The full announcement of the lineup and details for the first Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival is coming on Monday, Nov. 26.
Sonic Temple will replace the long-running Rock on the Range festival May 17 to 19, 2019, at Mapfre Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. According to a press release from September, the event will feature a premium food and beverage selection, art installations and expanded onsite experiences to accompany a diverse music lineup.
The rebranding is a result of the split of promoters Danny Wimmer Presents and AEG.
“I am so proud of what we accomplished with Rock on the Range, and we couldn’t have done it without our partnership with AEG,” Danny Wimmer said in September. “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. The city of Columbus and our devoted rock fans deserve a one-of-a-kind, world-class festival, and that is exactly what Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival will bring to Maphre Stadium.”
DWP’s spring festival schedule also includes Welcome to Rockville, May 3 to 5, at Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville, Florida; and a new festival in Rockingham, North Carolina.
The Welcome to Rockville announcement will come on Monday, Dec. 3
In addition, Chicago Open Air will return, presenting a new event called A Day in the Park at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois, during the weekend of May 17 to 19.
