Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins, and Alice In Chains have been announced for the Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio. The festival will take place May 17th-May 19th. Korn, Bush, Stone Sour, and Cheap Trick will also be playing. Tickets go on sale February 1st. The Smashing Pumpkins will headline Saturday according to their Twitter, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains haven’t revealed what day they’ll be playing yet. I’m pretty sure Soundgarden won’t perform before the Pumpkins though on Saturday. It’ll be interesting to see if Billy Corgan or Chris Cornell take any pot shots at each other during their performances, since Billy has been feuding with Soundgarden since last year.

    no has pearl jam the line-up, lost to grace!
    SG, AIC, SP, 3 bands of stale rock scene, fact :(

  • hey

    No, Brett, actually that wouldn’t be interesting at all. I’m more interested in the MUSIC they will be playing!
    What the hell happened to this site?!

  • Paul

    What is that last comment really?

  • thefreewheelinMarkArm

    I don’t see anything wrong with this story at all. Thanks for posting it! Road trip?!!
    Seriously, if it was 1994 it would be just another day, but these bands all in one place in 2013 is amazing! 2013 has got to be one of the best years for music since the 90’s. Can’t wait for new QOTSA, Tool, PJ.. am I missing any?

  • McShpoochen

    Yes. No way Tool’s album will come out this year. Maybe 2015, knowing how much of a douchebag Maynard is.

  • Patrick

    How awesome would it be if it was all an act, and Chris and Billy made guess appearances with each others bands?

  • SuperSG

    ^^ THAT would be interesting!

  • William

    Soundgarden won’t be performing on that Saturday because they’re already booked for the MMRBQ in NJ that day.

  • Martin

    It’s gonna be ugly. I can see some punches being thrown.

  • bmeade

    Now that won’t be awkward.

  • Justin

    Wow Cheap Trick is going too! Hope I can see some videos of Smashing Pumpkins and Cheap Trick

  • Raj

    Awesome, lucky folks in Columbus Ohio. Regardless of the feud, anyone who is fan of 90’s music will have a great time.

    Off topic question:

    How did Pearl Jam’s Ten sell more than Nirvana’s Nevermind? I like Pearl Jam, and love grunge and all, but I always believed Nirvana was the most popular of all the grunge bands. So how did Ten sell more than Nevermind and go 13x Platinum while Nevermind only went 10x Platinum???

  • NickG

    Haha, ONLY 10x platinum

  • Alternadude

    Fucking best festival line up EVER. WOW!

  • Scott McLean

    This sounds like a lot of fun. I need to go back to Ohio but probably not then. I want to go see the band Family, too, in on Feb. 2 I think it is in England, but that will only be in my dreams.

  • Scott McLean

    I’m listening to Good News Bad News by Family (band) now on YouTube, so I’d advise everyone to check that out.

  • Adam

    Damn, cornell has been hitting the weights in that photo. :-P

    Soundgarden are “great musicians, they should make new music, and hopefully they’ll make great albums, because we need artists to make great albums and great music in this day and age of the robots and the posers and, you know, the ‘faux hawk’ bands.” -Billy Corgan, September 2012

  • Alternadude

    Billy loves Soundgarden. Since the 80’s he’s been saying they Were awesome. And we all know now AIC is one of his favorite band ever. Let’s Forget about the “feud” shall we?
    Thanks versus.

  • Jetro

    Soundgarden and AIC are both playing in Camden, NJ on Saturday the 18th.

  • Fuzzmo

    @Butthead Its because Pearl Jam had a much more mainstream sound that reached broader lamer audiences.

  • Is he one?

    This is indeed the best line-up I have ever seen.

  • Dennis

    Oleander is on the bill! I thought they were dead?

  • GwynnKatie

    Too bad I live so far away.
    This should prove to be an awesome festival.

    They are doing another festival announced today in the States. It makes sense to do a short package tour like AIC/Mastodon in 2010. They split the setlists with hits I suppose. Not too keen on the idea but you can’t be real creative with dual headliners.
