Aftershock Festival is gearing up for another high octane year, and this lineup might be its best yet. The three-day festival will bring rock heavyweights to California's capital, as Tool, Slipknot, blink-182, Rob Zombie, Korn, and Staind are all set to headline the event.
“Aftershock Festival is always a unique experience for Korn compared to other festivals," Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch said of the festival. "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!”
Aftershock Festival is set to go down October 11-13 at Sacramento's Discovery Park. Tickets go on sale this Friday (April 26) via the festival’s website.
