COLUMBUS, OH (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Rock On The Range closed out Sunday night May 23rd with back-to-back performances from Limp Bizkit and Rob Zombie. This year’s two-day festival attendance topped previous years with over 60,000 fans.
The fourth annual ROTR outing at Columbus Crew Stadium in Ohio–featured more than 35 bands on three stages with Saturday night’s line-up led by recent Billboard album chart topper’s Godsmack.
“Rock On The Range was a total blast!” Rob Zombie said of his ROTR debut. “The fans were awesome and insane. We came to rock balls and we did. What more could you want?”
Beyond the music, the festival sponsored a variety of initiatives. In support of their Nashville neighbors, ROTR made a sizable donation from ticket proceeds to the Metro Nashville Disaster Response Fund to assist in the relief efforts there. In addition, the festival’s annual eco-friendly incentive “Go Green Initiative” (whereby concertgoers trade their old, broken or unused cell phone for special ROTR prizes) also set a record, collecting twice as many devices as last year. Meanwhile, this year, ROTR once again offered a $30 single day ticket to members of the military and those throughout the area who are unemployed as a result of the economic uncertainty in the region. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
