Mayhem Festival has been postponed.
On Sunday (May 10), the unfortunate news was posted on the festival’s official Instagram account. They posted a picture of Rocky Balboa with the following caption: “As we’re sure you’ve guessed… due to the pandemic we have to sit this summer out, but 2021 we plan on being back in full swing,”
Mayhem was originally planned to make its return this year after a five-year absence. The festival was founded in 2008 by Vans Warped Tour’s Kevin Lyman and his partner John Reese. The festival came to an end in 2015 due to poor attendance.
“Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival 2015 comes to an end,” Reese wrote in a social media post back in August 2015. “All I know is we have all tried our damned hardest to make Mayhem a home for artists, a platform for bands to increase their fan base and a place where people feel welcomed.”
Now, we’ll have to wait another year for Mayhem’s return.
