It’s the weekend that metalheads and rock fans alike are all looking forward to, Rock on the Range. The three-day hard rock festival will take place again this year in Columbus, Ohio, with a packed bill that includes rock titans like Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park, Judas Priest and Slipknot.

ROTR is undoubtedly one of the best rock-oriented festivals in the nation, and since it is a three-day event full of the heaviest rock around (and comedy), attendees and the artists themselves are beginning to gear up for the long haul. Here’s how some fans and performers are getting ready for the big weekend.

A lot of the Rock on the Range acts are currently in the middle of tours, meaning that a lot of performers will definitely be bringing their A-game.
