Written by 

Are you ready for one of the most awe-inspiring lineups to hit the U.S festival circuit in the last 10 years?  If your answer is a resounding "Hell Yes", you have come to the right place – Monster Energy’s Fifth Annual AFTERSHOCK Festival.  On October 22nd and 23rd, 35 incredible bands will descend on Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA for what will no doubt be the largest rock festival in California this year.  In addition to the epic slate of performers at this year’s event, festival attendees will be captivated by a slew of interactive on-site experiences designed to engage one’s mind and capture one’s soul from the moment they step foot onto the festival grounds.

Johnny Firecloud of noted, "…Aftershock has found a new thread, and the way they're approaching the festival ecosystem may just defibrillate the soul of rock fests in America. They're mixing vibrant alt rock colors into what was typically a monolithic skull-and-crossbones metal template of black on black, side-stepping the big-box corporate model and building peripheral excitement through on-site activities, enhanced Gourmet Man Food attractions and more.”

Whether you a die-hard rocker or new to the festival scene altogether, Monster Energy’s Fifth Annual AFTERSHOCK Festival will be your opportunity to pay homage to some of the most kick-ass in-your-face bands of all-time.  From the cerebral and visceral sound of Tool to Avenged Sevenfold’s crushing guitar riffs, this year's epic lineup will have something for even the most discerning music fanatic. And in addition to this year’s iconic headliners, metal heavyweights such as Slayer, Korn, Primus, Disturbed, Anthrax, and Ghost will be performing on the main stage this year and are sure to conjure up an energy that will bring the 45,000+ fans off their feet and into a frenzied state of heavy metal bliss. Are you ready to rock?!?!

"We're excited to give fans a once in a lifetime opportunity to see Tool, Avenged Sevenfold, Primus, Slayer, Korn, Disturbed and the rest of this great lineup all together during this special weekend. Discovery Park is such a unique venue that allows us to put on an experience on a grand scale, but in an intimate setting that sets AFTERSHOCK apart," says Monster Energy AFTERSHOCK founder and producer Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents.
