Heavy music fans in Western New York are often under-served when it comes to summer concerts, which - broadly speaking - tend to favor country music and classic rock artists. So it's big news that the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival has been confirmed for a Tuesday, July 29th stop at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center.
That's the good news. The bad news is, the official lineup for the festival - which last year featured Rob Zombie, Mastodon, Five Finger Death Punch, and others - won't be announced until March 31st. I'll share the details as soon as I get them. In the meantime, metal-lovers, don't forget about the Mastodon/Gojira/Kvelertak triple bill at the Town Ballroom on May 12th.
