    In a press release, Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch stated, “Aftershock Festival is always a unique experience for Korn compared to other festivals. One of the main reasons is we have many friends and family that live near Sacto, so it’s always like a family reunion when we play Aftershock. We’ve been gone a while and we’re coming back this year with a new album, new stage look, and a new excitement that is very contagious! We feel like we are on fire right now and our fans are gonna be fuel for the flames!”


    The festival will also feature a collaboration with Metallica’s Blackened Whiskey and Enter Night Pilsner, which will be served to concertgoers as part of a pop-up experience on the festival grounds.
