Jagermeister is sponsoring one of two second stages, on which Airbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, 36 Crazyfists and the liquor company's "battle of the bands" winner will perform. On the other side stage, Machine Head, Black Tide, Suicide Silence, the Red Chord and Wall Of Jericho will round out the bill.
