Taking place at Mapfre Stadium in Columbus, Ohio between May 19 through 21, the festival will see over 50 bands take the stage, including powerhouse headliners in Metallica, Soundgarden and Korn.

Speaking about the fest, Korn singer Jonathan Davis exclaimed, “Rock On The Range is the pinnacle rock festival in America. I always feel that in the crowd and can’t wait for our headline set in May. We’re gonna come at you with everything we’ve got — expect a few surprises!”
“After our record breaking 10 year anniversary it was high time to raise the bar and have the world’s best rock bands jump over it. We couldn’t be more honored to have Metallica and Soundgarden at Rock On The Range! But why stop there? To have bands such as Korn, Volbeat, Primus, Papa Roach, The Offspring and so many more truly makes this year’s ROTR our best one yet. May 19-21 can’t come soon enough,” commented Gary Spivack, Rock on the Range co-executive producer for Danny Wimmer Presents.
