Aftershock Festival—California’s biggest rock fest—returns to Sacramento in less than a month with a newly expanded three-day experience. Last year’s extravaganza welcomed a sold-out crowd of 60,000 fans, and this year’s show is expected to be even better, featuring a rad lineup of musicians and local food vendors. 

Since the Aftershock Festival began in 2012, lineups have highlighted the musical talents of System of a Down, Deftones, Alice in Chains, Incubus, Godsmack, Shinedown, Ozzy Osbourne, Of Mice & Men, Mastodon, Avenged Sevenfold, Primus, Disturbed, and hundreds of other world-class rock stars.
