Aftershock 2023 fans can still secure passes but time is running out

Still some deals available; don't forget shuttle passes


You can feel the sweet tension building as time runs out for tickets to one or all of the four mind-blowing days of the upcoming Aftershock 2023 at Discovery Park in Sacramento — the biggest rock festival on the West Coast.

Single day VIP passes for Friday, Oct. 6; and Saturday, Oct 7, at Aftershock 2023 are sold out, as per the official website this weekend, though fan-to-fan exchange passes can still be an option. 

That said, passes for Single Day General Admission and Weekend 4-Day General Admission are still very much available, but price levels will be rising. And for those who really want to splurge, you better hurry up and snag what’s left of the Weekend 4-Day VIP passes.

Friday night’s lineup appears to be in particular demand with bands such as Godsmack, Tool, Limp Bizkit, Megadeth, Coheed and Cambria, Bad Omens, and more – all in one place. 

In all, Aftershock 2023 is offering its most packed lineup yet with 95-plus bands over four full days, led by headliners Guns N’ Roses, Tool, Avenged Sevenfold and Korn. 

The weekend’s curated lineup of rock and metal heavyweights also includes Pantera, Incubus, Queens of the Stone Age, Rancid, Turnstile, 311, The Cult, AFI, I Prevail, Dance Gavin Dance, among many others. 

• Something else to consider: Shuttle passes!

Park & Ride Shuttle passes were still available as of Aug. 21, and it’s highly recommended to use this service. Avoid the traffic hassle and get these passes while you can. It’s the best, and most affordable, way to get to Discovery Park.

The location will be back at Cal Expo located at 1600 Exposition Blvd in Sacramento. Each Park & Ride Shuttle Pass includes free parking for your vehicle at Cal Expo and a non-stop shuttle to and from the festival site.
On event days, shuttles will begin service approximately 60 minutes prior to the gate opening time. Shuttles will run continuously throughout the day, including an hour after the end of the festival each night.
