AEG Live–producers of many of the most compelling rock festivals in the U.S., including Rock On The Range, Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion, Rocklahoma and River City Rockfest–have announced the first annual Texas Mutiny festival, to be held Saturday, September 24 on the outer grounds at Texas Motor Speedway in Dallas-Fort Worth, TX.
The newest rock and camping festival to hit the Lone Star State promises a day of absolute music mutiny with over 12 hours of nonstop music on three stages from Avenged Sevenfold, Deftones, Chevelle, Pierce The Veil, Hellyeah, Of Mice & Men, Ghost, Candlebox, Nothing More, Starset, The Amity Affliction, Skindred, KYNG, Neck Deep, Shaman’s Harvest, Avatar, Twelve Foot Ninja, September Mourning, and more.
“Considering the ongoing success we’ve had in Dallas for years with Edgefest and the new success story this year with Off The Rails, the DFW market is one that is primed and ready for a top-notch hard rock festival,” commented Joe Litvag, Executive Producer of Texas Mutiny for AEG Live. “We’re taking successful components from several of our other similar rock festivals to create an experience for music fans that is uniquely Texas. Our hope is that this is the first step toward establishing a long legacy that rock artists and rock fans in the Lone Star State can call their own!”
“AEG Live is one of the premier producers of rock festivals in the U.S., and we’re pleased to partner with them on one that reaches the hard rock audience,” Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said. “Charlotte Motor Speedway, our sister venue in the Speedway Motorsports, Inc. family, has partnered with AEG Live for the Carolina Rebellion music festival since 2013 and we’re looking forward to hosting an equally successful event in the inaugural Texas Mutiny.”

My favorite time of the year, the annual MayhemFest, kicked off its 6th tour in San Bernardino on June 29th, 2013. What better way to spend a scorching hot summer day than with thousands of sweaty metalheads in the dirt and completely unleash the beast within! This year’s lineup was extra HEAVY! I caught full sets of BattleCross, Son of Osirus, Machine Head, and Children of Bodom on both the Jagermeister stage and the Musician Institute stage. I also caught a few songs from Job For a Cowboy‘s set, which I enjoyed tremendously. My green VIP wrist band gave me access backstage, where I ran into a few of my favorite metal dudes. Right before Machine Head was to hit the stage, I saw Phil Demmel and we started talking. All of a sudden, Jason Hook of Five Finger Death Punch rides up on a green dirt bike. I stopped him and asked him to join us in a photo-op and he was down! Totally surreal and way cool of him! Everyone was in a good mood despite the heat! Machine Head really killed it with a powerful performance and killer stage set up. I was rocking out on stage with them, looking out at the sea of metalheads crowd surfing to the almighty Rob Flynn. The crowd surfing was out of control! I have never seen so many girls crowd surf at a metal show. Everyone was going nuts, but at the same time making sure no one was getting hurt. Backstage, I ran into Mike Faley of Metal Blade Records. He was keeping cool in a seat in the shade. I told him how sick BatterCross’s performance was and he agreed! In a previous interview I had with Brian Slagel of Metal Blade Records, he mentioned how much he liked BattleCross and to keep a look out for them this summer. He was right, I was blown away. I bought a CD and a T-shirt form the lead singer, Kyle “Gumby” Gunther and had the band sign it! I am digging the new BattleCross album “War of Will.” It’s intense! Another band I’ve never seen live that I am now totally into is Born of Osiris! Pretty powerful how they mix in beats and keyboard! Children of Bodom played last on the Music Institute Stage. Alexi Laiho can do no wrong. He is the ultimate shredder! Continue reading
