A difference of vision has caused Rock on the Range founder Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents (DWP) and co-producer AEG Presents to part company.

The 47,000-capacity festival has ended its 12-year run at the MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, and will be rebranded as Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival and held next May at the same venue.

The multi-day, multi-stage event drew a sell-out crowd this year and featured Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Tool, A Perfect Circle Greta Van Fleet, Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, among many others.

“I am so proud of what we accomplished with Rock On The Range, and we could not have done it without our partnership with AEG,” said Wimmer.

“When we started Rock On The Range, there was no other festival in America quite like it, but recently it became clear that we had different visions of where to take the festival next. Sonic Temple Art + Music will be a one-of-a-kind, world class festival.”

No artistes had been announced as Audience went to press.
