Danny Wimmer Presents Announces Aftershock’s Full 2022 Lineup
Aftershock, hosted in Sacramento’s Discovery Park, has announced possibly the most packed lineup of theirs to date as they celebrate their tenth year running.
The West Coast’s biggest rock festival returns on October 6-9, 2022 bigger than ever, expanding to four full days (after a half 4th day in 2021), adding a 4th music stage and featuring over 90 bands. The latest edition aims to top 2021’s record-setting, sold-out attendance of 145,000, which marked five consecutive sold out events for the festival.
The weekend’s stellar lineup of rock and metal heavyweights features headliners Slipknot and Rob Zombie (Thursday), KISS and Judas Priest (Friday), My Chemical Romance and Papa Roach (Saturday) and Foo Fighters and Shinedown (Sunday), along with a range of additional top music artists including Bring Me The Horizon, Evanescence, Lamb Of God, A Day To Remember, Architects, Halestorm, Stone Temple Pilots, Chevelle, and many more.
