The very first Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival kicked off in Seattle yesterday. It’s put on by the same team that founded some other well-known music festivals like the Vans Warped Tour (AWESOME videos of 2008 Warped Tour here!) & Taste of Chaos Tour so it best be good.
In addition to Slipknot and Disturbed, the main stage features DRAGONFORCE and MASTODON, as well as a JÃ„GERMEISTER second stage with MACHINE HEAD, AIRBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, WALLS OF JERICHO and the JÃ„GERMEISTER Battle of The Bands Winner. There will also be a HOT TOPIC STAGE featuring UNDEROATH, BLACK TIDE, SUICIDE SILENCE, THE RED CHORD and 36 CRAZYFISTS.
