2019 marks the eighth edition of the festival and also the first year being a three-day festival. 2018’s lineup included headlining sets from System of a Down, Deftones, Alice in Chains, and Incubus. Previous years have included Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, Ozzy Osbourne, Weezer, and Rise Against. This year will also bring a unique experience to the festival including local and fan favorite food vendors and a BoilerMaker pop-up that will feature a Blackened & Enter Night Boilermaker, a collaboration with Stone Brewing Company and Master Distiller Dave Pickerell.
In a press release, Korn’s Brian Welch discussed his excitement playing the festival. “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.” He continues to say “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!”
