(Los Angeles, CA) – Shortly after Sharon Osbourne made the big announcement that this year’s Ozzfest is free (!), organizers turned to sponsors to provide added support for the festival's new incarnation as a “FREEfest.” In stepped liquor powerhouse Jägermeister offering its own state-of- the art mobile stage as a secondary stage for the summer’s biggest heavy metal festival. And it enlisted CHAUVET® as a lighting sponsor.

Dubbed “revolutionary” by Osbourne, the Jägermeister stage is a 34-foot-long, fully self-contained stage hauled cross country, complete with a full audio sound system provided by JVC Mobile. The entire PA system, provided by Peavey Electronics and Schecter Guitars, will be hung for optimum sound. Lighting consists mostly of LED-fitted fixtures (COLORpalette™ and LEDrain™ 56 washes, LED Technostrobes) and 10mW Scorpion™ lasers. All lights are controlled via CHAUVET® ShowXpress™ software.
“We are incredibly jazzed that Jägermeister is bringing their innovative and state-of-the-art mobile stage on this history-making tour,” says Jane Holman, Vice President of Touring for Live Nation, Ozzfest’s organizer
Bands will play the Jägermeister stage every day from 1-7 p.m. In addition to Ozzfest being free, this year will also see the return of Ozzy to the main stage as headliner. He’ll be unleashing new songs from his forthcoming album. It’s going to be a groundbreaking show, and Jägermeister will be there every thundering step of the way. Lineups and ticket information to be announced as details become available. The first show is slated for July 7th in Los Angeles. Additional dates and cities to be announced.
