Following a three-year hiatus, the hard rock Sonic Temple Arts + Music Festival is set to return in 2023. From May 25th to 28th, the genre’s biggest acts — Foo Fighters, Tool, Avenged Sevenfold, and KISS, among them — will perform at the Historic Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.
In addition to being the festival’s first run since 2019, the 2023 Sonic Temple is a notable show for Foo Fighters, who are returning to the stage following the 2022 death of drummer Taylor Hawkins with a slew of summer festival appearances.
