The dates for the “Worlds Loudest Month” festivals were recently announced, and the biggest of those major spring festivals has now revealed its 2016 lineup. Rock on the Range enters its tenth year of operation, with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Disturbed and Rob Zombie leading the way.
“We’ve waited long enough and so have you. Get ready, cause Disturbed is back and we can’t wait to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Rock on the Range,” state Disturbed.
Zombie adds, “Rock on the Range is easily one of the best festivals I’ve ever played. Looking forward to doing it again.”
Drummer Vinnie Paul, whose band Hellyeah will be part of the lineup, is playing his first show in Columbus since the tragic slaying of his brother Dimebag Darrell in the same city when both were members of Damageplan. Paul says, “Twelve years after my last performance in Columbus, Ohio, I have decided it’s time to bring the music of Hellyeah to the great rock and roll fans and attend Rock on the Range!! We are looking forward to kickin’ your ass at this great event.”
Rock on the Range returns for its 10th anniversary May 20-22 at Columbus, Ohio’s MAPFRE Stadium.
