It looks like Aftershock Festival will be bigger and better than ever in 2021. On Thursday, the festival confirmed that Machine Gun Kelly, Rise Against, Parkway Drive and Rancid are just a few of the artists joining the 2021 festival lineup.
As well, it looks like headliners My Chemical Romance aren’t the only ones performing a reunion set at next year’s event.
Due to the pandemic, Aftershock 2020 was postponed. Shortly after, however, it was confirmed that MCR and Metallica are returning as headliners in 2021.
.@AFTERSHOCKSAC, originally scheduled for early October, has been postponed and will now take place next year.

The event, which was supposed to happen this month, is now taking place from Oct. 7 – 10, 2021. As well, an additional day has been added for next year’s festival.
“We are excited to announce that, thanks to our friends at Jack Daniel’s, we are adding a fourth night to Aftershock 2021, as an epic celebratory evening to kick-off the return of California’s favorite rock festival.”
Now, Aftershock has announced a slew of other artists that are playing the festival in 2021. Limp Bizkit, The Offspring, Social Distortion, Volbeat, Mastodon, Gojira and SEETHER are just a few of the acts joining Aftershock 2021.
As well, one band is planning to reunite on the Saturday date of the festival for a special set. A mysterious spot is included on the festival’s poster for the artist. However, it looks like we are going to have to wait to find out who it is.
