This year's installment of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival is currently out causing havoc throughout the States. The main stage headliners are Iowa meta kingpins Slipknot and legendary thrash icons Slayer. Other main stage performers include The Devil Wears Prada, As I Lay Dying and Asking Alexandria.

The Jagermeister Stage is featuring a special headline set by Anthrax, supported by a rotation of The Devil Wears Prada, As I Lay Dying and Asking Alexandria, along with Whitechapel, and the Jagermeister opener.

Contributing Noisecreep photographer Charles Epting was at the June 30 kick off show in San Bernadino, Calif. and shot an exclusive photo gallery for us. Webmasters should email him at this link if you want to hire him to shoot for you too.
