I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and let's do it all again next year!!!"

Ozzfest 2008 Deemed A Success By Organizers

Billboard.com reports: Ozzfest 2008, with Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne as headliners, grossed nearly $3.5 million and drew close to 30,000 people to Dallas' Pizza Hut Park, according to producers Sharon Osbourne and AEG Live.

Sponsored by Affliction Clothing, this year's Ozzfest marked the return of the 13-year-old hard music brand after a free run at amphitheaters last year. This year's one-off event did "fantastically well," Sharon Osbourne told Billboard.com. "The one thing is you want for the kids to go away and keep talking about what a great show it was, and that's what they're doing."

In addition to Metallica and Osbourne, mainstage acts were Serj Tankian, Hellyeah, Johnathan Davis, Cavalera Conspiracy, Shadows Fall, Apocalyptica, and In This Moment. The second stage featured Sevendust, Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. On the third stage were the Sword, Drowning Pool, Rigor Mortis, Within Chaos, The Destro and "battle of the bands" winners Debris and Black Tooth.

Osbourne says plans are for Ozzfest to return to Dallas again next summer, likely as a two-day festival, and other cities are also being considered. "Ozzfest ain't going anywhere," she says. "We do try and shake things up and experiment. We're not the old donkey that plods on doing the same sh*t."

Drowning Pool Frontman Recaps Ozzfest

Drowning Pool frontman Ryan McCombs has issued his own recap of this past weekend's, Ozzfest event via Facebook. You can read it below:

"Trying to write this on my phone with 1 1/2 thumbs isn't the easiest thing in the world. I catch myself speeding right along just to find out that the old nub has hit about 101 wrong letters so please look past any completely fuct up words. The real fun thing for u is that I can't spell worth a shit in the first place. For anyone that usually reads my brain droppings from time to time, the spelling thing isn't news.

"Yesterday was Ozzfest in Big D and I want to thank everyone that came to the Texas stage and tore it up with us. We had a blast. A hot god damn blast but a blast just the same. I think one of my personal highs of the show was before we even took the stage. The gentleman that announced us, I'm guessing a bit clouded, went into the presentation. As he did he started talking about Dez and Devil Driver. Didn't think much about it until I realized he was a bit confused as he started trying to get the crowd to chant "Devil Driver". I stood back stage thinking "oh shit, what the fuck." But then it happened. The crowd started chanting back to him "Drowning Pool". I just had to start laughing. Felt good to know the people out there that allow us to do what we do knew exactly who was coming up next and was there @ that moment to see us. THANK YOU!!!

"Ya'all kicked ass and continued to throughout our set. Talking to all our friends in the other bands through the night everyone was blown away by the crowd all day long. Heard it was 102 degrees out but it felt about 120. But everyone there in the crowd brought it all day long.
I got to catch Ozzy's set and as always he, Mike and Zakk were balls on. I didn't stick around to watch Metallica as my attention span is a bit shorter due in part to a clearer state of mind that I'm trying out but from the bus area they sounded their always slamming selves.
In Fayettville Arkansas tonight which is always a good time.

"Well I won't bore your asses with any more, besides my thumb and nub are tired. So in closing, thanx again to all you crazy fuckers that give us a job to do and a big god damn kudos to you completely insane peeps that tore it up @ Ozzfest.

Love
Peace
And Dime baby.
I'm out bitches
Ryan"
