Details of Ozzy Osbourne's Ozzfest
Ozzfest is an annual music festival tour founded by Ozzy Osbourne's wife and manager. It was founded in 1996 and has held several performances by heavy metal and hard rock musical groups. This music festival will take place in the Metaverse this year.
Ozzfest will be hosted for the first since 2018 and for the first time virtually. Ozzy Osborne will appear as one of the headlining acts, with more performers to be announced. A total of over 100 artists will play at the virtual event. The other announced performers include rapper Soulja Boy and DJ Eddy-Temple Morris. They will be making their appearances in avatar form.
The digital festival will take place in Decentraland from November 10 to November 13. This festival will be the second edition of Decentraland's Metaverse Music Festival(MVMF). The Metaverse Music Festival debuted in October 2021 and drew over 50,000 visitors.
Ozzfest 2022 Collaboration
Decentraland has been working to put together additional features and skills to enable avatars to enjoy the event virtually. This creates an impression as if they were in the real world. For example, the introduction of NFT Emotes gives an artist anywhere in the world the ability to develop creative actions and gestures that bring avatars to life. It also allows them to express themselves in ways such as performing dance steps.
Ozzfest 2022 will happen in collaboration with Kraken. The event's presenting partner will release a series of NFT wearables exclusively for those attending the festival. Kraken also plans to open a pop-up NFT gallery and throw a unique festival after the party. Participants don't need to use a VR headset during the event, although it will increase the immersive experience of the festival. Admission into the virtual event is free, and people can pre-register on the event page.
