I’ve been to many concerts: country, heavy metal, blues and even a few rap concerts. I like almost all types of music and typically enjoy seeing groups perform live.
Despite the various shows I’ve seen, I had never been to a music festival until the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival came to Albuquerque. I wasn’t quite sure how long the festival would last, or exactly what to expect. I did know this: in addition to the main stage at the Hard Rock Pavilion, there would be two additional stages on which various bands would perform.
The lineup was packed with heavy metal bands — some well-known and others that were not so well-known. Slipknot headlined the show, but there was much more entertainment for the crowd before they took the stage.
The Sumerian Records stage featured Upon a Burning Body, I The Breather and Dirtfedd. The Jagermeister stage featured As I Lay Dying, Asking Alexandria, White Chapel and Anthrax, while The Devil Wears Prada, Motorhead, Slayer and Slipknot graced the main stage.
The beginning of the festival was rocky. Hundreds of people streamed into the venue, quickly clogging the areas in front of the merchandise booths, hoping to buy T-shirts.
