The 26-date tour, which kicks off on July 5 in San Bernardino, CA , will include over 20 hard rock bands playing four different stages. It’s the biggest lineup the seven-year festival has ever seen, which wasn’t lost on its promoters.
“We are very excited that in the seventh year of the festival we can bring our biggest lineup ever to heavy music fans across North America,” festival producers John Reese and Kevin Lyman said in a statement. “With such a diverse lineup of great bands and festival attractions, 2014 will give fans an awesome day of Metal and Mayhem.”
Other artists on the bill include Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, Miss May I, Mushroomhead, Texas Hippie Coalition, King 810, Body Count featuring Ice-T, Upon A Burning Body, Veil of Maya, Darkest Hour, Emmure, Ill Nino, Wretched, Islander, Erimha and a local winner in each city.
Tickets for all dates go on sale April 10 at 10 am.
