Music and FMX

For the past few months, hard music fans across the country have been anxiously awaiting the day when tickets go on sale for the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival featuring KORN and ROB ZOMBIE. The wait is over: tickets for the tour will be available tomorrow, April 2nd, at The Festival, which kicks off Saturday, July 10 in San Bernardino, CA, will tear through 26 cities between early July and late August (a full itinerary is listed below).

As in years past, the third annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival features an electrifying mix of metal’s most influential artists and exciting young voices. This summer’s lineup sees KORN and ROB ZOMBIE joined on the main stage By Lamb Of God and Five Finger Death Punch. The Jagermeister stage will feature Hatebreed, Chimaira, Shadows Fall, Winds Of Plague and the JAGERMEISTER Battle of The Bands Winner. The second stage will spotlight Atreyu, Norma Jean, In This Moment and 3 Inches of Blood.

In addition to the amped excitement, the festival features METAL MULISHA, the World’s Greatest Freestyle Motocross team, and Beacher’s Madhouse, a sexy costume party combined with outrageous variety acts, beautiful dancers, scantily-clad Beacher’s Babies, DJ’s and so much more. Comedian Jay Oakerson (seen on Comedy Central) will also be on hand to deliver an onslaught of unbridled awesomeness and raunchy rock n roll comedy.

This year, fans can also take Festival action to go with the brand-new 2010 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival App for the iPhone/iPod Touch. The app allows users to follow the Mayhem with news feeds, Twitter, artist info as well as artist links, video and a scheduler that you can use to create a "set list" to keep track of what times your favorite bands are playing. The app is available here:

As an added bonus, festival organizers have created a special limited-time 72-hour ticket promotion called "Get Off Your Ass," which provides ticket buyers with a $5 discount off regular prices during the pre-sale period (April 2nd through April 5th). Fans can participate by registering at the media. Once signed up, they’ll gain first access to Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tickets, as well as an opportunity to win two tickets, travel and accommodations to the July 10th kickoff show in San Bernardino.
