What does the public think of the Lineup?

Well as usual most are disappointed, but I’ve yet to ever see a festival lineup that satisfies everyone. Additionally, after all the complaints are voiced on blogs, forums, etc. the same ignorant masses that bitched about the line-up will still drag their haggard asses down to the festival and have a great fucking time! So before you rant and rave that the line-up is “too main stream…” or that your favorite “hardcore band isn’t there…” take a second to listen to each band’s music, and know that each group is there because they have achieved a certain level of success in the industry.

With that said, I think this line-up is too main stream and my favorite bands aren’t even there!
Hahaha just kidding guys

I think this line-up has a lot to offer. Disturbed and Godsmack are mainstream, YES, okay get over it. They have always put on great shows and will surely up the ante for Mayhem! Then we have the thrash metal legends MEGADETH!!! While I too am curious as to why they are not headlining, I think just the fact that they’re there really improves the quality of the tour.

The supporting bands are very diverse and will surely draw a good crowd. Heavy hitters like Suicide Silence, Trivium, and Machine Head should spark mosh pits that leave the participants dirty, tired, and bloody. Just the way we like it right?

Whether or not the world loves the line-up is yet to be seen (attendance will prove real opinions) but one thing is clear, the bands are pumped and ready for Mayhem!

"Strap yourself in and hold on tight, cuz this ride goes reeeeeal fassst this summer," exclaims Godsmack vocalist Sully Erna. "Godsmack/Disturbed, Mayhem festival!! Can't fu@?kin' wait!!!"

Mainstage guitarist Dan Donegan of Disturbed emotes, "Disturbed is looking forward to being part of the biggest summer tour in the U.S. this year. It's been years since we shared the stage with Godsmack and we've been wanting to team up with them and join forces for a longtime. Megadeth has been a big inspiration to us and we are looking forward to the other bands rounding out what seems to be a solid bill."

Also, mainstage performer Megadeth's lead guitarist and frontman Dave Mustaine adds, "This is going to be a helluva hot summer, and you can get ready for true Mayhem this year."
