ROCK ON THE RANGE 2012 reveals lineup for sixth annual festival at Crew Stadium
ROCK ON THE RANGE returns for its sixth year, boasting a massive lineup covering the rock spectrum. America’s premier destination rock festival will be held May 18-20 at Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, featuring performances from Incubus, Rob Zombie, Shinedown, Marilyn Manson, Five Finger Death Punch, Slash, Megadeth, Chevelle, Cypress Hill, Mastodon and many more.

The May 18 party will feature performances from Hairball, Foxy Shazam, Hells Bells and more.
“There are so many incredible bands playing at ROTR this year, and every one of them is significant,” says Del Williams, co-executive producer of the event for Right Arm Entertainment. “I think this is the most interesting mix of bands that we have had at the festival. The Rangers already know that the weekend is going to be insanely great, but there will be surprises this year and a certain edge to the lineup that will likely create some of the most memorable moments in the six-year history of Rock on the Range."
The current lineup for ROCK ON THE RANGE 2012 is as follows: Incubus, Rob Zombie, Shinedown, Marilyn Manson, Five Finger Death Punch, Slash, Megadeth, Chevelle, Cypress Hill, Mastodon, Theory of a Deadman, Volbeat, Down, The Darkness, Halestorm, Escape The Fate, P.O.D., Lacuna Coil, Adelitas Way, Black Stone Cherry, Cavo, Attack Attack!, Trivium, Bobaflex, Falling In Reverse, Redlight King, Aranda, Emphatic, Otherwise, James Durbin, Black Tide, Kyng, 12 Stones, SOiL, Rival Sons, Eve To Adam, and Ghosts of August.
"Incubus is stoked to be joinin' the killer lineup at Rock On The Range this year,” said Brandon Boyd of festival co-headliner Incubus. “We'll see y'all in Columbus."
"If you thought last time was a blast, then this time we are gonna blow your [expletive] mind," added co-headliner Rob Zombie.
