About Aftershock Festival
Aftershock Festival Tickets
Monster Energy drink has gotten a lot of slack over the years. Not because it doesn’t work – but because a certain sub-group of young men took the monster symbol and made it their own. And while Monster, we’re sure, doesn’t mind the free marketing – it wants to make sure that young men who love lifting weights and ripping the sleeves off of regular t-shirts aren’t their only brand image.
So what did they do? Starting in 2012, they decided to sponsor a metal festival, in Sacramento California, called it the Aftershock Festival - which is an appropriate name given the seismic activity in California. What started out as a one-night event is now a two-day festival that people fly across the world to experience.
Things to Know About Aftershock
Since Aftershock is a multiple-day festival, a lot of people assume that they can camp out at the event site. That’s not true! There’s no camping or overnight parking at the venue, so keep that in mind. There are, however, plenty of hotels nearby that usually offer some sort of event-weekend deal. But since this event grows exponentially every year, you better book those hotels fast – they book up faster every year.
With the logistics out of the way, let’s talk about the exciting part, who has headlined the festival in the past. 2014 boasted a lineup of Five Finger Death Punch, The Offspring, Tech N9ne, and Rob Zombie, among others. Just a year later, the festival managed to get Slipknot to headline, even though they have their own festival, Knotfest, on the west coast as well. Following years have included headliners like Tool, Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer, Korn, and Nine Inch Nails. If they’re big in the metal music scene, they’ve played at Aftershock.
