Coming off one of the most successful summers to date with the Mayhem Festival, there was a lot of anticipation for what the inaugural Mayhem Festival Cruise would bring this December.

Unfortunately, however, the voyage has been canceled before things got out of dock. The event was set to leave the Port of Miami on Dec. 7, with the primary stop being in the Bahamas before returning to mainland on Dec. 10.

As for the talent, organizers had lined up Lamb of God, Machine Head, Anthrax, Hatebreed, Suicide Silence, and Kingdom of Sorrow, with each band receiving 90-minute sets, while Gojira, Periphery, Born of Osiris, Battlecross, Otherwise, Girl on Fire, Anti Mortem, and Gypsyhawk were some of the other talent set to play. Plus, JDevil (aka Korn’s Jonathan Davis) and DJ Starscream (aka Slipknot’s Sid Wilson) were on board to play full DJ sets.

Mayhem Festival Cruise organizers issued a statement on the official website about the cancellation, which read:

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we have been forced to cancel the Mayhem Festival Cruise. If you purchased a cruise package, you will be automatically refunded to the credit card you used to purchase. If you used a prepaid card or gift card to purchase the cruise, please contact Rose Tours for your refund (215-663-8800). If you used a credit or debit card, you will see the credit within the next 2 to 3 weeks. We are also offering anyone who purchased a cruise ticket a lifetime complimentary pass to the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Summer Tour.

You will still receive your cruise refund in addition to the lifetime pass to the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Tour. This pass is valid on any tour date beginning in 2013. Details on getting these lifetime passes will be announced shortly.

We apologize for the cancellation.
