America's premiere rock festival, ROCK ON THE RANGE, is back for its second year after a hugely successful inaugural sold out show in 2007, and it's bigger than ever.
Presented by Right Arm Entertainment, AEG LIVE, and The Columbus Crew Stadium, the multi-stage music and lifestyle event has expanded to two days in order to meet the tremendous demand for tickets and will take place on Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18 at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH. The line-up for this nationally renowned festival centrally located in the heart of the country includes the debut of the newly reunited Stone Temple Pilots, marking the group's first performance together in over seven years.
In addition, ROCK ON THE RANGE 2008 is literally packed with performances by the biggest names in rock music today including: Kid Rock, 3 Doors Down, Disturbed, Staind, Papa Roach, Seether, Serj Tankian, Flyleaf, Shinedown, Killswitch Engage, Finger Eleven, Alter Bridge, Filter, Theory of a Dead Man, Sevendust, Default, 10 Years, Bobaflex, Red, Airbourne, Black Tide, Revelation Theory, Ashes Divide, Drive A and more.
This year's two-day event will feature 28 bands on two stages, an expanded festival village, state of the art main stage LED screens, enhanced main stage and second stage sound and light systems, dynamic new merchandise (t-shirts, hats, hoodies) and an expanded main stage field area for fans who purchase Field General Admission Tickets.
The team at Columbus Crew Stadium, the home of ROCK ON THE RANGE, located at the Ohio State Fairgrounds, has also worked hard this past year to build on the incredible fan experience. With the addition of a permanent main stage and roof structure, updated patron entrance procedures for Field General Admission ticket holders, expanded VIP parking, and new VIP Hotel & VIP Vehicle Camp packages, the venue is more than ready for the two day party.
"Rock On The Range proved to be one of the hottest music festival tickets in the Midwest last year," said Columbus Crew General Manager Mark McCullers. "We look forward to the event covering two days in 2008 and remaining one of the best music events of the year."
