pssible by the end of the day. For 10 years, Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharron have
broghtmai-stge ame aswell as up-and-coming metal acts to the masses on a sum-

the overy anxious second stage acts. Ozzfest virgins were given a chance to prove their
worth, and repeat acts proved they still deserved their time slot. Fans cheered, bodies flew
into each other in the mosh-pits, and crowd surfers floated their way toward their idols as
the temperature rose and rain showers began to descend upon the sweat-soaked masses.
As the sun began to set, so did the crowd, as the main stage acts brought the festival to a
close. Screams were exchanged for the awe-inspiring vocal ranges of Bruce Dickenson
and Ozzy Osbourne. This was a festival for everyone. From the hot-topic infused teens
to the middle-age rocker dads, this tour brought smiles to all and families together for a A E:igreo mao ero
day of musical euphoria. ative The Black Dahlia Murder put in a
west-drenched performance for his local
