The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL will feature some of the most ground-breaking heavy bands of all time, spanning the originating years of heavy metal to today! The show will feature five-time-nominated, two-time Grammy winning legends Slayer as headliner, as well as additional performances from King Diamond, HELLYEAH, The Devil Wears Prada, and Whitechapel.
Kerry King, guitarist of Slayer states, “I don’t know if the third time will be a charm, but it will definitely be hellish! Slayer and King Diamond on stage for the first time together in the States- NEVER has Mayhem been more evil.”
ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL performer and heavy metal hellion King Diamond states, “This is going to be one hot and hellish summer! Slayer and King Diamond on the same stage – it does not get more devilish than this! We will be putting on a one hour set with the full King Diamond stage production. As for a set list, I’m not gonna reveal that here, but it will be built around “Dreams of Horror.” The Puppet Master will be there with Grandma, and we will even go as far back in time as to 1777 (hint). You’re all in for one hell of a show if you come to this Sabbath!”
“It has been eight years and it feels like it started just yesterday. We are so excited about this year’s lineup and having the mighty Slayer back in support of a new album. In addition, the first time for King Diamond and HELLYEAH will be awesome. Heavy music is thriving in America and we are excited to be a part of it,” state John Reese and Kevin Lyman, ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL producers.
The festival will kick off on June 26 at Sleep Train Amphitheater in San Diego and ends at Gexa Energy Amphitheater in Dallas on August 2. Go to www.rockstarmayhemfest.com for more information.
