The bill for the 2024 Aftershock festival has been confirmed, and it features the reunited Slayer along with fellow headliners Iron Maiden, Pantera, Slipknot, Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest, Five Finger Death Punch and Disturbed. The four-day fest is set for 10-13 October at Discovery Park in Sacramento, California.

The fest will mark Slayer’s only West Coast appearance of 2024, as well as Maiden’s only US festival gig of the year. Slayer recently announced that they’d be reuniting to play Riot Fest and Louder Than Life, marking their first shows since wrapping up their farewell tour in November 2019. Meanwhile, Pantera are making good on their promise to play Aftershock after bowing out last year.

Four-day passes and single-day tickets are available here. If passes sell out, fans can check StubHub, where your purchase is 100% guaranteed through StubHub’s Fan Protect program. Visit the event’s official website for ticket news and further information.
