Rock On The Range celebrated its 10th year in 2016 – and after a decade of setting the standard for American rock festivals, the crown jewel of the World’s Loudest Month showed no signs of slowing down with 120,000 “Rangers” from around the globe descending on MAPFRE Stadium. In 2016, the festival received awards of recognition from both Columbus Mayor Andrew J. Ginther and the City Council, as well as a resolution from the Franklin County Board of Commissioners acknowledging the over $140 million in economic impact the festival has contributed to the city over its 10-year existence.
Rock On The Range is supported by our rockin’ sponsors: Monster Energy, Bud Light, and Zippo. These partners, along with many others, will feature interactive experiences, artist meet & greets, and other unique fan engagement opportunities throughout the festival.
