Saving the best for last?  It appears so, today Aftershock’s lineup was announced and holy shit it is killer.

Saturday, October 21st headlining is Nine Inch Nails (NIN)…wait, what?  Yes, NINE INCH NAILS!!! Supporting NIN is A Perfect Circle, Stone Sour, Mastodon, Gojira, Highly Suspect, Eagles of Death Metal, Tech N9NE, Anti-Flag, August Burns Red, Nothing More, Deap Vally, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Code Orange, Greta Van Fleet, Bleeker, and While She Sleeps.  Not going to lie, 8 of these bands are on my personal “if I ruled the festival lineup world” dream artists to play….and we are only 50% through the festival lineup.  I know, insanity!

Sunday, October 22nd headliner is Ozzy Ozbourne and if that crazy train was not enough to make Aftershock kickass,  supporting him is none other than Five Finger Death Punch (5FDP), Marilyn Manson, Halestorm, Suicidal Tendencies, In This Moment, Hollywood Undead, Of Mice & Men, Steel Panther, Beartooth, Starset, Power Trip, Fozzy, New Years Day, DED, Black Map, and Them Evils. Let’s add another 5 of my favorites to that list.  So if you are keeping count, that is thirteen, THIRTEEN of my DREAM FESTIVAL LINEUP and there are only 60 on the list with like 10 of them being dead!

Sacramento, California not only gets beautiful weather, sun-kissed beach babes, but they also get the BEST festival lineup of the 2017 season.  SOME PEOPLE HAVE ALL THE LUCK!

You can buy tickets  beginning June 9th (Friday) here: at the level 1 price of $149.50 + fees (holy crap that is a deal), with them increase in price over time until they reach standard festival pricing of $214.50 + fees.

Single tickets are available as well, but who goes to a single day of a festival?!  You’d be crazy to do such a thing!
