The third Annual MTS Rock On The Range Canada is set for Saturday, August 20th at Canada Inns Stadium in Winnipeg, Manitoba, centrally located in the heart of Canada. Canada's "Biggest Day of Rock" will feature a stellar lineup, including headliners Alice In Chains (marking their first headlining appearance in the province of Manitoba), Evanescence (first live performance of the year), Sum 41, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Hinder, Anberlin and more.
MTS Rock On The Range Canada--presented by Right Arm Entertainment, Inc. and True North Sports & Entertainment Limited--will include 14 bands spread across two stages: the Monster Energy Main Stage and the Jägermeister Stage. The full lineup will be announced in the coming months. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 15th at 10 AM CST at all Ticketmaster.ca outlets.

"It's always extra special when we can headline in a city where we've never been," said Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains. "I'm pretty sure this will be our first gig ever in Winnipeg, and MTS Rock On The Range Canada is the perfect show for us play. We can't wait."
"MTS Rock On The Range is Canada's premier Rock festival, with a great lineup at an incredibly low ticket price," says event co-producer Del Williams of Los Angeles based Right Arm Entertainment, Inc. "All the bands have made an earnest pledge to deliver unforgettable performances for the Canadian ‘Rangers.' It is going to be personal. The objective is to make August 20th the best day of Rock that Winnipeg has ever had." That's a big undertaking but I think ROTR will succeed in making August 20th the gold standard for rock days in Winnipeg.
