System Of A Down, Deftones, Alice In Chains Announced For Aftershock 2018
Monster Energy Aftershock Festival has announced its official lineup for 2018, bringing a satisfying conclusion to the ongoing rumors that have been circulating around the potential return of System Of A Down after a three-year break in touring. The GRAMMY-winning alt-metal outfit will headline the seventh annual installment of the Sacramento, Calif.,-based hard rock festival, alongside Deftones, Alice In Chains, Incubus, and many more.
With such a stacked lineup of headliners, any festival could almost be excused for taking a snooze on the middle card talent, but instead the hits just keep coming. Godsmack, Shinedown, 311, Slash, At The Drive In, Bullet For My Valentine, Underoath, and Black Veil Brides are all also making appearances at Aftershock 2018, with additional support from some great new acts on the rise, such as Dorothy.
California's @MonsterMusic #Aftershock Festival is returning for our 7th year! @systemofadown, @deftones, @AliceInChains, @IncubusBand, & @godsmack, are taking Sacramento by storm on Oct 13th & 14th!
