NEW BANDS ADDED TO LINEUP FOR 1st ROCK ON THE RANGE CANADA

AMERICA’S ROCK FESTIVAL MAKES DEBUT NORTH OF THE BORDER SATURDAY, JUNE 27th AT WINNIPEG’S CANAD INNS STADIUM

ROCK ON THE RANGE–America’s premiere destination rock festival makes its Canadian debut on June 27th at Winnipeg, Manitoba’s Canad Inns Stadium. The 2009 lineup for the nationally-renowned festival will be highlighted by performances from some of rock’s biggest artists around the world including Billy Talent, Rise Against, Rancid, Theory Of A Deadman and Shinedown. The festival is pleased to announce two additions to the lineup: L.A. Myspace sensation Hollywood Undead and Michigan rock group Pop Evil, whose song “100 in a 55” is a Top 10 rock hit.  Presented by Right Arm Entertainment and True North Sports & Entertainment Ltd, the one-day, two-stage music and lifestyle event features a potent lineup of more than a dozen bands.

In addition to the music, ROTR Canada will be doing its part to go green.  Festival-goers can deposit their old, unused and broken cell phones at special drop-off boxes inside the stadium in return for ROTR awards points redeemable for a variety of prizes.

The third American version of the festival will take place on May 16-17 in Columbus, Ohio.  Last year’s event drew more than 50,00 people.
