RAMMSTEIN a Possibility for Headlining Mayhem Festival 2013
Here is what Reese told Idaho Statesman in a recent interview:
“The very, very top of the bill are the two hardest slots to pick,” event producer John Reese told me Monday. “Because to draw 10,000 to 30,000 people, there has to be some commercial crossover aspect of it.”
There are 20 to 25 bands on the planet that have the drawing power to headline MayhemFest, Reese said, so you have to expect repeat acts. That said, he’s already working on the 2013 bill for MayhemFest and seeking fresh blood.
Reese mentioned one potential future act that fired me up: Rammstein.
“I’m gonna try like hell,” Reese said. “I tried to get them last year.”
