Rock on the Range is commonly seen as the biggest rock festival in the United States every year. In its eighth year, ROTR has grown from one day in 2007 to two and a half days in 2013 to three full days in 2014 and continues to grow at a rapid pace.
2013 saw numerous memorable moments- including Brian “Head” Welch’s official return to KoRn, Cheap Trick bringing members of Buckcherry on Stage and more.
