The 12th annual Rock on the Range will return to Mapfre Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, on Friday, May 18, Saturday, May 19, and Sunday, May 20, with headliners Tool, Avenged Sevenfold and Alice in Chains.

Many of the biggest names in rock will be joined by up-and-coming talent such as Greta Van Fleet, Code Orange, Power Trip and New Years Day.
“Rock on the Range is the undisputed champion of American rock festivals,” said Avenged Sevenfold vocalist M. Shadows. “The team over there has done an incredible job of curating a potent mix of all the types of rock ’n’ roll that any fan could ask for. It’s an honor to play at the top of the bill, and we cannot wait to see everyone in May.”
“We are looking forward to returning to Rock on the Range as a headliner this year and rocking out with all of you. Bring It!” said Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains.
“Following last year’s amazing festival, we knew we had to deliver,” said Gary Spivack, executive producer for Rock on the Range. “We have one of the only shows from Tool in 2018, a band the Rangers have been wanting for years–and also having A Perfect Circle on the same festival is something special. Adding Avenged Sevenfold, Alice in Chains, Godsmac, and the special returns of Stone Sour and Stone Temple Pilots only builds on that excitement. We can’t wait for May.”
