Ozzy Osbourne to headline Download Festival 2018
Ozzy Osbourne will headline the 2018 Download Festival.
The metal icon, who is touring as a solo artist again after the completion of Black Sabbath's final tour, will headline the festival for the first time as a solo artist.
The festival will take place from June 8th to June 10th in 2018, with Osbourne closing the festival on June 10th. Two more headliners for the event will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
Speaking about the booking, festival organiser Andy Copping said: "We’re unbelievably excited to have Ozzy as one of the headliners next year. Already hailing from the midlands, Ozzy Osbourne is no stranger to Download, and after Black Sabbath closed the festival in 2016, how could I not ask The Prince of Darkness to come back all on his own? The Download family are, without a shadow of a doubt, in for a treat.”
