On Monday (January 14), the festival announced that Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed, and Shinedown will headline the annual three-day affair taking place on Memorial Day weekend (May 24-26) at the "Catch The Fever" Festival Grounds in Pryor, Oklahoma.
"Believe it or not, I've been doing shows in Oklahoma since 1971, so I know that they have some of the best audiences in the world there," Osbourne said in a statement of his appearance, which will serve as the opening date of the North American leg of his 2019 farewell tour. Meanwhile, Shinedown frontman Brent Smith said that the band is eager to bring a top-notch set to the festival. "We are very much looking forward to bringing everyone at this year’s Rocklahoma our 100% A-GAME!!! Get Up and Get Ready," he wrote.

"Our fans grew up coming here and now their kids are following suit. We share their same enthusiasm and vision and worked hard to make sure there was something for everyone," Rocklahoma producer Mike DuCharme said in a statement. "We are excited to have the legendary Ozzy Osbourne, surrounded by several fan favorites returning like Shinedown, Disturbed and Bush, plus a few that helped build the history of this event like Jackyl, Lita Ford and Ace Frehley. Fans can expect improvements to the site and experience in 2019. Get ready to rock as this year promises to be another weekend-long party!"
