The ninth annual Rock on The Range got off to a fantastic start with a massive line up on day one. We are Harlet and Apocalyptica got the Monster Main Stage up and running early on in the day to a not so scarce crowd. Apocalyptica are no strangers to ROTR, this being their second time playing at the event. They always perform with tons of energy to get the crowd going.The first night of ROTR 2015 was off to a rambunctious start.




Beartooth had a chance to play on the Jager side stage for their home town crowd. The Columbus natives drew a vast audience for their 30 minute set, Rangers are always there to cheer on their home town boys. The guys will be hitting up a few festivals in support of their latest album release, “Disgusting” which is available HERE.




Breaking Benjamin put on an enthusiastic show at ROTR. The crowd was more than eager to sing along to the bands many hits they performed during their set on the Monster Main stage. The band will release its fifth studio album in June 2015 titled Dark Before Dawn following a four-year hiatus.




Yelawolf made their debut performance on the Ernie Ball side stage. In March 2011, Yelawolf signed with Eminem's record label, Shady Records. His latest album, Love Story, was released on April 21, 2015.




One of the main acts of the night was Marilyn Manson, who put on a great show as usual. A perfect act to get the crowd riled up for headliners Slipknot.
