The ROTR Rolling Rock Comedy Tent will feature sets from nationally known comedians plus Columbus’s top comedy talent. The full comedy lineup will be announced in the coming weeks.

Jonathan Davis of KORN comments, “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!”

Dexter Holland of THE OFFSPRING says, “Great lineup at Rock On The Range this year. THE OFFSPRING can’t wait to finally be part of it all.”

Gary Spivack, Rock On The Range co-executive producer for Danny Wimmer Presents, says: “After our record-breaking ten-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 Rock On The Range our best one yet. May 19-21 can’t come soon enough.”

Rock On The Range celebrated its tenth year in 2016 — and after a decade of setting the standard for American rock festivals, the crown jewel of the World’s Loudest Month showed no signs of slowing down, with “Rangers” from around the globe descending on MAPFRE Stadium. In 2016, the festival received awards of recognition from both Columbus mayor Andrew J. Ginther and the City Council, as well as a resolution from the Franklin County Board of Commissioners acknowledging the over $140 million in economic impact the festival has contributed to the city over its ten-year existence.

Rock On The Range is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, AEG Live and MAPFRE Stadium.

Rock On The Range is supported by our rockin’ sponsors: Monster Energy, Bud Light, and Zippo. These partners, along with many others, will feature interactive experiences, artist meet-and-greets, and other unique fan engagement opportunities throughout the festival.
