ROCK ON THE RANGE–America’s premier destination rock festival–is set for its Fifth Anniversary blowout, May 21-22, 2011 at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.

“Five years…that’s a long time in the crazy world of rock n’ roll!  We’re grateful to the loyal fans of mainstream rock for helping us turn ROCK ON THE RANGE into the ‘must-see’ spectacle of the summer,” commented Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the festival for AEG Live.  “And as our way of saying thank you to the ‘Rangers,’ we thought we’d throw them a giant party on Friday night…Should be entertaining, to say the least!”

The Saturday and Sunday line-ups for ROCK ON THE RANGE 2011 will be announced early next year.  Stay tuned to www.RockOnTheRange.com, www.facebook.com/rockontherange, and www.twitter.com/rockontherange for the most up-to-date information on future announcements.

“Our fifth anniversary show is going to reflect how ROCK ON THE RANGE has grown into a true destination festival for Rock fans around the world,” said Del Williams, co-executive producer of the event for Right Arm Entertainment.   “The ‘Rangers’ come from virtually everywhere for ROTR, and they arrive in Columbus early looking to get the party started. That’s why we decided to throw a party at the stadium on Friday night. ROTR 2011 will arguably feature our biggest lineup with the most variety.   It’s very exciting to think about what’s in store.”

“The fifth anniversary of ROCK ON THE RANGE at Crew Stadium will be the best show yet,” added Mark McCullers, co-executive producer of the festival. “Coming off a record breaking year in 2010, we do not plan on taking our foot off the pedal. The layaway packages will be available prior to the holidays this year, so ‘Rangers’ can give the gift of rock to their friends and family.”
