Mayhem Festival Teases a Comeback in 2020


In a new post to social media today Mayhem Festival has teased a comeback in 2020. “Don’t call it a comeback.” reads the official Instagram page of Mayhem Fest, with the hashtag #mayhemfest2020 according to a report by Metal Injection. In a story Ghost Cult broke several months ago, Mayhem Fest co-founders Kevin Lyman and John Reece had been in talks about bringing the fest back. Reece even polled his fans to see if they wanted it back AFTER our news story broke. The final Mayhemfest wrapped in 2015 with Slayer and King Diamond co-headlining. Lyman’s Warped Tour celebrated 25 years this past summer with a final few all-day festival dates, but not a cross country tour. Perhaps Mayhem Festival will return as an all-dayer or an all-weekend destination fest like Lollapalooza did.
