Following a sold-out crowd of 60,000 last year, Sacramento, California’s Aftershock Festival expands to three full days for 2019. The eighth annual edition of California’s rock festival, produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, will take place on Friday October 11th, Saturday, October 12th, and Sunday, October 13th at Sacramento’s Discovery Park. VIP and General Admission tickets, as well as hotel packages, for Aftershock will be available beginning on Friday, April 26th at 12:00 PM PT. Visit www.AftershockFestival.com for more details.
Some of the big names featured at this year’s event include Tool, Slipknot, blink–182, Korn, Rob Zombie, Staind (re-immerging after a five-year hiatus), Bring Me the Horizon, A Day to Remember, Marilyn Manson, Lamb of God, Halestorm, Dropkick Murphys, BABYMETAL, Bad Religion, Stone Temple Pilots, and many more.
Brian “Head” Welch (Korn) says, “Aftershock Festival is always a unique experience for Korn compared to other festivals. One of the main reasons is we have many friends and family that live near Sacto, so it’s always like a family reunion when we play Aftershock. We’ve been gone a while and we’re coming back this year with a new album, new stage look, and a new excitement that is very contagious! We feel like we are on fire right now and our fans are gonna be fuel for the flames!”
