The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL recently announced the addition of MOTÖRHEAD to the 2012 line-up! This marks the first summer tour that MOTÖRHEAD has taken part in for a long time. The legendary metal veterans join the already stellar 2012 main stage line-up, featuring multi-platinum Iowa cult metal groundbreakers SLIPKNOT in the headlining position, as well as legendary thrash metal kings SLAYER—both returning to the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL for a second turn at pummeling fans.
This year, in addition to SLIPKNOT, SLAYER, and MOTÖRHEAD, the main stage will also spotlight a ferocious rotation of today’s best artists, including THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, AS I LAY DYING and ASKING ALEXANDRIA. In 2012 the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL has upgraded the production on the festival stage and this year the JAGERMEISTER STAGE will feature a special headline set by New York metal masters ANTHRAX supported by a rotation of THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, AS I LAY DYING and ASKING ALEXANDRIA, along with WHITECHAPEL, HIGH ON FIRE and the JAGERMEISTER opener. Please note that bands may vary per market.
Also recently announced: Sumerian Records is joining the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL!
