(PCM) As if we already weren’t excited enough about the line-up for this year’s Rock On The Range, today’s announcement about even more bands being added to the already stellar line-up, paired with the official line-up for the Comedy Tent has truly upped the anticipation.
Rock On The Range will be held on May 15, 16, and 17th at the newly renamed Mapfre Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. Festival producers explain the name change by saying “Rangers, your rock home is now MAPFRE Stadium, formerly Crew Stadium (pronounced “MAH-fray”). Same rock experience. Same home. New name!”
The Pretty Reckless, Tremonti, Vamps, The Danger Kids, and Highly Suspect join a stellar lineup of top rock bands led by multiplatinum Linkin Park, global rock juggernauts Slipknot, and heavy metal legends Judas Priest–who are currently celebrating their 40th Anniversary–for a full weekend of non-stop rock on three stages. The daily lineups will be announced in early April.
The ROTR Comedy Tent will feature sets from some of the biggest rock n’ roll influenced comedians, including: Rob Schneider, Brian Posehn, Jim Norton, Don Jamieson, Jim Florentine, Rod Paulette, Jeremy Essig, Brent Terhune, Joe Howard, Bill Squire, Jay Snyder, Bill Arrundale, Jake Iannarino, Kenny Smith, and Craig Peters.
