Every October for the past ten years, there is a two-day heavy metal music festival in the Tokyo area called “Loudpark“.
This year it is scheduled for 2015 October 10th (Sat) and October 11th (Sun).
Some of the major bands that are billed to play are: Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. Three of the “Big Four“!
And then the following month, there will be another big heavy metal festival in the Tokyo area!
OzzFest Japan is scheduled for 2015 November 21st (Sat) and November 22nd!
Unlike Loudpark, OzzFest doesn’t have a long history in Japan. This will only be the second OzzFest in this country so far.
I saw Black Sabbath, among other bands, at OzzFest Japan 2013…and they were initially billed to headline OzzFest Japan 2015, but it’s been changed for whatever reason…Ozzy will still be playing with his solo band instead.
The main acts of OzzFest Japan 2015 will be: Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society, KoRn Bullet For My Valentine, and Evanscence.
