POLLSTAR INTERVIEWS DANNY HAYES ON “PREPPING AFTERSHOCK”
Danny Hayes, CEO of Danny Wimmer Presents, gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the annual Monster Energy Aftershock Festival, now in its fifth year.
Hayes had plenty to say about this year’s Aftershock, planned for Oct. 22-23 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, Calif. With a lineup that includes Tool, Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer, and Korn, Aftershock delivers two solid days of thundering riffs, pounding drums and searing guitar brilliance.
Growing attendance, the art of constructing the Aftershock lineup and festival security were just a few of the topics covered in an email conversation. The promoter also described the festival’s involvement with the local community and how everyone at Danny Wimmer Presents strives to make each Aftershock better than the previous year’s extravaganza.
