The Monster Energy Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA has been announced with official dates and listed performers. 2015 marks the fourth year the Aftershock festival has presented today’s current and classic names in hard rock and metal, and this year continues the tradition with Slipknot, Faith No More, Deftones, Shinedown, Jane’s Addiction, Marilyn Manson, Coheed & Cambria, Stone Temple Pilots, Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Bring Me The Horizon, All Time Low, Sleeping With Sirens, Eagles of Death Metal, Black Veil Brides, and many more.
The addition to an amazing lineup that will feature something for every rock fan across four stages in two days is probably one of the most exciting inclusions to a festival in years: NXT. The Orlando based developmental field for WWE features some of the best professional wrestlers from around the world (Japan, Ireland, UK, US, etc.) and brought them to one organization and present a full production show with high energy, fan interaction, amazing lights and stage spectacles, and a current wrestling product that fans of the sport can get behind. Seeing Finn Balor’s entrance is worth admission alone.
This year’s Aftershock is scheduled to his Oct 24th and 25th at Gibson Ranch just outside Sacramento. Some of the performers have spoken about Aftershock and their excitement.
Corey Taylor of Slipknot says, “We are really looking forward to playing AFTERSHOCK in Sacramento! A lot of great bands—can’t wait to see everyone, from Manson to Clutch. Sacramento won’t know what hit it when me and my friends are through.”
Deftones‘ Chino Moreno says, “We’re looking forward to being one of the headliners at AFTERSHOCK this year and performing in our hometown. It’s always special to return to the city that made us.”

I cannot recommend this lineup or experience enough. This many bands + NXT Live + THAT MANY CONCERT GIRLS is something that everyone should get behind. If you are even remotely close to Sacramento in the end of October or are able to make the trip, then get your VIP tickets and go. It will be a weekend worth saving up for and remembering.
