Festival season has just got that little bit more insane.
Black Sabbath will headline British Summertime Festival in July with a pretty damn impressive supporting cast.
The Metal Godfathers will play the huge event in Hyde Park on Friday July 4 with Soundgarden, Faith No More, Motorhead, Soulfly and many more also on the bill! Wow.
“The first time I came to London I didn’t have a pot to piss in and I spent the advance I got for the first album on a new pair of shoes and some Brut aftershave,” says Ozzy Osbourne. “Returning almost 50 years on, we are doing a it better for ourselves so I may even splash out on some new aftershave before taking to the stage at Hyde Park, the most beautiful park in London that has opened its gates to so many legends in the past. We are beyond honoured to be allowed to put on a show and hope that the Royals will enjoy it!”
The full bill for the festival is as follows:
Great Oak Stage
Faith No More
The Barclaycard Theatre
Kobra and The Lotus
The Gravel Tones
Hang The Bastard
A Plastic Rose
Rise To Remain
Yeah, not bad, right?
Barclaycard presale tickets will be available from 9am Monday March 31, the BST/AEG presale will go from 9am Wednesday April 2 and the general onsale will come Friday April 4.
This summer is getting ridiculous.
