The heavy metal rock festival will also feature Rockstar Metal Mulisha Jump Team, the World's Greatest Freestyle Motocross team.
Some of the mainstage acts have voiced their excitement about the festival.
Machine Head frontman and guitarist Robb Flynn says, "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. 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 making this f*&#ing huge!! Bring on the summer!"
Additionally, Disturbed guitarist shares, "Disturbed is looking forward to being part of the biggest summer tour in the U.S. this year. It's been years since we shared the stage with Godsmack and we've been wanting to team up with them and join forces for a long time. Megadeth has been a big inspiration to us and we are looking forward to the other bands rounding out what seems to be a solid bill."
