Two Dozen Noise Complaints Received During Yesterday's 'Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival'

According to the Bangor Daily News, yesterday's (Wednesday, July 17) Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival concert at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion (formerly Bangor Waterfront Park) in Bangor, Maine resulted in about a dozen noise complaints to Bangor Police Department and another 10 to City Manager Cathy Conlow and the city council.

The concert came to an end after headliner ROB ZOMBIE's final song around 10:15 p.m. as an intense thunderstorm hit Bangor.

Bangor city councilors and staff will host a public meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, July 22 at City Hall to discuss what changes might be made to quell noise, according to the Bangor Daily News.

In addition to ROB ZOMBIE, the main stage on this year's Mayhem festival features FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, MASTODON and AMON AMARTH.

"Metal's a hard genre because it always has a smaller pool of headliners," Mayhem organizer Kevin Lyman told The Morning Call about this year's bill. "And they kind of package with each other and do different things."

He added: "We really focused on the second stages and the undercard, trying to deliver the best second stages we can. It's always great to close with ROB ZOMBIE. He's always a great entertainer. And FIVE FINGER, we think we put together the best available package."
