Rock on the Range, one of the top destination rock music fests in the United States, will make its Canadian debut on June 27 at Canad Inn Stadium in Winnipeg, MB, marking Winnipeg’s first major rock festival in more than 10 years. Billy Talent, touring partners Rise Against and Rancid, Theory of a Deadman, and Shinedown are among the more than two dozen acts to perform on two stages.
Tickets and VIP Packages go on sale March 28 on the official ROTR Web site and at Ticketmaster Canada. Ticket prices start as low as $29.50.
Right Arm Entertainment and True North are presenting the music and lifestyle event. “We are excited to bring the successful brand, Rock on the Range, into Canada,” said the event’s executive producer, Del Williams of Right Arm Entertainment, in a statement.
Williams continued, “ROTR USA has quickly become the American festival destination for the true rock fan, and we want ROTR Canada to be the same for not only Manitoba Province but for the entire country. A priority for us is to provide the best possible line up at an affordable price. ROTR Canada will be a festival the real rock music fan can count on year after year.”
The third annual American ROTR festival takes place on May 16-17 in Columbus, OH.
