This years Rock on The Range had a large task before them for this years’ weekend. They had set the bar so high with last years lineup that they had to try and top that for this year. After the weekend I think it’s safe to say that they have met their goal if not broke even. 

2018 ROTR hosted names such as Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Stone Sour, Breaking Benjamin, Machine Gun Kelly and Babymetal.  Maynard James Keenan also performed with two out of three of his fronted bands.  A Perfect Circle performed on the Monster Main stage on Friday while Tool closed out the weekend on Sunday evening. 

Friday’s stages hosted The Fever 333, 10 Years, Power Trip, Greta Van Fleet, Machine Gun Kelly, Breaking Benjamin, Underoath, & A Perfect Circle.

Saturday ended late for most people with a lengthy storm delay and evacuation. The stages were filled with bands that may be familiar to you. Wilson, Asking Alexandria, Miss May I, Three Days Grace, Trivium, Andrew W.K., & Stone Sour.

The final day of the most metal weekend ended with a bang.  The fans witnessed sets from Joyous Wolf, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedowns, Shaman’s Harvest, Red Sun Rising, We Came As Romans, I Prevail, The Used, Yelawolf, Godsmack, & Tool.
