The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival is proud to announce the partnership of iHome and Metal of Honor, an awareness and fundraising effort focused on the needs and challenges of active duty military, veterans, and their families.

The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival has supported Hope For The Warriors and the Pathway Home, both national not-for-profit organizations dedicated to the many challenges facing veterans, since their inception.

“Giving back and showing gratitude to those that have sacrificed for all of us and those who continue to sacrifice is the message we want to spread,” comment Mayhem producers John Reese and Kevin Lyman.

As a part of this effort, all ,ilitary personnel will be allowed early entry to the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival shows with military I.D. All military veterans are encouraged to go to the Metal of Honor tent, located in the festival area, to obtain a wristband and information on the various charities supporting their needs.

The wristband will identify military patrons as veterans for the crew, bands, and fellow patrons. If you see a Metal of Honor wristband at the festival, say thank you and acknowledge their service in whatever way you can.

Each veteran over the age of 21 will receive a raffle ticket for a custom Metal of Honor/Jägermeister guitar to be presented to one of these hometown heroes on the main stage to thank them for their service.

A portion of the proceeds of each Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival ticket sold will go to Hope For The Warriors and the Pathway Home to further aid them in continuing their work. In addition, the Metal of Honor in partnership with iHome awareness campaign will include wrapping one of the tour's semi-trucks with logos of the charities, providing nationwide exposure on major highways throughout North America for over six weeks a text-to-donate campaign, and more.
