Aftershock Festival’s 2019 lineup proves there’s just too much talent for two days, as they expand the weekend to three full days of performances. Taking place in Sacramento, Calif. from October 11-13, the festival will celebrate its eighth anniversary at Discovery Park near the city center. As usual, the lineup is laden with Ernie Ball artists, and festival goers are guaranteed to hear plenty of that classic rock n’ roll Slinky tone. Tickets go on sale April 26. Don’t miss your chance to purchase your ticket while they’re still available!
