In the same mold as the Warped Tour and Lollapalooza, the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival has become one of the biggest summer tours in the United States since its debut in 2008. The festival is committed to metal and other hardcore punk bands, but over the years it has been home to progressive metal, nu metal, metalcore and other offspring of the original genre.

The festival is usually split into two side stages for up-and-coming and local bands and a main stage for the headliners. The show was put together by Kevin Lyman and John Reese, who achieved success with their work on the Warped Tour and Taste of Chaos tour. Ever since the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival became a summer institution, it has given a jumpstart to aspiring metal musicians and given fans a chance to see all their favorites in the same place.

The original lineup at the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival consisted of SlipKnot, Disturbed, DragonForce and Mastodon, which is widely considered one of the best groupings in the event's history. The function gained serious buzz when SlipKnot signed on to perform, as they had been hard at work in the studio on an album and this was their big return to the concert stage.

Ever since its inception, the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival has been an amorphous process to put together, so no two experiences are ever the same. The 2009 show saw the appearance of Marilyn Manson, Slayer and Killswitch Engage, while the 2010 show expanded into Canada and also featured a bevy of comedic performances and variety shows. The 2011 festival featured the return of Disturbed, as well as heavy metal favorites Godsmack and Megadeth.

The 2012 concert is on the horizon and it already has metal fans all over the United States clamoring to get tickets. The headliners, Slipknot, Slayer and Motorhead will be joined by a stellar lineup of artists including As I Lay Dying, Asking Alexandria and The Devil Wears Prada. The tour will make a 27-date trek across America and will hit many of the most popular stops on the U.S. concert circuit.

Ever since the festival's first tour in 2008, the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival has steadily grown into the largest touring heavy metal music experience in the world. It is one of the highest-grossing tours each summer and looks to continue to enthrall metal audiences with an ever-changing list of talented performers.

Great variety of bands and interesting crowd! Each year Mayhem is a blast. The crowd that shows up is so diverse. From regular clothes to clown or jester suits, girls in petticoats and heels to blue hair and dudes in yellow tutus! There were a few kids there as well. Doors open at 1pm and from then on it is non-stop metal, terrible food, expensive drinks, and a great finish to the night with a few popular headliners. The food and drinks are more a venue problem though, so Mayhem still gets 5 stars! Some of the tents for the smaller stages give away free stuff....I came out of there with a free cd from the victory records stage this year. A friend of mine also got a beer bandana and a won a t-shirt. I love that each band has a tent to buy merch from as well. I missed Metal Mulisha this year, their freestyle motocross is always awesome. Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, Body Count Featuring ICE T, Miss May I, Emmure, Mushroomhead, Texas Hippie Coalition, Veil Of Maya, Upon A Burning Body, Darkest Hour, Ill Nino, Wretched, Islander, King 810, and Erimha were on the smaller stages this year. Trivium, Asking Alexandria, Korn, and Avenged Sevenfold were the main acts. Suicide Silence was definitely my favorite smaller stage show, followed by Texas Hippie Coalition, and Miss May I. King 810 and Islander were also pretty good. Trivium was ok but I was not too into them. Asking Alexandria got thunderstormed out...the show was cut short but they put on a good show too. I was personally only interested in seeing Korn....but Avenged Sevenfold put on a very good show. I did wish Korn has picked more songs I actually knew and there was nothing really spectacular for stage effects or anything. I am into old school Korn and it can't be all old school. A.D.I.D.A.S. would have been awesome. Highlights (bands) Suicide Silence Texas Hippie Coalition Miss May I Korn (the public) -My friends and I were on CoGos lawn for the main shows...and we still managed to have a "mosh pit" beside -There was a man in a yellow tutu (that was it) in a mosh pit , that cracked me up -Guy with gash on his head from the pit asking us to take a picture with his phone -drunk guy next to my car during the rain intermission threw his beer, it exploded on the truck behind him, then he was upset he wasted alcohol. lol. (the weather) It started raining again by the end of the Avenged Sevenfold we started heading back to the car during the last song. My weather app said it was supposed to rain the whole time during the last few shows, but I guess it was saving up for the end.....because all the sudden 1/4 of the way of the long walk to the car, it downpoured like it was a hurricane. Lightning, thunder, wind, I couldn't see anything as we were running to the car. None of us had a dry inch on us and my car was soaked. Then off to the traffic nightmare that is Burgettstown. A Mayhem to remember. And a horrible sunburn to confirm. July 28, 2014
