Danny Wimmer Presents has announced that Aftershock 2020, scheduled for October 9 – 11 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA, has been rescheduled to October 7 – 10, 2021, and has released the following statement:
After all the harm caused by COVID-19, there is nothing that we wanted more than to be celebrating Aftershock with you this October at Discovery Park for what was going to be a monumental weekend. We, the artists, and Sacramento County all thought we had a shot at being the first post-COVID festival to happen. That really would have been incredible. We waited as long as we could but, unfortunately, the recent spike of cases now requires that we reschedule this year’s sold-out Aftershock to 2021.
As always, thank you so much for your patience. Please know that every decision we made for 2020, and will make for 2021, is with you, our fans and friends, at the top of our minds. We truly hope to see you in 2021. The world needs live music to return so we can feel connected once again, and we can’t wait to bring back the biggest rock experience on the West Coast.
The DWP team is already working hard on Aftershock 2021—October 7, 8, 9 and 10—at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA. Aftershock 2021 will be headlined by Metallica and My Chemical Romance, who were both confirmed for the sold-out 2020 event. Metallica will still perform their highly anticipated two unique sets over two nights. The complete Aftershock 2021 lineup will be announced this October.
In addition, DWP is excited to announce a fourth night to Aftershock 2021, in partnership with Jack Daniel’s, as an epic celebratory evening to kick off the return of California’s favorite rock festival.
