So long Rock on the Range, hello Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival. The new hard rock gathering will take place in Columbus, Ohio, on May 17, 18 and 19 at the MAPFRE Stadium outside the city with a lineup that includes the Foo Fighters, Disturbed, a reunited System of a Down, Bring Me The Horizon, Ghost, The Prodigy, Halestorm, Lamb of God, Chevelle, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, The Cult and many more playing on three stages.

The event, which replaces Rock on the Range after the latter's 12-year run, will also feature a SiriusXM Comedy & Spoken Word Tent (Andrew Dice Clay, Pauly Shore, Henry Rollins), as well as premium food and beverage options (Buckeye Donuts, Chicago's Dog House, Coustins Maine Lobster, Ena's Caribbean Kitchen, Hangry City), art installations and enhanced on-site experiences, according to a press release announcing the event.

General admission, VIP and Premium VIP tickets will go on sale on Nov. 30 at noon ET here.

Though currently on a decade-plus recording hiatus, System of a Down recently reunited for a string of shows and the Sonic Temple gig marks the only performance on their 2019 schedule to date. "Although in its inaugural year, Sonic Temple’s pedigree is proven, and its roots are strong; it made total sense for us to be involved. One could argue that it was a long time coming. We’ll see you all in Columbus this May," said bassist Shavo Odadjian in a statement about the first year of the Danny Wimmer Presents festival.

Other acts slated to appear include: In This Moment, The Hives, Gojira, The Distillers, Meshuggah, Action Bronson, The Struts, Refused, Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, Black Label Society, Beartooth, Scars on Broadway, Architects and Tom Morello.
