Rockstar Mayhem Festival, the heralded hard rock and metal event of the summer, is swiftly becoming the heavy music fans' summertime rite of passage. Today, the 4th annual summertime juggernaut announced the 2011 line-up with Disturbed, Godsmack and Megadeth, joined by Machine Head, In Flames, Trivium, and many more of today's most electrifying artists. The tour will make a 26-date trek across the country beginning on July 9th at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California.
"Machine Head are thrilled to once again be a part of what has become the undisputed king of metal and rock festivals in the U.S., Mayhem," states Machine Head frontman and guitarist Robb Flynn. "Our run headlining the Jagermeister stage in 2008 was one of the wildest and most inspiring tours we have ever been a part of. We became friends with so many great bands and Mulisha dudes. We all partied, and rode what would become an incredible wave of momentum for Machine Head. The vibe on the tour was filled with an impressive amount of goodwill due to the attention to detail and hard work of John Reese and Kevin Lyman. Machine Head will do everything in our power to make this fucking huge!!! Bring on the summer!"
As part of a rotating slot, Machine Head will be opening the Main Stage for the first 9 shows, including their hometown stop in the Bay Area at the Shoreline Amphitheatre on July 10th, and then will be headlining the Extreme Stage for the remaining 17 shows.
