One of the best reasons for you to have a good old fashioned road trip each summer, is the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. Though I would prefer that it stopped in Missoula each year, they will be rolling through Boise, ID and Auburn, WA, if you can afford the gas money.

According to Loudwire.com

For the first time, the Mayhem Festival will play in Bangor, Maine, and Austin, Texas. 2013 also marks a return to Toronto. Who will be playing Mayhem this year? We’ll have to wait until March 18, when the lineup will be unveiled, but organizers promise that “2013 will bring a heart pounding heavy lineup like never before.” There is a short teaser video you can watch below.

One thing we do know is that this year’s festival will have four stages, the most ever. They include The Rockstar Energy Drink main stage, the Jagermeister Festival Stage, the Musician’s Institute Festival Stage and the Sumerian/Headbang for The Highway Stage.

Tickets will be going on sale starting Friday March 22 and 23 with more details coming soon. See the full list of cities and dates below the video:
