Two months ago, it was announced that Columbus, Ohio’s Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival would be returning after a three-year hiatus. After a decade of running as Rock on The Range, the festival rebranded to Sonic Temple in 2019 and had a strong debut party.
Sonic Temple will once again take place at the Historic Crew Stadium in Columbus over Memorial Day Weekend, May 25th through May 28th, 2023.
Sonic Temple’s comeback has been one of the most anticipated festivals of the season, and today they officially revealed the full lineup — and it does not disappoint.
Headliners of the festival include Foo Fighters, Tool, Avenged Sevenfold, and KISS. The festival is rounded out by an incredible selection of rock artists that includes Godsmack, Deftones, Rob Zombie, Queens of the Stone Age, Chevelle, Falling In Reerse, Jawbreaker, Knocked Loose, Bullet for my Valentine, Beartooth, Sublime With Rome, and many more.
The full lineup for Sonic Temple can be found below.
Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents and will also feature creative elements designed by acclaimed artist Shepard Fairey. Jose “Metal Ambassador” Mangin will host the event with on-stage appearances and fan meet and greets.
