Tickets On Sale Monday, October 14 at 9:00 AM PT / Noon ET
Danny Wimmer Presents announced this morning that rock icons Metallica will exclusively headline all five of the premier independent producer’s hard rock festivals in 2020 in a unique collaboration unprecedented for any American festival promoter or band. Recently named the world’s biggest all-time touring act by Pollstar, Metallica will—for the first time ever—perform two separate headlining sets at Aftershock (October 9-11) at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA.
These events will be the only chance to see Metallica at a U.S. festival in 2020.
In addition to two appearances at Aftershock, Metallica will also deliver a unique set list for each performance.
“Metallica isn’t just another headliner. When Metallica takes the stage, it’s an event. It’s an experience. That’s the same standard we’ve set for every DWP festival – from the first band to the last band, and everything that happens in between. I can’t wait to bring the biggest band in the world to the biggest rock festivals in America. Metallica paved this road that we travel. How many artists on the bill at these five festivals first picked up an instrument, or first started a band, because of Metallica?”Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents
