MAJOR OZZFEST U.K. 2002 ANNOUNCEMENT

This year the best hard rock festival in the world OZZFEST
comes to the UK and rightly the event returns to the
spiritual home of rock at Donington Park on Saturday 25th
May.

After the huge success of last year's OZZFEST and the sold
out US leg, the UK line up this year promises to be bigger,
better and ear-bleedingly louder than ever before with a
total of 26 bands on the bill on two main outdoor stages
and one indoor arena.

Heading the bill will be the incomparable OZZY
OSBOURNE. Also, just confirmed are the outstanding
TOOL, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, SLAYER and CRADLE OF
FILTH with many many more soon to be announced.
As with last year's event, OZZFEST will be sponsored by
Kerrang! - the world's biggest-selling weekly music
magazine. Kerrang! will also support the event on its
24-hour television channel, Kerrang! TV (channels 454 and
332 on Sky Digital and Telewest respectively), through its
website (http://www.kerrang.com) and through its weekly
club nights.

And this year, for the very first time BBC Radio 1 will be
broadcasting live from the OZZFEST site bringing listeners
all the best music from the festival. The station will be
shifting its schedule and broadcasting a very special
edition of the Radio 1 Rock show presented by Mary Anne
Hobbs which will come from Donington Park. The show
will go out on Radio 1 on Saturday 25th May 9pm -
Midnight.

In another exciting development, Radio 1 and Kerrang!
Magazine will be joining forces to present a brand new
