“Great lineup at Rock on the Range this year,” said Offspring vocalist Dexter Holland. “The Offspring can’t wait to finally be part of it all.”

“After our record-breaking 10-year Anniversary it was high time to raise the bar and have the world’s best rock bands jump over it,” said Gary Spivack, ROTR co-executive producer for Danny Wimmer Presents. “We couldn’t be more honored to have Metallica and Soundgarden at Rock on the Range! But why stop there? To have bands such as Korn, Volbeat, Primus, Papa Roach, The Offspring and so many more truly makes this year’s ROTR our best one yet. May 19-21 can’t come soon enough.”
