but I always pay top dollar and I go to more than one show.  So that should earn me a lighter stabbing.  Maybe with a plastic fork instead of a soldering iron

Only 1 more month till an announcement.  Patience guys.  What'd you expect them to make an announcement when they only have 98% of all the info?   Cheesy

When I think about it, Ozzfest probably WILL happen.  In 2009 when they cancelled it they made the announcement in January.  Though with Ozzy doin' 2 European festivals I'm sure it'll be only a handful of US shows and a few European shows.

Yeah that's true, but in '08 they waited till mid May to tell us it was just one show so I would not put it past them to pull a "got you suckers again!  Only one show in Alaska this year.   Ozzy needs a break!"
