from BLABBERMOUTH.NETand the NYT (Jeff Leeds):

An interesting piece on Ozzfest and how the long ride they have had as the last remaining successful travelling festivals seems to be finally downsizing like Lollapallooza, Horde, etc.

Metal/Hard music has always bucked trends; will someone bust a move and create a metal Bonnaroo, an Ozzfest weekend one location event or an expansion of another event like Milwalkee Metalfest? Is there enough market for it in one place? Where are the next generation of headliners?
