4. Motorhead and the Sumerian Records Stage bringing unique opportunity to musicians
When the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival was announcing there lineup back in January fans were intrigued by the announcement of a surprise band that would be announced at a later date. Much to many metal fans surprise, it was legendary band Motorhead.
The delayed announcement may have been due to negotiations between the band and the concert producers. Not only are Motorhead joining this year’s Mayhem Festival as performers, but they will have their very own stage promoted by their record label Sumerian Records. On March 5, the announcement was made that Motorhead will be a part of the main stage line-up. Another surprise announcement was that Sumerian Records and Headbang the Highway will be presenting the Sumerian Records Stage. The label will be bringing Upon a Burning Body, I the Breather, and another TBD act along for the ride.
Not only is the band producing their own stage, but they are also bringing a unique opportunity to fans who are also musicians. Headbang for the Highway will be holding contests all over the U.S. for unsigned bands to win opening spots on the Sumerian Records Stage.
