After selling out its fourth year in a row, Rock on the Range has announced the lineup for the 2017 festival and will feature ’90s powerhouse Soundgarden alongside perennial metal godfathers Metallica. Along with Korn, the three will each headline a respective night of the festival, to be held May 19-21 at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, OH. The weekend festival will also feature camping and specialty tickets, all of which are on sale now at

Jonathan Davis of Korn spoke about their set via press release:

“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!”

The Offspring vocalist Dexter Holland also commented on how “great” the lineup is, and that “The Offspring can’t wait to finally be part of it all.”

Last year, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Megadeth and magazine favorites Lacey Sturm, Memphis May Fire and Miss May I all played sets celebrating the event’s tenth year. “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,” Gary Spivack, an executive producer of the event, said. “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 ROTR our best one yet. May 19-21 can’t come soon enough.”

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
