I am TOTALLY bummed about this.  Been meaning to go for years and never did, now it's gone.

Rock On The Range, one of the biggest rock festivals in the country, is calling it quits after 12 years.  Producer Danny Wimmer explained why to blabbermouth.net:

"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," says Danny Wimmer. "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 MAPFRE Stadium."

It's not a total loss, they are at least replacing it with another music and arts festival. We'll have to wait and see if it's as cool as Rock On The Range always was though...
