The History of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival Tour

The Mayhem Festival is a touring metal festival that takes place starting around early July and ending in mid-August. The festival is now a yearly event touring the United States and Quebec, Canada. The Rockstar Mayhem tour is sponsored by the Rockstar Energy Company. It was assembled by Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman, and by John Reese (who is Lyman’s partner on the Taste of Chaos tour)

All of the touring groups that participate can be classified as hard rock, and most are considered metal. The bands represent a broad range of sub-genres, including thrash metal, death metal, nu metal, metalcore, deathcore, power metal, industrial metal, and more. A significant majority of the featured acts originate in the United States; however, Mayhem Festival has previously featured one band each from England, Wales, Australia, Poland, and Canada in its history. Five Finger Death Punch is the only band that appeared as a touring act on multiple years

Each year the festival has the Metal Mulisha as a side attraction for the fans to watch. The festival has featured three separate stages each year since the time of its inception: the Main Stage, the Jägermeister Stage, and the Hot Topic Stage (2008-2009). The Silver Star Stage has replaced the Hot Topic Stage as of 2010. Most bands that participate on the tour have a public meet-and-greet at scheduled times throughout the day, upon each tour date.
