In all, Rock On The Range features three stages, 44 bands, and three days of non-stop rock.

"There are so many incredible bands playing at Rock On The Range this year, and every one of them is significant," says Del Williams, co-executive producer of the event for Right Arm Entertainment. "I think this is the most interesting mix of bands that we have had at the festival. The Rangers already know that the weekend is going to be insanely great, but there will be surprises this year and a certain edge to the lineup that will likely create some of the most memorable moments in the 6 year history of Rock On The Range."
