Avenged Sevenfold, Deftones + Chevelle Lead Inaugural Texas Mutiny Festival
AEG Live, who've brought you Rock on the Range, Carolina Rebellion, Rocklahoma and other major music events, are expanding their festival umbrella to include the first ever Texas Mutiny. The day-long concert will take place Saturday, Sept. 24 at the Texas Motor Speedway in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.
Heading up the bill will be Avenged Sevenfold, who are reportedly working on a new album, as well as Deftones who just released their Gore disc and Chicago-based rock vets Chevelle who are also working on new music.
Other bands of note on the bill include Pierce the Veil, Hellyeah, Of Mice & Men, Ghost, Candlebox, Nothing More, Starset, The Amity Affliction, Skindred, Kyng, Neck Deep, Shaman's Harvest, Avatar, Twelve Foot Ninja, September Mourning and more.
"Considering the ongoing success we’ve had in Dallas for years with Edgefest and the new success story this year with Off The Rails, the DFW market is one that is primed and ready for a top-notch hard rock festival," commented Joe Litvag, Executive Producer of Texas Mutiny for AEG Live. "We’re taking successful components from several of our other similar rock festivals to create an experience for music fans that is uniquely Texas. Our hope is that this is the first step toward establishing a long legacy that rock artists and rock fans in the Lone Star State can call their own!"
"AEG Live is one of the premier producers of rock festivals in the U.S., and we’re pleased to partner with them on one that reaches the hard rock audience,” Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said. “Charlotte Motor Speedway, our sister venue in the Speedway Motorsports, Inc. family, has partnered with AEG Live for the Carolina Rebellion music festival since 2013 and we’re looking forward to hosting an equally successful event in the inaugural Texas Mutiny."
Specially priced general admission and VIP tickets will be available from Wednesday, May 4 at 10AM CT through Friday, May 6 at 9:59AM CT at the Texas Mutiny website.
