Rock on the Range has suddenly retired from its name after twelve years and luckily, we were there for its final run last May. However, this isn’t an official farewell as the event is being replaced by Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival. The reason for this change appears to be due to a split between Danny Wimmer Presents and AEG Live as Danny Wimmer Presents will continue to back the festival next year at the MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, OH on May 17th-19th.
“I am so proud of what we accomplished with Rock On The Range, and we couldn’t have done it without our partnership with AEG. When we started Rock On The Range, there was no other festival in America quite like it but recently it became clear that we had different visions of where to take the festival next. The city of Columbus and our devoted rock fans deserve a one-of-a-kind, world-class festival, and that is exactly what Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival will bring to MAPFRE Stadium.”
