COLUMBUS, OH (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The 5th annual Rock On The Range festival drew record breaking crowds to Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, for what has become a major fixture in America's summer festival scene.
Produced by Right Arm Entertainment, AEG Live and Crew Stadium, two-day event featured three stages of rock music with production that was described by the Columbus Dispatch as being "run with uncommon precision." The event was headlined by a who's who of modern rock music, including Avenged Sevenfold, Korn and Asking Alexandria, while A Perfect Circle, Disturbed, Puddle of Mudd, Danzig and A Day to Remember.
"Headlining Rock On The Range was an incredible experience," says Avenged Sevenfold's frontman M. Shadows. "Two years ago, ROTR was the Rev's last U.S. show with us. But the amazing energy of the 35,000 fans at last Saturday's show reminded us how grateful we are to our fans for giving us the strength to keep going. And there were so many awesome bands; the day was a great one for rock fans."
"The fact that 2011 marked our fifth anniversary for Rock On The Range already made it special for us," commented Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the festival for AEG Live. "Then to not only beat but crush our previous attendance record, that turned it into something I’ll never forget. From start to finish it was a perfect weekend." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
