2024 ‘Mayhem Fest’ Lineup Rumors Heat Up


To no one’s surprise, lineup rumors for this year’s return of the ‘Mayhem Festival‘ have been swirling, and organizers behind the festival have been helping drum up the hype. As revealed yesterday (May 30th,) the once annual summer festival will be returning this year for the first time since 2015.

This new incarnation is being overseen by Ash Avildsen (Sumerian Records/’The Summer Slaughter Tour‘, etc.) and more. The festival itself was originally co-founded by Kevin Lyman of ‘Vans Warped Tour‘ fame and John Reese back in 2015.

This fall’s comeback will materialize in the form of a one-off event set to take place in Southern California on October 12th. It has since been confirmed that two artists will co-headline this year’s event, with 23 bands in total set to perform.

As history as shown, Avildsen rarely shies away from teasing his festival lineups and thus, there’s been some potential hints at who you can expect to play this year, thanks to some fan interaction on the festival’s Instagram.
