Black Sabbath and Slipknot have revealed running times for their Ozzfest Meets Knotfest event in California this month.

The two metal giants will join forces at the San Manuel Amphitheater, San Bernardino, on the weekend of September 24 and 25.

Ozzfest will run on the first day while Knotfest will operate on the second. The main stage has been named the Lemmy Stage in honour of the Motorhead icon, who died in December.

Other acts on the bill include Slayer, Disturbed, Megadeth, Amon Amarth, Suicidal Tendencies, DevilDriver, Sabaton, Suicide Silence and others.

Announcing Ozzfest Meets Knotfest in May, Ozzy Osbourne’s wife Sharon said: “We came up with Ozzfest and for 20 years it was amazing. And for many of those years we had the unbelievable Slipknot playing. And Slipknot came along and kicked our arses and created Knotfest.

“They took that around the world and it was hugely successful and critically acclaimed as one of the best festivals on Earth. Then we decided, ‘Why not merge together?’”
