SiriusXM to Host Virtual “The Spirit of Ozzfest Weekend” Event

Posted by on July 1, 2020



Ozzfest is going virtual. 

SiriusXM’s Ozzy’s Boneyard (channel 38) will be hosting a virtual “The Spirit of Ozzfest Weekend.” Premiering Friday, July 3 at 5PM ET with repeat airings through July 6, Jack Osbourne and Luc Carl will be bringing metal fans live performances, as well as exclusive stories, from Ozzfests past. 

The full line-up includes sets from Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Tool, Slipknot, Metallica, Pantera, Megadeth, Hatebreed, Iron Maiden, System of a Down, Judas Priest, Slayer, Motorhead, Down, Black Label Society and Sepultura.

Fans who miss the premiere on Friday will be able to catch it all weekend long with repeat airings July 4 at 12AM, 12PM and 7PM, July 5 at 2AM, 10AM and 5PM and July 6 at 8AM.

Started in 1996, Ozzfest ran annually through 2008 with various iterations of the festival, including Ozzfest Japan and Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, between 2010 and 2018.

Osbourne released his latest solo album, Ordinary Man, in February 2020. After a myriad of issues, Osbourne had to cancel the previously rescheduled North American leg of his “No More Tours 2” tour in order to receive treatment for Parkinson’s Disease in Switzerland. That trip was also cancelled, this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. European “No More Tours 2” dates are currently slated to take place starting October 23 in Newcastle, UK.

Ozzy’s Boneyard is one of 100+ SiriusXM channels currently available to stream for free. Inactive car radios and streaming devices can listen without signing up now through July 6.
