Jagermeister Sets the Stage for Ozzfest!

Jagermeister to sponsor Ozzfest's Second Stage with its own mobile stage

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Shortly after Sharon Osbourne made the big announcement about this year's Ozzfest -- it's free! -- she followed it up with another big announcement: Jagermeister will sponsor the entire second stage!
Known as rock's biggest juggernaut, Ozzfest is now turning to sponsors to provide added support for the festival's new incarnation as a "FREEfest," and Jagermeister is taking full advantage of the opportunity.
A longtime sponsor of Ozzfest, Jagermeister will roll out its own state of the art mobile stage for the summer's biggest heavy metal festival. All second stage acts will play on the Jagermeister stage, a fully self-contained stage hauled cross country by a custom Showhauler toter home, complete with a full audio sound system provided by JVC Mobile and amped by one whopping generator. The stage measures 34' long, 16' deep, and 20' high. The entire PA system, provided by Peavey Electronics and Schecter Guitars, will be hung for optimum sound. The stage will include state-of-the-art lighting by Chauvet. "Jagermeister has been kicking around this idea for a long time. The fact that we've spent a year designing and building this stage proves our dedication to music," says Rick Zeiler, Director of Marketing and Brand
Development for Jagermeister. "We can't wait to showcase it at Ozzfest."
"Jagermeister has been part of the Ozzfest family for the last eight years," says Sharon Osbourne. "This year they are kind enough to be supplying Ozzfest '07 with their revolutionary mobile stage. Jagermeister's stage and their continued support are helping to make our FREE Ozzfest tour concept a reality."
"We are incredibly jazzed that Jagermeister 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. "Jager has been a great supporter of Ozzfest and the metal genre for years, and we couldn't be happier to be able to help them showcase their new baby."
Bands will play the Jagermeister 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 Jagermeister 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. More dates and cities to be announced.
