There won’t be a three-day line-up of hard rock and metal anywhere in North America quite like Rock On The Range 2017. The festival has always boasted an incredible roster of bands, and this year’s lineup is stacked! If you remove the three headliners there are still numerous excellent opportunities to have your face melted via killer acts. Chevelle, Thrice, Pierce The Veil, Motionless In White, Gojira, Red Fang, The Offspring, Papa Roach, Coheed and Cambria, KYNG, Alter Bridge, In Flames, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Volbeat, Primus, The Pretty Reckless, Biffy Clyro, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Zakk Sabbath, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Deafheaven, and Royal Republic are all groups that simply will not disappoint.

Mapfre Stadium is going to deliver three days of historic live sets on May 19th, 20th and 21st. The performance times for Rock On The Range have been announced. The Rolling Rock Comedy Tent line-up has also been announced. All participating bands/comedians set-times are included below.

Here are a few acts to put on your list to take a look at over your three-day Rock On The Range immersion:

Biffy Clyro: If this festival were in the UK, one of the headliners would be pushed back by Biffy Clyro, a UK hard rock act capable of drawing 30,000 die hard fans at any festival they attach their name to abroad. Get there early – Don’t miss Biffy Clyro at 3:15 pm on Sunday on the Monster Main Stage. They are truly a force to be reckoned with.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes: Never heard of Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes? Frank Carter is guaranteed to launch himself off the stage and float around overtop of the crowd, spewing his unique punk rock intensity directly into the faces of early attendees. Carter’s Modern Ruin is easily one of the best albums of 2017! Go early and see Frank Carter at 12:35 pm on the Bud Light Stage on Saturday. He’ll deliver a mind blowing performance, guaranteed.

Dinosaur Pile-Up: Dinosaur Pile-Up, a UK three-piece pop-punk band comprised of three energetic young Leeds rockers, will totally impress when they take the Zippo Stage at 2:40 pm on Sunday afternoon. Matt Bigland is a rock-n-roll dynamo, delivering massive buzz-saw guitar riffs on every song he and his bandmates touch. Don’t miss this opportunity to catch Dinosaur Pile-Up on North American soil.

The Dillinger Escape Plan: The Dillinger Escape Plan are wrapping up their twenty-year tenure as a band, touring one of their career-best albums. Nobody can touch The Dillinger Escape Plan for sheer ferocity – and they will utterly deliver the goods at 5:05 pm on the Zippo Stage Sunday.

Gojira: Gojira at 5:45 pm on the Bud Light Stage Friday. This French four-piece have continuously surpassed themselves album by album. Their latest, Magma, is one of the finest modern metal albums. When they drop “Stranded” a few songs into their set, things are guaranteed to get real intense.

Performance times have been announced for the sold-out Rock On The Range, held May 19, 20 and 21 at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, OH. Rock legends Metallica, Soundgarden and Korn will each headline one night of America’s largest and most acclaimed rock festival, now in its 11th year. In addition, the full lineup has been announced for the Rolling Rock Comedy Tent, led by Jim Breuer, Nikki Glaser, and Tony Hinchcliffe.
