Credit: James MinchinThe Rocklahoma 2015 lineup is out, and the bill is headlined by Linkin Park, Godsmack, Slayer and Tesla. Volbeat, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Halestorm, Queensrÿche, Live, Anthrax, Ministry, The Pretty Reckless, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts, Of Mice & Men, In This Moment and many more of today's biggest rock bands also will play the ninth edition of Rocklahoma.

"We literally spend months and months piecing together the exact right mix of artists for Rocklahoma each year," says Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the festival for AEG Live, in a statement. "Linkin Park and Slayer happen to be two of the most requested artists by the fans of Rocklahoma to play, so to get them both at the same time is a major coup. But surrounding them with the exact right element of bands that span the spectrum of classic to current and metal to lighter rock, that’s the key."

Discounted pre-sale tickets are available now via General public ticket sales will begin starting January 26 at noon CT.

Rocklahoma 2015 will be held May 22-24 in Pryor, Oklahoma. That should give Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington plenty of time to heal from the leg injury that forced Linkin Park to cancel shows in Pittsburgh tonight and Albany, New York, tomorrow.
