[Photos] Rock on the Range 2012 Part One

In what seems like a blur, Rock on the Range 2012 has come and gone this past weekend. Over 30 of the top acts in rock invaded Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH. Check out our first gallery of photos from the sixth edition of the festival.

Things kicked off on Friday, May 18, for a free kick off party for fans that bought weekend Rock on the Range tickets. The lineup included AC/DC cover band Hells Bells, Miami metal rockers Black Tide, Wingstock artist Foxy Shazam and hair metal homage outfit Hairball.

Saturday kicked off strong with Adelitas Way taking the main stage at noon. Things kept getting better as the day went on. Additional acts included GRD favorites Halestorm, Theory of a Deadman, Chevelle, Slash, Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown and Incubus. That was just the main stage!

The f.y.e. second stage featured some heavy hitters of its own, including New Medicine, Falling In Reverse, Cavo, P.O.D. and Cypress Hill. Falling In Reverse had to suffer through some technical difficulties during their set. Frontman Ronnie Radke looked visibly upset but kept the energy going. The rest of the band had their own sound problems to deal with, which ultimately cut their set down two songs.

Make sure to keep checking on a regular basis to see part two of our photo gallery and exclusive interviews with bands from Rock on the Range.
