The seventh annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival brought its incredible lineup and festivities to the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, Illinois on Sunday, July 20, 2014. The annual heavy metal festival was originally created by Kevin Lyman, the Vans Warped Tour founder, and John Reese, who is Lyman’s partner on the Taste of Chaos Tour. Since the festival’s inception it has been notorious for being one of the heaviest music festivals around that always consists of a stellar lineup with metal acts of a variety of sub-genres. This year’s fest was certainly one of the heaviest and most diverse Mayhem Festivals to date. The lineup consisted of Erimha, Islander, Wretched, Ill Nino, Emmure, Upon A Burning Body, Darkest Hour, King 810, Texas Hippie Coalition, Mushroomhead, Miss May I, Veil of Maya, Body Count featuring Ice-T, Suicide Silence, and Cannibal Corpse at one the three side stages with Trivium, Asking Alexandria, Korn, and Avenged Sevenfold headlining on the main stage. On top of the all star lineup spread out amongst four stages, Mayhem Fest also has a wide variety of vendor booths, daily autograph sessions and meet and greets from different bands at each stop, freestyle motocross shows provided by the Metal Mulisha, and much more giving concert goers an experience like no other.
