Tool, Slipknot, blink-182, Staind, And More Announced For Aftershock Festival 2019
The American festival season is becoming so packed, between Rocklahoma, Sonic Temple, and Exit 111, that organizers are officially planning fests into the fall. Now, this year’s Aftershock festival has been announced for this October in Sacramento, California, this fall, and it’s got one hell of a line-up.
Headlining the festival are Tool, Slipknot, blink-182, Rob Zombie, Korn, and Staind, over the course of October 11th, 12th, and 13th. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg: rounding out the line-up are Lamb Of God, Bring Me The Horizon, A Day To Remember, Marilyn Manson, Clutch, Halestorm, Dropkick Murphys, Chevelle, Stone Temple Pilots, Babymetal, Gojira, Motionless In White, and Beartooth to name a few of the other artists on the roster.
Of the festival, Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch said, “Aftershock Festival is always a unique experience for Korn compared to other festivals. 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!”
