After a three-year hiatus, the hard rock Sonic Temple Arts + Music Festival 2023 returns. From May 25-28, the genre’s biggest acts – including Foo Fighters, Tool, Avenged Sevenfold and KISS – will perform at Historic Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.
As well as being the festival’s first event since 2019, Sonic Temple 2023 is a remarkable show for the Foo Fighters, who return to the stage with a series of summer festival performances following the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins in 2022.
