Aftershock Music Festival has grown to become one of the West Coast’s premiere events for rock music, as well as one of California’s largest festvals. With big-name artists ranging from metal to hard rock to punk and hardcore, Aftershock’s 2023 lineup reads like the Best Of racks of an underground record store’s shelves.
Guns N’ Roses, Pantera, Korn, Tool, Turnstile, Incubus, Megadeth, Limp Bizkit, Avenged Sevenfold, AFI, and Rancid top the bill across the 4 days. Nearly 100 bands in total will take over the multiple stages at Sacramento’s Discovery Park this October.
Notable acts also include Converge, The Cult, The Bronx, L7, Fever 333 and Deafheaven. With more than 160,000 people in attendance at last year’s festival, Aftershock is one of the single events on the West Coast that can gather multiple performers who themselves will sell out arenas on their own tours.
Frontgate Ticketing will handle tickets this year, which include four day regular and VIP options, single day options, and pass & hotel packages.
