Back in January, we first announced that the Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival would be making a return trip to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs. The date for the Spa City tourstop was revealed to be Saturday, July 20. At the time, however, none of the bands slated to perform at the fest were announced.
That all changed earlier today when the roster of bands for the 2013 Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival were officially announced.
For the first time, this year’s tour will feature four stages – the Rockstar Energy Drink Main Stage, the Jagermeister Stage, the Musicians Institute Stage and the Sumerian/Headbang For the Highway Concourse Stage, which will feature local bands performing and announced in June.
