The Mayhem Fest 2014 lineup has been revealed. Well, if we can pretend for a second that Trivium's Matt Heafy didn't spoil the surprise earlier today, we now have official confirmation of the entire lineup to the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest 2014, with a few new tidbits of info from the tour promoters.
As expected, the headliners are Avenged Sevenfold and Korn, and I can assume the other two main-stage acts will be Asking Alexandria and Trivium. I assume this because their logos are on the flyer, as opposed to just their name in the standard font.
Mayhem Fest promises four stages this year, the Mayhem Fest main stage, the Coldcock Whiskey stage, the Sumerian Records stage and the Victory Records stage. Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, Body Count Featuring ICE T, Miss May I, Emmure, Mushroomhead, Texas Hippie Coalition, Veil Of Maya, Upon A Burning Body, Darkest Hour, Ill Nino, Wretched, Islander, King 810 and Erimha will be split amongst those stages.
Based on the stage sponsorships, it's safe to say that Body Count, Veil of Maya, Upon A Burning Body and Darkest Hour will be on the Sumerian stage and Emmure, Wretched, Ill Nino, Islander and Erimha on the Victory stage.
By process of elimination, the Coldcock stage would have Cannibal Corpse, Suicide silence, Miss May I, Mushroomhead, Texas Hippie Coalition and maybe King 810.
