    The Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival is back with a massive four-day 2023 lineup that features headliners Foo Fighters, Tool, Avenged Sevenfold, and KISS. The rock and metal extravaganza takes place May 25th-28th at the Historic Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.

    Essentially taking the place of the long-running Rock on the Range festival, Sonic Temple debuted in 2019, but took the next three years off due to the pandemic.

    Avenged Sevenfold lead the Friday bill alongside Queens of the Stone Age, Chevelle, I Prevail, Knocked Loose, Sleeping With Sirens, Badflower, Dorothy, Converge, Born of Osiris, Band-Maid, Vended, and more.

    Saturday will be toplined by KISS, and preceded by sets from Rob Zombie, Falling in Reverse, Puscifer, Trivium, Black Veil Brides, Rival Sons, Avatar, Senses Fail, From Ashes To New, Giovannie & The Hired Guns, Brutus, and others.

    “We’ve always enjoyed playing Historic Crew Stadium in Columbus and are excited to be a part of this year’s Sonic Temple,” said Avenged Sevenfold singer M. Shadows in a press release. “It’ll be a blast to share the stage with Tool, Foo Fighters and others, we can’t wait to see and play for all of our amazing fans again.”
