In September, we reported on a new music festival called the Sonic Temple Arts & Music Festival, which will be replacing the 12-year old Rock on the Range fest in Columbus, Ohio. In that interview, event producer/promoter Danny Wimmer talked about his plans to integrate gourmet food and beer into the weekend oeuvre, as well as an impressive suite of headliners. "I want to do more than just give [fans] A-plus rock acts — I want to give them an A-plus experience," he said.
Today, we get the full picture of of what the bill looks like, with the announcement that Foo Fighters, Disturbed, and System of a Down will be taking the three nights of the weekend, with the Prodigy, Ghost, and Bring Me the Horizon as the sub-headliners. There will also be a comedy tent, featuring stand-up from Pauly Shore and Andrew Dice Clay, in case it wasn't clear that Wimmer intends to radically redefine what the world expects out of a rock festival. Tickets are on sale now, and the show takes place on May 17-19. Check out the poster and full lineup below.
