Rock On The Range—the largest and most-acclaimed rock festival in America—have announced additions to the 10th Anniversary festival experience May 20, 21 & 22, 2016 at Mapfre Stadium in Columbus, OH.
Joining the already incredible music lineup are Deftones, The Shrine and Andrew Watt. The festival features three days of music on three stages, with the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers, hard rock titans Disturbed (who have returned after a 4-year hiatus), rock icon/filmmaker Rob Zombie, Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch, Bring Me The Horizon, A Day To Remember, Megadeth, At The Drive-In, Lamb Of God, Sixx:A.M., Hellyeah, and Pennywise, along with the genre’s hottest developing artists. View the full festival lineup here.
Deftones’ Chino Moreno says, “Rock On The Range has always been a show we enjoy playing, and to be a part of the 10th year is particularly exciting for us, especially with a new album in tow. See you all in May.”
Returning again is the ROTR Rolling Rock Comedy Tent featuring some of rock’s favorite comedians including Grammy nominated Jay Mohr, Big Jay Oakerson, Nate Bargatze, Craig Gass, and Bethany Dwyer, plus Columbus’s top comedy talent.
In addition, Saturday night’s festivities at Rock On The Range will include a live version of That Metal Show (based on the VH1 Classic program) starring hosts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine. The live show will feature interviews with various ROTR bands, a Stump The Trunk segment, and typical That Metal Show commentary from Trunk, Jamieson and Florentine.
Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine proclaim, “Hey Rangers! Get ready for the rock reunion of a lifetime! No, not Guns N’ Roses…the three of us are reuniting for a special ‘That Metal Show’ live on stage for Rock On The Range’s 10th anniversary. Hope to see you all at America’s #1 rock festival!”
Another new element to ROTR is the Craft Beer Village, which will feature top breweries from the region.
To celebrate the festival’s 10th year, Rock On The Range 2016 will feature an exhibit area for all patrons to enjoy, showcasing the Rock On The Range Photography Collection, highlighting the last 10 years.
