|In the world of heavy metal, few events stand as tall as the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. Held every year at venues across the United States and Canada, this popular tour has featured some of the biggest names in the music world. Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival tickets will give fans the chance to see the likes of big name bands such as Disturbed and Godsmack.
The festival, which tours North America throughout July and August, was the idea of Kevin Lynam. Lynam is certainly no stranger to putting on a good show - he was also the driving force behind the wildly popular Vans Warped Tour, which has been a mainstay of the summer concert circuit since 1995. He also founded the hardcore Taste of Chaos tour, which started in 2005.
The Mayhem Festival might be Lynam's latest creation but it has also been one of the most successful. Right away it was a big hit among heavy metal fans and attracted a large number of big names. Slipknot headlined the show in its inaugural year, and since then organizers have managed to get everyone from Marilyn Manson to Korn to take the stage.
As one of the preeminent metal festivals of the summer concert season, the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival has attracted many of the biggest names in the industry.
