AMERICA's premier destination rock festival, the 2013 ROCK ON THE RANGE, was a smashing success. In just seven years, the festival has grown to a sold-out, three-night music celebration with more than 50 bands performing this past weekend (5/17-5/19) at COLUMBUS CREW STADIUM in COLUMBUS,OH.

Presented by RIGHT ARM ENTERTAINMENT, AEG LIVE and CREW STADIUM, ticket buyers traveled from 49 states (and three countries) for this year's ROTR, which generated an economic impact of $17 million to the COLUMBUS metro area.
This year's Main Stage headliners included KORN and CHEAP TRICK on FRIDAY, SMASHING PUMPKINS and STONE SOUR on SATURDAY and SOUNDGARDEN and ALICE IN CHAINS on SUNDAY.
Some of the 2013 ROCK ON THE RANGE performers had glowing comments about this year's festival.
JONATHAN DAVIS of KORN said, "The fans at ROTR have always been great to us, but this year ... when we stepped out there … with their biggest crowd yet … that s#*? was just sick!! What a rush."
COREY TAYLOR of STONE SOUR said "ROCK ON THE RANGE was THE best show we've had in years. The energy was insane, the crowd was Bedlam unleashed and the moment was gone all too quickly -- we could have played another hour."
GAVIN ROSSDALE of BUSH said "We had a brilliant time at ROCK ON THE RANGE. The crowd was spectacular and I want them at every show we do."
