Rockstar Mayhem Festival at Cricket Wireless Pavilion Korn, Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, and Lamb of God rocked the hell right out of Cricket Wireless Pavilion. Did you head bang so hard you forgot the concert? Don't worry, we've got you covered...see photos

The scheduled festivities included drag shows, dunk tanks and even sumo wrestling.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
