Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix said: “I am over the moon stoked to be one of the headliners of Aftershock this year. Honestly, this is like a dream come true. We have worked our whole career for moments like this, and cannot wait to be back in Sacramento, where it all began, for the hometown throwdown!!!! NorCal better be f**king ready, ’cause it’s about to go down at Aftershock 2022!!!!!”
“Aftershock is one of our favorite festivals. Always an amazing weekend. We are ready to take it to the next level this year,” says Rob Zombie.
Amy Lee of Evanescence adds: “We are so stoked to play at Aftershock in Sacramento this fall! My Chemical Romance, Foo Fighters, KISS, Slipknot, there’s so much to look forward to! We absolutely cannot wait for this epic festival.”
Sacramento Bee has called Aftershock “one of the country’s most anticipated hard rock events.” The 2021 event is estimated to have brought in $30 million to the local economy, with 75% of the attendees traveling to Aftershock from outside the region, according to Mike Testa, CEO of Visit Sacramento.
