Ozzy Osbourne, KISS, Korn + More to Crush 2017 Chicago Open Air Festival
The Chicago Open Air Festival is returning in 2017 with a stacked lineup! The three-day event will feature rock and metal’s biggest acts, with KISS, Korn and Ozzy Osbourne headlining consecutive nights.
Last year’s inaugural Chicago Open Air debuted with a roaring lineup with headliners like Slipknot, Disturbed and Rammstein. After demolishing Bridgeview, Ill., last year, Chicago Open Air will return with another crushing bill, plenty of craft beer and “gourmet man food” from July 14-16.
The July 14 lineup with be capped off by KISS following sets from Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Anthrax, Meshuggah and more fill the day. The following day will see Korn in the headlining spot, accompanied by Godsmack, Seether, Clutch, Steel Panther and many more. The fest’s final night will be headlined by the legendary Ozzy Osbourne after Slayer, Stone Sour, Lamb of God, Amon Amarth and more pummel the festival crowd.
Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor raves, "We are beyond stoked to be a part of Chicago Open Air this year. If you've never seen Stone Sour before, you're in for a g-ddamn treat. If you HAVE seen Stone Sour before, forget what you're expecting. It's a whole new ballgame. See you all soon!"
This should be one hell of a gathering, so make sure you grab your tickets once they go on sale Friday, Jan. 20, at noon CT / 1PM ET.
