Intaction exhibited at the July 23 Mayhem Festival at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel NJ. The Mayhem Festival is a touring metal festival that takes place during the summer. The festival is an annual event across the United States and Canada. The tour is sponsored by the Rockstar Energy Company, and features headlining hard rock acts like Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, and Mastodon.
With an attendance of over 20,000 people, Intaction was present to help young men understand the issue. Some didn’t even know what was done to them, or what circumcision involved. Many people came over to the Intaction tent and spoke to us. The crowd was interested in learning more about the issues. A few guys were brave enough to tell us that they were intact, and they would never give up their foreskin. One mother (who was attending the show with her son) said apologetically, ” I’m sorry that I had my son circumcised, I didn’t know any better at the time.”
