Major Metal and Rock Lineup for the 2013 Mayhem Festival

Rockstar Energy has been putting on the Mayhem Festival for the last five years, but 2013 has shaped up to be the heaviest metal set yet. With four stages being shredded by today’s best bands there will be more than enough metal to satisfy even the most diehard pit goers. This year’s lineup includes:

  • Rob Zombie
  • Five Finger Death Punch
  • Mastodon
  • Amon Amarth
  • Machine Head
  • Children of Bodom
  • Attika 7
  • Job for a Cowboy
  • Emmure
  • Born of Osiris
  • Motionless in White
  • Butcher Babies
  • Battlecross
  • Huntress
  • Thrown Into Exile
  • City in the Sea

You’ll also be able to catch the San Antonio winners of the Headbang for the Highway battle of the bands contest. They’ll make an appearance on the Sumerian Records stage.

Metal Mulisha Entertains Off-Stage

When you can break away from moshing make sure to check out the Metal Mulisha riders as they put the ‘death’ in death metal. If you’ve seen these extreme dirt bikers at previous Mayhem fests or a Nuclear Cowboys show you know how awesome it is to see how far they push the boundaries.

Each year the Metal Mulisha pulls out a new arsenal of jumps that defy gravity. But don’t be surprised to see them jumping into the mosh pit as well.

Meet and Greet With Your Favorite Metal Band Members

The Mayhem Festival isn’t some pretentious high-priced get together for bands that feel like they’re too good to mingle with their fans. Metal lovers are hardcore, which is why many of the bands plan to have public meet-and-greets during the festival.

So grab a Rockstar Energy drink and line up to see some of metal’s biggest names up close at the Mayhem Festival this August at the Austin360 Ampitheater.
