Foo Fighters to Headline Inaugural Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival
Joe Kleon
Slated to take place on May 17, 18 and 19 of next year, the Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival will replace Rock on the Range, the popular metal festival that took place for the past 12 years at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus.

According to a press release announcing the event, it will feature “a premium food and beverage selection, art installations, plus expanded onsite experiences like never before to accompany a spectacular and diverse music lineup.”

The lineup includes acts such as the Foo Fighters [pictured], Disturbed, System of a Down, Bring Me the Horizon, Ghost, the Prodigy, Halestorm, Lamb of God, Chenille, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.

“I am so proud of what we accomplished with Rock On the Range, and we couldn’t have done it without our partnership with AEG,” says organizer Danny Wimmer in a press release. “When we started Rock On the Range, there was no other festival in America quite like it, but recently, it became clear that we had different visions of where to take the festival next. The city of Columbus and our devoted rock fans deserve a one-of-a-kind, world-class festival, and that is exactly what Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival will bring to MAPFRE Stadium."

The event will also feature a SiriusXM Comedy & Spoken Word Tent with acts such as Andrew Dice Clay, Pauly Shore and Henry Rollins.

Tickets go on sale at noon on Friday.
