When the lineup was announced in January, fans were buzzing over the headliners, but the big questions was, which day will Ozzy play. Fans no longer have to wonder when their favorite band on the lineup will make an appearance.
The festival will start gearing up on Thursday night with the Roadhouse Pre-party. Bands scheduled to play include, Slaughter, Strutter, Rocket Science and Poster Child. The Thursday night Pre-party gets everybody in the mood for the long weekend of music. Tulsa will be represented by two rock bands who regularly perform at local venues, Poster Child and Rocket Science. KISS tribute band Strutter will keep the parting going and everyone knows about Slaughter and their hits “Up All Night”, “Spend My Life” and “Fly to the Angels”.
