Blabbermouth is reporting that "informed sources" (read: still unconfirmed) tell them that BLACK SABBATH and IRON MAIDEN will headline the 10th anniversary edition of Ozzfest. In addition, ANTHRAX's "Among the Living" lineup — featuring vocalist Joey Belladonna, guitarist Dan Spitz and bassist Frank Bello — is said to have secured a slot on the main stage at the festival, which is expected to kick off in mid-July.
According to unconfirmed reports, the Ozzfest 2005 shows will start later than the previous 9:00 a.m. kick-off time and will include more non-rotating slots on the second stage.
Prior to headlining the 2005 edition of Ozzfest, BLACK SABBATH will embark on a short European tour, which will include an appearance at the U.K.'s Download festival (where they will headline the "Ozzfest" day on June 11).
No further mention was made of Megadeth who are also highly rumored to play the main stage this year.
