ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL Announces 2011 Festival Sponsors, Official Band Autograph Signings & Touring Eco Initiatives 


“Side Stage” Now Officially Named the REVOLVER STAGE for 2011 Tour!


The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is pleased to announce this year’s festival sponsors! The 2011 ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is presented by Rockstar Energy Drink. Jägermeister, Revolver, Fuel TV, and Chevy are also sponsoring the tour, along with music and label sponsors Ibanez, NAMM, Sabian, Century Media, Nuclear Blast Records, Metal Blade Records, Roadrunner Records, lifestyle sponsor South Surf, awareness program sponsors Shirts for a Cure and Music Saves Lives, as well as the US Air Force Reserves, Metal Injection, and HollywoodMusic.TV.  See below to learn more about this year’s exciting sponsors, and stay tuned to for more information coming soon.

Rockstar Energy Drink and Jägermeister are presenting exclusive signings at each festival date!  Rockstar Energy Drink has confirmed signings with Machine Head and Suicide Silence, and Jägermeister will be offering signings with Kingdom of Sorrow and Unearth starting at the Boise, ID date through the end of the tour.  Hatebreed will also be taking part in signings on their specific show dates, and Dave Ellefson of Megadeth will be taking part in signings on various dates, as well.  Make sure to swing by the Rockstar and Jägermeister booths at your local festival date to check on signing times.

The Metal Mulisha Jump Team will also be taking part in special autograph signings!  The team will join together for two daily signings after two of their three daily jump shows.  Riders this year include Ryan Hagy, Derek Garland, Wes Agee, Jimmy Hill, and Julian Dessue.  You can find out about signing times and more at your local ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL show date.

This year, the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is taking vigilant steps to reduce the festival’s environmental footprint.  There are many green initiatives that are being put in place at each festival date in order to keep the surrounding environment clean and functioning efficiently!  Some of the resourceful steps that the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is taking this year include using cleaner and environmentally friendly biodiesel fuel in the tour caravan, a Cell Funds donation program organized to raise funds for the Unite the United and Music Saves Lives organizations (fans will receive a Skip-the-Line pass for donating used working, broken, or defective cell phones), and a traveling on-site eco team put in place to make sure the individual venues have all of the recycling receptacles and materials that they need.  Local volunteers will join the festival dates to facilitate recycling onsite!  More initiatives are being planned in addition to the already stellar conservation efforts already in place.

The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is only three weeks away!  Tickets are on sale now, so check in at and for any updates to current ticketing information.

Century Media is delighted to be a part of the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL once again. We are thrilled to add IN FLAMES to the ranks of Century Media artists who have graced the Mayhem stage, and that SUICIDE SILENCE was invited to come back for a repeat performance. Mayhem presents a fantastic opportunity for fans of all types of heavy music to hear their favorite artists and get turned on to new ones.  IN FLAMES and SUICIDE SILENCE are indicative of the breadth of the bands playing this and every year.  Sweden’s IN FLAMES will be touring in support of their vicious new album, Sounds of a Playground Fading. Always a sonic force to be reckoned with, Sounds delivers both the power and catchiness that is the band’s trademark. It’s hard to believe SUICIDE SILENCE burst onto the scene a mere four years ago with their debut game-changer, The Cleansing, which preceded their inaugural appearance at Mayhem. 2009’s No Time to Bleed proved they were no flash in the pan.  With the release of The Black Crown this summer, SUICIDE SILENCE is poised to cement their place in the metal hierarchy.  See you in the sun!

ALL SHALL PERISH will be touring in support of their upcoming monolithic release This Is Where It Ends, and will be playing cuts off that release as well as several other fan favorites. In addition, Nuclear Blast will also have a merch booth at the festival with our friends Century Media Records, selling our latest and greatest releases.
