The festival actually kicks off July 12 in Auburn, Washington and runs through August 30 in West palm Beach, Florida. While it's relying on sponsorship, the free tickets are reportedly hard to get with all the trouble of requesting and code entering. The Ozzy Osbourne-helmed festival is also not so free after all for tickets costing up to $1,000 are offered for VIP 'sight'.
