The summer music festival season has wound down and as we head into Fall there are only a few signature outdoor Rock events to look forward to. If you are a fan of heavy metal, metalcore, pop-punk and rock – amongst other genres then make sure you save the date for the Aftershock Festival.
Aftershock is a two day event located in Sacramento and is loaded to the gills with top acts like Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, Shinedown , Faith No More and Jane’s Addiction. Not sold yet? How about Bring Me the Horizon, Black Veil Brides, Stone Temple Pilots, breaking benjamin and dozens more.
The cool thing about Aftershock is the range of acts. This is a show that plays to a wide range of audience tastes and ages. My teen wants to see All Time Low my husband can’t wait to see Helmet. It’s a family affair and everyone wins.
In between checking out the incredible variety of bands you can swing by Tequila World for some sipping magic or checkout the traveling Jack Daniel’s museum . Next head over to Crazy Dave’s Music Experience to jam on equipment in an interactive exhibit and even meet some band members and maybe win some musical equipment. Finally scare the crap out of yourself by heading over to Slipknot’s Screampark – which is sure to terrify and delight.
Add festival camping options, tons of food vendors, band merch and multiple great acts playing on different stages and you have a recipe for Fall Fun with an edge. Aftershock is the perfect weekend outing for your own personal Adams Family. So load up the camper van, grab Cousin It and get your ass to the Aftershock Festival this October.
October 24th and 25th Sacramento CA
