Band Photo: Iron Maiden (?)

Ozzfest.com, has added two "mystery act" slots to their "Bands" page — one on the main stage and one on the second stage. The main-stage slot is widely expected to be filled by VELVET REVOLVER (who will reportedly join the tour on August 16 in West Valley City, UT before taking over IRON MAIDEN's slot beginning on August 23 in Albuquerque, NM), while there is no word yet on who will fill the second-stage "mystery" slot.

Hell f***in ya Children of Bodom on the main stage that would kick ass

I like that Black Sabbath/ Iron Maiden r on the bill but Mudvayne is just ok and BLS were on ozzfest last year. it would have been great to see Anthrax and Megadeth to.
Heres how i think ozzfest should look
Black Sabbath
Iron Maiden
Anthrax
Megadeth
Children of Bodom
Shadows Fall

The second stage has some killer bands but i dont think there headling like Arch Enemy, Mastodon, In Flames
i would like to of seen
Machine Head
Mudvayne
American Head Charge

also maby DOPE should be added to Ozzfest since they gota new Cd coming out
and why the hell is a dozen furies on the bill, WOW the won some stupid f***in reality show there r a ton of undiscovered bands bettter than them that could be at ozfest instead

i think that shadows fall is overrated. all that remains is much better and deserves to be at ozzfest. they are playing sounds of the underground though, which is cool.

i also agree that BLS doesnt need to be there.

i can give SOME guesses as to who it'll be .... obviously the "from august 23rd to sepetember 4th" tag under the main stage slot means it IS VR who have been annouced already in those dates.

the second stage i wanna say Danzig but, it's VERY unlikely .... Agnostic Front seems strong .... maybe its some wild card like Behemoth or something only time will tell.

Bodom would be pretty f***in sweet. I hope they're on one of the slots. Id really f***ing like to see Fear Factory on there as well. And I think the tour could do without Velvet Revolver.

This lineup is pretty good. I love TriVium, Bury your Dead, Rob Zombie, Sabbath, Maiden, Mudvayne, Mastodon, BLS, and In Flames. The best of all is Shadows Fall is one of my favorite bands EVER. They make this tour one of the best. But what the f*** happened to SLAYER!?! I want Slayer on main stage like usual. Same for LoG, and hatebreed. This tour would be the best one in history if CoB would be there. They're my fav band of all time! but shadows fall and maiden make up for all the gay sh** on this tour. Well im goin anyway so it doesnt matter. LONG LIVE CoB MOTHER f***ERS!!!
