The Rockstar Mayhem festival enters its eighth year with another heavy metal and hard rock line-up, featuring 13 bands performing between the main stage and Victory Records stage.

The main stage will feature Slayer as headliner, as well as additional performances from King Diamond, Hellyeah, and The Devil Wears Prada. The Victory Records Stage will feature headliner Whitechapel as well as Thy Art Is Murder, Jungle Rot, Sister Sin, Sworn In, Shattered Sun, Feed Her To The Sharks, Code Orange and Kissing Candice.

Slayer's Kerry King comments: "I don't know if third time will be a charm, but it will definitely be hellish! Slayer and King Diamond on stage for the first time together in the States- NEVER has Mayhem been more evil. DON'T FUCKIN' MISS IT."

King Diamond adds: "This is going to be one hot and hellish summer! Slayer and King Diamond on the same stage - it does not get more devilish than this! We will be putting on a one hour set with the full King Diamond stage production. As for a set list, I'm not gonna reveal that here, but it will be built around 'Dreams of Horror.' The Puppet Master will be there with Grandma, and we will even go as far back in time as to 1777 (hint). You're all in for one hell of a show if you come to this Sabbath!"

So theoretically I could just show up at around 9pm watch King Diamond and Slayer and call it a night. Might just try that. Nothing else on the bill appeals to me even slightly.
