For the last 8 years, there has been something going on in Columbus, Ohio that has changed the world of Rock. There is a pilgrimage of music fans trekking here expecting to have their perception of what a music festival is changed forever.
With hundreds of thousands of concert goers showing up, this event is doing just that. This musically religious occurrence of sorts is Rock on the Range and you might just be missing out if you aren’t there…
Now this is the biggest of the 8 installments of The World’s Loudest Month series. Rock on the Range is comprised of mostly of mainstream hard rock and metal bands but a classic band usually headlines the show. The line-ups now can exceed 60 plus bands over 3 days with 3 stages.
This year’s headliner is none other than the classic metal giant Judas Priest, fronted by the “God of Metal” Rob Halford. He and the band are out supporting their current album “Redeemer of Souls” and the re-release and 30th anniversary of their album “Defenders of the Faith”.
The mere mention of Judas Priest will draw tens of thousands to the show! Alongside Judas Priest are Boston’s own Godsmack, Myles Kennedy with Slash from Guns N’ Roses and NYC thrash legends Anthrax, amongst many others.
Now, people travel from all corners of the planet to attend this spectacle of musical bedlam and they bring all their excitement with them. Last year the total attendance topped 120, 000 and sold out before they even opened the gates! There are multiple ticket options including single day, 3 day and even a camping package if you want to bring your RV and tailgate the whole time with all your fellow concert goers.
If you want to see who else is on this stellar line-up and check out all the excitement for yourself then go to and hopefully get yourself a ticket before they are all gone! Keep checking back here though, because we will be there reporting on all that Rock on the Range has to offer!
