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.
