Kerry King of Slayer said, “Super excited to be a part of Rock On The Range this year!! I think it's awesome to have an edgy band like Slayer on board for this round. Can't wait to hit the stage!!!”

“Sure it’s important to do this festival for the bands, but mostly we do it for the incredibly loyal rock fans They truly are the lifeblood of Rock on the Range, and it’s really all about the value proposition to them,” commented Joe Litvag, Co-Executive Producer of ROTR for AEG Live. “So now we come with GnR, Avenged Sevenfold, Kid Rock and more than 60 other amazing bands starting at $99 to deliver on our commitment of ‘value’ to rock fans everywhere It’s going to be an unforgettable weekend!”

“When ROTR sold out last year we knew the bar had to be raised. With these headliners along with Five Finger Death Punch, Slayer, Motorhead, Staind, Seether and so many more, there is no doubt now that Rock On The Range has become THE #1 rock festival.” said Gary Spivack, Co-Executive Producer of ROTR. “And since year one, Monster Energy has been a partner at the festival and we are excited to announce their expanding support; their dedication to the genre as well as breaking new artists is second to none.”

“Rock on the Range has emerged as a powerhouse event for our organization, the City of Columbus and rock fans from around the country,” said Columbus Crew President Mark McCullers. “We have invested in some significant facility improvements that will add to the Ranger experience and this year’s event will be another blockbuster show.”
