There’s something quite peculiar about music festivals and their ability to attract some of the worst weather known to man. Just take the likes of Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds as a pair of prime examples, as well as two of Rock am Ring’s last three editions. Not to mention an unforgettable and lightning-laden Pinkpop in 2014. They all share a penchant for thunder and lightning, just like Rock on the Range unfortunately did yesterday. The second day of the Columbus, OH bash saw a three-hour period of disruption due to stormy conditions, which resulted in cancellations for Bullet For My Valentine and Stick To Your Guns, as well as a shortened headline set from Avenged Sevenfold (above). Christian Sarkine braved the weather to catch some of day two’s best sets.
