The world’s biggest heavy music touring festival, the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL in its seventh annual sojourn, is pleased to announce the official 2014 artist line-up with the boldest, largest, loudest and most diverse lineup to date! Not only will this year’s festival include the massive ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAIN STAGE and COLDCOCK AMERICAN HERBAL FLAVORED WHISKEY STAGE, but will also present two additional stages— the SUMERIAN RECORDS/HEADBANG FOR THE HIGHWAY STAGE, and the VICTORY RECORDS STAGE.
The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAIN STAGE will boast a collection of some of the biggest bands in heavy music—including multi-platinum headliners Avenged Sevenfold, as well as Korn, Asking Alexandria and Trivium. The COLDCOCK AMERICAN HERBAL FLAVORED WHISKEY STAGE will feature headliner Cannibal Corpse as well as Suicide Silence (featuring new singer Eddie Hermida), Miss May I, Mushroomhead, Texas Hippie Coalition and King 810. THE SUMERIAN RECORDS/HEADBANG FOR THE HIGHWAY STAGE will feature headliner Body Count featuring Ice-T as well as Upon A Burning Body, Veil of Maya, Darkest Hour and the local Headbang For The Highway winner. The VICTORY RECORDS STAGE will feature headliner and Revolver Magazine cover band Emmure as well as Ill Nino, Wretched, Islander, and Erimha.
“We are very excited that in the seventh year of the festival we can bring our biggest lineup ever to heavy music fans across North America. With such a diverse lineup of great bands and festival attractions, 2014 will give fans an awesome day of Metal and Mayhem.” – John Reese and Kevin Lyman, Festival Producers
