It's a 10 hour trip to heavy nirvana. Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival is produced by Rockstar Taste of Chaos organizer John Reese, Vans Warped Tour founder and MusiCares MAP Fund “From the Heart Award” recipient Kevin Lyman and Creative Artists Agency. The trio has made the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival a standout on the summer concert circuit by following the proven model of utilizing sponsorship to deliver a lower ticket price and an enhanced concert experience. This year sees them joining forces once again with Rockstar Energy Drink as the title sponsor. “Metal is ALIVE and WELL in 2011,” states tour producer John Reese. “Each year the tour gets bigger and better and 2011 is no exception. This group of artists this year are going to apply a big, bad, metal shellacking for the fans across the USA and Canada.” “Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival 2011 is a true mix of molten veterans and smoldering up-and-comers, who are bringing their A games and giving the fans nothing less of an amazing day,” adds tour producer Kevin Lyman. In 2008, the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival bulldozed onto the scene and quickly made itself known as the preeminent summer destination for the hard rock and metal community. Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival boasts the most powerful artist line-ups in heavy music. Artists who have performed in Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival’s past include hard music legends SLAYER, SLIPKNOT, MARILYN MANSON, KORN, ROB ZOMBIE, LAMB OF GOD, HATEBREED, CANNIBAL CORPSE, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, MASTODON, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and many more.
