More than 38 bands will once again come together to celebrate rock at the fourth annual Rock On The Range, set for May 22 and 23 at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. The lineup includes first-timer "Rangers" ROB ZOMBIE, GODSMACK (in their first announced show of 2010), the return of LIMP BIZKIT and the festival solo debut of VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash. The two-day lineup for America's premiere destination rock festival includes some of the most rocking artists in music today. In addition, marking another first for Rock On The Range, Mistress Juliya of Fuse TV has signed on as the hostess and Mistress of Ceremonies for the event.

Sully Erna from GODSMACK says: "Fasten your seatbelts baby, here comes GODSMACK! I can't WAIT to get to Columbus for what will be the best Rock On The Range yet! GODSMACK is gonna kick some major *@%*!"

Del Williams, co-executive producer of the event for Right Arm Entertainment, explains: "We designed ROTR 2010 to be the biggest weekend of ROCK at an incredibly low ticket price for the fans affectionately referred to as the 'Rangers.' This year's line-up represents the most compelling mix of bands that we have ever had. GODSMACK is one of the most prolific active rock bands of all time, and the intrepid ROB ZOMBIE is an unrivaled performer. We are particularly excited about the return of LIMP BIZKIT, who have been tearing it up at European festivals. It is time for them to come back to America and remind people why they were at one time one of the biggest bands in the world."

"In four short years, this festival has become like no other in the United States," added Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the festival for AEG Live. "We've been fortunate enough to create something that caters to a very specific music lover, and the fans have become truly rabid for it. Rock On The Range has become the summer destination for an entire nation of rock fans… It's amazing, really."

Two-day weekend festival passes start at just $99.50. A special pre-sale for Rock On The Range fans will start February 16 and for the first time, fans can buy their tickets this year via a layaway plan.

"The vision of Rock On The Range has always been to provide a premiere rock festival for a very affordable price," said Mark McCullers, President and General Manager of the Columbus Crew. "Each year we look for new ways to enhance the fans' experience. Two specific improvements for 2010 are an increased viewing area for our fans at the Jägermeister stage and a layaway plan as an additional payment option for our Rock On The Range fans."

Details of the layaway plan as well as VIP packages that include festival tickets, hotel accommodations and festival merchandise can be found at RockOnTheRange.com. All tickets go on sale February 20 at 10:00 a.m. (ET) via RockOnTheRange.com and Ticketmaster.com, all local Ticketmaster outlets and at the Crew Stadium box office.

It's about time the USA got a huge metal festival similar to the 15 a year Europe gets! Too bad there aren't more death/black metal bands, but it still is great to see! :party: :rocker:

Thank Goodness for Scion II... there's like, 3 bands on here that I have nostalgic respect for, and all the others are the exact types of shows to avoid.

there's a lot on there I like and a lot I'm meh about, hopefully everything I want to see is on one day although I'll probably go to both days for the experience like last year. It was a good time.

like I said there are some I'd love to see, most on a different show, but my girlfriend likes a lot of the bands too and is excited so between the ones I want to see, one's she wants to see and the ones I'm like sure I'll see them cause I'm there, we'll probably go. Anyone know if presale are cheaper? That's probably a dumb question but if they are how much?
