Q: Will Ozzy be at my show? A: As of now, Ozzy is scheduled to headline ALL OZZFEST DATES
Q: Will there be a limit to the number of tickets I can buy? A: Again, yes, there will be. The amount has not yet been determined, but there will be.
Q: How will I gain entrance? A: You will print out or recieve the tickets that you have secured and you will bring those with you to the event, where you will exchange them for entrance.
Q: How will the seating be decided? A: As in previous years, the second stage will still be general admission for everyone without seats. However, as far as main stage, it will be first come, first serve basis for both general admission AND the seats.

Q: How different will the bill be from date to date? A: Some second stage acts may change, however, the main stage acts will be comitted and appear throughout the tour, unless otherwise stated.
Q: Is there any truth to rumors that Ozzfest will be moved inside? A: No, the shows will be at amphitheaters as they traditionally have been.
