The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL Takes Off with a Bang in San Bernardino! New Highlight Video Available Now!


The 6th annual ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL took off with a bang in San Bernardino on Saturday! You can check out a brand new highlight video on the official Mayhem YouTube page now, here:

ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is all about safety first and foremost, and we are taking the proper precautions to insure the utmost safety for fans of hard rock and heavy music who will attend the festival. The festival will offer three (3) 20×20 Shade Tents to keep people out of the sun. We will have an army of emergency medics and emergency medical vehicles directly onsite and on hand in the case that anyone has any needs for medical attention at all from the heat.   We always urge fans and notify them accordingly on the official Mayhem website for fans to pace themselves. Please hydrate by drinking lots of water, “wear sunscreen” and think logically and with common sense to enjoy the day and get the full festival experience.
