The forth installment of Monster Energy’s Aftershock Festival has one of the best rock lineups of 2015
Initially a one day festival with a mere 14 bands Aftershock has grown by leaps and bounds, not simply by adding a second day in 2013 but by relocating itself to Gibson Ranch County Park and transforming itself into something larger than life, just like many of Danny Wimmer’s other festivals.
If you really want to capture the full Aftershock experience then camping is the way to go, not only do you get exclusive eateries, facilities, and prime viewing areas, but you are also treated to exclusive performances that the main festival concert goers just don’t get.
This years highlights include;
- Bring Me The Horizon which will be making their first appearance hot on the heels of their latest release “That’s The Spirit”
- Hometown heroes Deftones returning to Aftershock in 2015 after a 3 year absence.
- Seether make their second consecutive appearance.
- Stone Temple Pilots return without Scott Weiland on vocals.
- Papa Roach returns after their memorable 2013 performance which featured a cameo appearance by former member Dave Buckner on drums.
- Music heavyweights Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, Jane’s Addiction, and Faith No More make their first appearance in 2015
