Shortly after Sharon Osbourne made the big announcement about this year’s Ozzfest – it’s free – she followed it up with another big announcement: Jägermeister will sponsor the entire second stage.

Known as rock’s biggest juggernaut, Ozzfest is now turning to sponsors to provide added support for the festival’s new incarnation as a “FREEfest,” and Jägermeister is taking full advantage of the opportunity.

A longtime sponsor of Ozzfest, Jägermeister will roll out its own state of the art mobile stage for the summer’s biggest heavy metal festival. All second stage acts will play on the Jägermeister stage, a fully self-contained stage hauled cross country by a custom Showhauler toter home, complete with a full audio sound system provided by JVC Mobile and amped by one whopping generator. The stage measures 34’ long, 16’ deep, and 20’ high. The entire PA system, provided by Peavey Electronics and Schecter Guitars, will be hung for optimum sound. The stage will include state-of-the-art lighting by Chauvet. “Jägermeister has been kicking around this idea for a long time. The fact that we’ve spent a year designing and building this stage proves our dedication to music,” says Rick Zeiler, Director of Marketing and Brand Development for Jägermeister. “We can’t wait to showcase it at Ozzfest.”

“Jägermeister has been part of the Ozzfest family for the last eight years,” says Sharon Osbourne. “This year they are kind enough to be supplying Ozzfest ’07 with their revolutionary mobile stage. Jägermeister’s stage and their continued support are helping to make our FREE Ozzfest tour concept a reality.”

“We are incredibly jazzed that Jägermeister is bringing their innovative and state-of-the-art mobile stage on this history-making tour,” says Jane Holman, Vice President of Touring for Live Nation, Ozzfest’s organizer. “Jäger has been a great supporter of Ozzfest and the metal genre for years, and we couldn’t be happier to be able to help them showcase their new baby.”

Bands will play the Jägermeister stage every day from 1-7 p.m. In addition to Ozzfest being free, this year will also see the return of Ozzy Osbourne to the main stage as headliner. He’ll be unleashing new songs from his forthcoming album. It’s going to be a groundbreaking show, and Jägermeister will be there every thundering step of the way. Lineups and ticket information to be announced as details become available. The first show is slated for July 7 in Los Angeles. More dates and cities to be announced.

Ok heres what they should do put the 2 together - Free Ozzfest + Jager Second Stage = Free Jager>; But I noticed that the 2nd stage is only 1-7. I guess they arent getting enough bands to fill the usual time slot. Im just hoping some quality bands are gonna be booked. NO AVENGED SEVENFOLD!

I like the time slot but I don't like I won't see as many bands. But this way I'll definitely see all the bands. In Ozzfest 2005 I missed the first couple bands. I guess for Wicked Wisdom it was a good thing but I missed The Haunted too. That p***ed me off. But this is like the same time slot as SOTU. And as along as they have some decent/good bands it'll be okay.

DUDE NO ONE KNOWS ANYTHING!!! YOU KNOW AS MUCH AS WE DO. I hope they don't have local bands because a lot of people don't want to see local bands. If I'm going to a local show then I'm going to a local show, Ozzfest is not one. It's kinda harsh but I want to go to Ozzfest to see bands that I have the CD's of, not demos. I've been in local bands and it would be cool, but there wouldn't be as many people showing up because it's just a bunch of local bands opening for Ozzy and BLS.
