LOS ANGELES, CA (January 28, 2009) – Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, the most electrifying carnival to ever hit the summer concert circuit, is back…and bigger. Organizers of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival announced today that hard music legends MARILYN MANSON and SLAYER will top the bill on this year’s highly anticipated tour, which is set to kick off July 10 at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Sacramento, CA. The festival will tear through 27 cities in the U.S. and Canada. Mayhem tickets will go on sale to the public on April 24—check www.mayhemfest.com and www.livenation.com for more info

Like last year’s Godzillian-sized lineup, the second annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival will feature a gaggle of rock’s heaviest bands: the main stage will see Marilyn Manson and Slayer joined by BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE and a special guest that will be announced in the coming weeks; the Jägermeister stage will feature TRIVIUM, ALL THAT REMAINS, GOD FORBID and the Jägermeister Battle of the Bands winner; the Hot Topic stage will feature extreme metal bands CANNIBAL CORPSE, JOB FOR A COWBOY, BEHEMOTH, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and WHITECHAPEL. The World’s Greatest Freestyle Motocross team METAL MULISHA will also be revving up the crowd with their unique style of death-defying motorcycle stunts on all dates.

In addition to catching a slew of speaker-shredding performances, fans can take part in a number of festival activities, including playing the newest video games, perusing vendors, attending autograph signing sessions and a host of other interactive activities that will add to the festival experience.

Stage sponsor Jägermeister will be sampling their products and providing fun surprises for attendees. “Jägermeister is proud to once again be working with Mayhem and its great staff of people in 2009,” says Rick Zeiler, Jägermeister Director of Strategic Marketing. “We plan to not only rock our million dollar mobile stage again this year but Slayer‘s Kerry King and a host of other great bands have agreed to sign autographs at our activation booth. Once again Jagermeister and Mayhem will prove to be a marriage made in heaven.”
