EVANESCENCE, VELVET REVOLVER, PAPA ROACH and BUCKCHERRY are among the confirmed bands for the first annual Rock On The Range music festival, set to take place Saturday, May 19 at the Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. Also scheduled to appear are ZZ TOP, HINDER, BREAKING BENJAMIN, CHEVELLE, THREE DAYS GRACE, PUDDLE OF MUDD and BLACK STONE CHERRY, among others.

"No event like Rock on the Range currently exists in the area and it has the potential to fill a tremendous void for outdoor summer concert entertainment in the future," Columbus Crew General Manager Mark McCullers said, according to Soccer365.

"This is a music festival that was not created with trendiness in mind — the only prerequisite at Rock On The Range is a passion for great rock music and a good time," said organizer Del Williams. "We chose Columbus as the location for this national event because it's centrally located. And right there, in the heart of America, is where you'll find the epicenter of pure, no-strings-attached rock n' roll."
