LIMP BIZKIT, RANCID, THE OFFSPRING, SOCIAL DISTORTION Among Confirmed Artists For AFTERSHOCK 2021

Danny Wimmer Presents has announced the return of Aftershock — the West Coast's Biggest Rock Festival — to Discovery Park in Sacramento, California on October 7, 8, 9 and 10. The expanded 2021 event will be bigger and better than ever, including the new Thursday night concert, presented by Jack Daniel's — an epic celebratory evening to kick off the anticipated return of the festival that has sold out for the last five consecutive years.

As previously announced, Aftershock 2021 will be headlined by METALLICA (performing two unique sets, one on Friday and one on Sunday) and MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE (Saturday), who were both confirmed for the sold-out postponed 2020 event. The incredible and diverse Aftershock 2021 lineup will also include: LIMP BIZKIT, RANCID, THE OFFSPRING, SOCIAL DISTORTION, RISE AGAINST, VOLBEAT, MACHINE GUN KELLY, MASTODON, GOJIRA, SEETHER, PARKWAY DRIVE, and many more.

Passes for Aftershock 2021 are on sale now at www.AftershockFestival.com.

RANCID said: "We can't wait to play at Aftershock 2021 with our Bay Area brothers METALLICA. We first played with them on the Lollapalooza tour in 1996 along with the RAMONES and later down the road we toured across South America together. It's gonna be wild, see ya in the pit!"

In 2019, Aftershock celebrated its biggest year in the history of the California rock festival. The sold-out 2020 festival was rescheduled to 2021 due to COVID-19 guidelines.

As Aftershock 2021 draws near, Danny Wimmer Presents will be working with local officials to make sure the festival conforms to the then-current social distancing protocols.
