System Of A Down's Shavo Odadjian says, "Although in its inaugural year, Sonic Temple's pedigree is proven, and its roots are strong; it made total sense for us to be involved. One could argue that it was a long time coming. We'll see you all in Columbus this May."

David Draiman of Disturbed says, "We are honored to share the stage with all of our amazingly talented friends and colleagues at the upcoming Sonic Temple Festival in Columbus, Ohio. Are You Ready?!?!"

Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents said, "I am so proud of what we accomplished with Rock On The Range, and with the debut of our new festival, Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival, we're excited to bring our devoted rock fans and the city of Columbus a one-of-a-kind, world-class event that expands on the festival experience. The idea behind Sonic Temple is walking into something bigger than yourself, where YOU belong, or where you were always meant to be. The crowd is unparalleled, and the energy is electrifying, like going to a place of worship. We want this festival to be a temple of rock n' roll. We want this to be the ultimate rock experience for the true fans who love the genre as much as we do."
