The music lineup for Monster Energy Aftershock has been announced, as California’s biggest rock festival returns to Discovery Park near downtown Sacramento, CA, Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14.

System Of A Down, Deftones, Alice In Chains, Incubus, Godsmack, Shinedown, 311, Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators, At The Drive-In, Seether and Jonathan Davis lead the lineup for the 7th annual Monster Energy Aftershock.

Festival producers Danny Wimmer Presents hinted at the lineup in February with a teaser video that had many correctly guessing that SYSTEM OF A DOWN would be one of the headliners. The band makes their Monster Energy Aftershock debut in 2018, marking their first-announced appearance in the States in three years, as they celebrate the 20th anniversary of their landmark self-titled first album.

Also leading the talent lineup is Sacramento’s own DEFTONES, who make their debut as a headlining act at Monster Energy Aftershock after previously playing the festival in 2012 and 2015. It’s been seven years since DEFTONES’ last headlining hometown performance, and the band will be celebrating their 30th anniversary this year.

"Sacto, we're coming for you. Proud that you're our capital and not D.C.,” says SYSTEM OF A DOWN’s Serj Tankian, and the band’s guitarist/vocalist Daron Malakian says, “It’s been a minute since we’ve played Sacramento, so it just felt right to return by headlining Aftershock.”

GODSMACK’s Sully Erna says, “Sacto!! We can’t wait to be a part of Aftershock this year. Do not miss this show! It's big, it’s loud and it’s angry…So buckle up, cuz this ride goes reeeeeal fasssst!!! See ya in Oct.!”

The current band lineup for Monster Energy is as follows: System Of A Down, Deftones, Alice In Chains, Incubus, Godsmack, Shinedown, 311, Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators, At The Drive-In, Seether, Jonathan Davis, Bullet For My Valentine, Underoath, Black Veil Brides, Hellyeah, Asking Alexandria, Sevendust, Everlast, GWAR, Emmure, Stick To Your Guns, Dance Gavin Dance, Monster Magnet, Red Sun Rising, Bad Wolves, The Fever 333, Dorothy, Wage War, Plague Vendor, Hyro The Hero, Amigo The Devil, All Them Witches, Slothrust, The Dose, Viza, The Jacks and more to be announced.
