Judas Priest Will Take Over Ozzy Osbourne’s Spot At Power Trip Festival

Shortly after Ozzy Osbourne announced that he won’t be participating in Power Trip Festival in California, Judas Priest posted on their Instagram to let people know they are stepping in.

Before the announcement came, Osbourne had previously assured fans that the band that will be taking his place won’t disappoint them, adding:

“The band that will be replacing me on Power Trip will be announced shortly. They are personal friends of mine, and I can promise that you will not be disappointed.”

After Ozzy’s words, Judas Priest shared:

“Power Trippers, are you ready for some Judas Priest-style Heavy Metal? Judas Priest is primed and proud to fly the flag for Heavy Metal at this prestigious festival. We are ready to raise double horns way up high together, keeping the metal faith at this ‘bostin’ one-of-a-kind Power Trip world event.”

Power Trip Festival is planned to take place on 6-8 October at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, hosting Guns N’ Roses and Iron Maiden (Friday, October 6), AC/DC and Judas Priest (Saturday, October 7) and Metallica and Tool (Sunday, October 8).
