Ozzy Osbourne and MOTÖRHEAD‘s Lemmy were among the 2023 edition of Ozzfest’s solo “headlining” act avatars. The event, which launched the careers of countless bands, including SLIPKNOT, DISTURBED, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, INCUBUS, LAMB OF GOD came to Decentraland last week and also included MEGADETH and SKID ROW‘s official music videos “performances.”
“I’m thrilled to be bringing Ozzfest to the metaverse,” Ozzy said in a press release. “This allows me and the other bands on the bill to reach our fans in a new innovative way.”
Decentraland hosted the first-ever Metaverse Music Festival in October 2021, which hosted more than 80 artists including Web3 innovators Deadmau5, 3LAU, Paris Hilton, RAC and Alison Wonderland. The four-day event saw 50,000 unique attendees. Since then, major artists including Jason Derulo and Grimes have embraced virtual performances. MTV even announced a new metaverse category at their 2022 VMAs because of this growing trend!
