Mayhem Festival

Remove Asking Alexandria and The Devil Wears Prada

    1. Petition by

      Bill Smith

As someone who has attended the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival every year, I am very displeased in the organizers for getting Asking Alexandria and The Devil Wears Prada. Those two bands do not appeal to the Mayhem Festival demographic and more geared towards the Vans Warped Tour. For example, bands like Children of Bodom and Devildriver are bands that appeal to Mayhem Festival’s demographic and still draw a lot of people. And our satisfaction isn’t our only concern. We are concerned about the safety of the fans that will come to the festival for Asking Alexandria and The Devil Wears Prada. It’s a known fact that bands like Slayer, Slipknot, and Anthrax have rowdy fans, who are not fans of AA and TDWP, and it’s very probable that fights could ensue between the two demographics. So, we ask that Asking Alexandria and The Devil Wears Prada be pulled from the festival, not only for the satisfaction of the average Mayhem Fest-goer, but for the safety of the kids who come to see those two bands.

      The bands are shit and don't deserve a spot amongst real metal bands.

      Im a diehard metal fan and I have never been to mayhem festival yet. I was looking forward to going then I saw 2 bands that I cant stand its bullshit that they are on this festival. Why cant we get overkill or annihilator on there. I dont think I will be attending this once again because of these 2 bands.

      I thought the Mayhem Festival was about metal. These bands are not metal. It's like having Kid Rock and Nickelback play Wacken Open Air or Bloodstock.. there's no reason for these bands to be on the tour unless to prove this is soley a money making operation. BTW, the creator of this petition is right.. Slayer and Anthrax fans will get into confrontations with those stupid kids showing up for AA and TDWP, myself being one of them. I am not in the mood to see stupid emo kids getting in my way while I'm trying to mosh. Boot these fuckers off the tour and let's get some METAL on here. If not, I dunno about the rest of you, but I'm seeing ONLY the Metal Alliance tour because REAL METAL bands are playing that tour!!!

      AA and TDWP simply don't fit with the Mayhem Fest metal genres. I'm going regardless, but this has always been the one festival in my area where I like all the bands, until now.
