Last week, it was announced that Rammstein’s only United States show would be happening at the inaugural Chicago Open Air music festival this July. Now, festival organizers have unveiled the complete list of other artists that will be joining the Germany-based band at the festival’s first ever incarnation. On Tuesday (Feb. 16), over 40 bands were added to the lineup including acts like Slipknot, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, Of Mice & Men, Bullet for My Valentine, and Chicago’s own Disturbed.
“It is long overdue that one of the greatest rock cities in the world has a festival of its own,” write Disturbed in a press release. “We are honored and excited to be one of the headliners at the inaugural Open Air festival in our hometown of Chicago.”

As a precaution, do not assume that the order of the daily lineup is when each band is actually scheduled to perform.
