The much-anticipated music lineup for Monster Energy Aftershock has been announced, as California’s biggest rock festival returns to Discovery Park near downtown Sacramento, CA, Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14.

System Of A Down, Deftones, Alice In Chains, Incubus, Godsmack, Shinedown, 311, Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators, At The Drive-In, Seether and Jonathan Davis lead the lineup for the 7th annual Monster Energy Aftershock.

Festival producers Danny Wimmer Presents hinted at the lineup in February with a teaser video that had many correctly guessing that System Of A Down would be one of the headliners. The band makes their Monster Energy Aftershock debut in 2018, marking their first-announced appearance in the States in three years, as they celebrate the 20th anniversary of their landmark self-titled first album.

Also leading the talent lineup is Sacramento’s own Deftones, who make their debut as a headlining act at Monster Energy Aftershock after previously playing the festival in 2012 and 2015. It’s been seven years since Deftones’ last headlining hometown performance, and the band will be celebrating their 30th anniversary this year.

VIP and General Admission tickets for Monster Energy Aftershock will be available beginning on Friday, April 13 at 12:00 PM PDT. Visit www.AftershockFestival.com for more details.
