Although some punters will undoubtedly be dismayed by Ozzy Osbourne’s recent cancellation due to illness (not very metal at all), we’re sure that a brutal 90 minute closing set from thrash legends Slayer will be enough to appease most fans. Elsewhere, Judas Priest and Alice In Chains are both locked in to perform for 75 minutes, while sets from the likes of Converge, Code Orange and Rise Against are bound to be heavy hitters in the mosh pit.
