American rock festival Rock On The Range - which has expanded to three days this year - will hit hard with performances from some of rock’s biggest names. Pre-sale tickets are available at this location.

The 2013 line-up features Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, Bush, Stone Sour, Three Days Grace, Papa Roach, Cheap Trick, Bullet For My Valentine, Volbeat, Lamb Of God, Skillet, A Day To Remember, Buckcherry, Halestorm, Hollywood Undead, All That Remains, Device (with David Draiman), Steel Panther, Sevendust, Sick Puppies, Asking Alexandria, Pop Evil, In Flames, Clutch, In This Moment, Black Veil Brides, The Sword, Ghost, Motionless In White, Red, Deuce, Middle Class Rut, Big Wreck, Oleander, Otherwise, Red Line Chemistry, Young Guns, Thousand Foot Krutch, Mindset Evolution, Tracer, Beware Of Darkness, Heaven's Basement, American Fangs, Love And Death, Gemini Syndrome, and more.

“We're really looking forward to returning to Rock On The Range with a batch of brand new killer Alice tunes to play for everyone!” says Jerry Cantrell, Alice In Chains.

“Head is back!!,” says Korn’s Jonathan Davis. “Rock On The Range is going to start it all off!! Get ready, we are going to hit it hard!!”

“Bush are thrilled to be playing Rock On The Range with such great bands,” says Bush’s Gavin Rosdale. “We look forward to seeing you all out there.”

“This massive lineup has scratched our seven-year itch!” says Gary Spivack, co-executive producer of the event for Right Arm Entertainment. “Getting Soundgarden for their first Ohio play in two decades and having seminal acts Alice In Chains, Korn, Volbeat and Papa Roach return along with bands new to ROTR that include Smashing Pumpkins and Bush, and everything in between--the spectrum of rock n roll is covered…three days of constant energy. Rock On The Range is truly where rock lives.”

Now in its seventh year, ROTR will again take place at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH on Friday, May 17, Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19, 2013. With the addition of a full slate of artists performing on Friday, festival organizers are also adding a series of additional enhancements for ROTR 2013, including the new ROTR Comedy Tent.

“Our goal with ROTR is to constantly create new and interesting ways to expand the event and give even more value to our fans,” comments Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the event for AEG Live. “In 2013, we’ve added a comedy tent within the site that will be curated by The Funny Bone comedy club. Having a slate of incredible, up-and-coming comedians to riff on the rock experience will be a great change of pace for the weekend. The site layout is also changing dramatically in 2013 to create better event flow, to add more interactive fan activity to the festival, and to allow even more people to experience the higher caliber of talent on the second stage this year.”

This fest I'm stunned has changes states finally but..to a lineup where I say meh..too. I know this fest will lean more towards rock but..come on MOST of these bands play in the US/Canada at lest once a year. So..bring better metal here.

It seems like Head is back in Korn but they aren't officially announcing it with a big statement or anything. I noticed both Korn and Head have started referring to his solo material as his "side project" lately.

I'm a sucker for In Flames and Clutch. Volbeat, Sevendust, and Ghost are good draws for me, as well. I'm also friends with a few of the guys in Red Line Chemistry.

All that aside, not worth the travel and money. I have no doubt that it will be a good time, though.
