I’m sure a lot of you have seen it elsewhere by , but big news was announced on the 2007 Ozzfest Music Festival — it’s FREE.

Details have yet to fully emerge on this other than the fact that this will be free and you’ll be given some more info soon from Nation on how to obtain . I’m sure a bunch of radio stations will do some wild promotion that’ll require you to bite the head off a bat, but even still — that’s definitely worth the free price of admission to all the newest and hottest hard metal bands.

We’ll see — I’m slightly skeptical that they’ll be able to effectively pull this off sponsorships alone. Can you imagine how far they’ll need to take this to make it cost-effective?

Free is free, better is better and all — but this just smells of PR and sure-to-backfire sponsorship deals anchoring the entire length of festival. Color me pessimistic.
