Mayhem Fest 2013 Kickoff: Machine Head, Job for a Cowboy, Butcher Babies, Huntress + More [Photos]

Located on a field adjacent to the main amphitheater, the Jägermeister Stage at Mayhem Festival’s 2013 kickoff in San Bernardino, Calif., featured a mix of established acts like Machine Head and Job for a Cowboy along with up-and-comers like Butcher Babies, Battlecross and Huntress.

The relentless heat and dust kicked up by the mosh pits did nothing to subdue the crowd, which had banged and crowd-surfed all day long. Cooled and fueled by truckloads of water, beer and energy drinks, the Mayhem mob turned out for all of the bands as well as those on the smaller Sumerian Records stage tucked off to the side.

The open field also featured a midway of band and vendor booths where signings and merch sales took place all day. Check out our photo gallery from the 2013 Mayhem Festival Jagermeister Mobile Stage below.
