Festival producers revealed the lineup today for the third annual Monster Energy Aftershock Festival, which will once again descend upon Sacramento’s Discovery Park on September 13th & 14th. A considerably different lineup compared to other major rock festivals across the country, this year’s festivities will include the addition of Weezer, Rise Against, AWOLNATION, Bad Religion, Pennywise, and the Offspring to the traditionally all rock and metal show. Rounding out the lineup are the usual suspects: Godsmack, Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Limp Bizkit, Chevelle, Seether, Black Label Society, and many more.
After a sell-out year in 2013 with over 32,000 concertgoers in attendance, Aftershock has expanded to four stages for 2014, which means more bands and even more opportunities for veteran and emerging bands to play at California’s biggest rock festival.

Saturday, September 13:
Weezer, The Offspring, Limp Bizkit, AWOLNATION, Chevelle, Bad Religion, Pepper, Black Label Society, Hellyeah, Memphis May Fire, Fuel, Dead Sara, Nothing More, The Last Internationale, Butcher Babies, Emmure, Sleepwave, Anti-Mortem, Eyes Set To Kill, Viza, Dig The Kid
Sunday, September 14:

The Offspring’s Dexter Holland says, “We’re thrilled to cap off our summer tour at Aftershock 2014 and play our Smash album in its entirety for NorCal music fans. It’s going to be an epic weekend.”
