In a world without Ozzfest, the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival has taken over as the gigantic, travelling circus of metal every summer in America. It might not have as deep of a lineup as, say, Warped Tour, but the show usually packs in similar crowd sizes and always is one of the most talked-about events of the year. There had been several rumors over the past couple of months as to who would be headlining, but now no further speculation is required! Here’s the full lineup and tour itinerary! Head over the jump to find out more.


Mayhem will be headlined by thrash metal legends Slayer and will also see support come from King Diamond, Hellyeah, The Devil Wears Prada, Whitechapel, Thy Art Is Murder, Jungle Rot, Sister Sin, Sworn In, Shattered Sun, Feed Her to the Sharks, Code Orange, and Kissing Candice.
